    Good Start for a new graduate

    Data Analyst (Current Employee) Reston, VA (US)

    ProsGood start salary. Learning curve is very high so you can learn tons of stuff.
    Good for your logic thinking ability. Relatively easy to be promoted to senior analyst.

    ConsPoor management. Lots of people are newly promoted to the leadership and they don't know how to coordinate different groups and give recognition which can be seen as incentives for employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good launching pad - horrible management

    Senior Client Service Analyst (Former Employee) Reston, VA (US)

    ProsTalented, smart co-workers. Exposure to a wide variety of brands and clients. The industry is growing and the job is fast-paced. You are always learning something new and trying to get recruited by clients and other players in the digital space. comScore is very well known and respected.

    ConsManagement does not do a good job of retaining talent.
    Performance is not compensated adequately or fairly across different departments.
    Some teams can be very "clique-ish" and do not recognize internal problems such as poor management skills and employee turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI very much agree with some of the below comments regarding management, especially this one: High turnover in a particular department is a sign that the manager isn't doing a very good job. It truly is a shame to lose good workers because of one persons poor management skills.

    This could not be more true. Stop enabling terrible managers! They may do their day to day jobs well but if they are the reason you are losing the rest of your talent pool then they should not be managers.

    Generally an okay company

    Client Service Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsHelpful people, exciting culture, generally easy work, excellent benefits - this is a good stop on the way to bigger and better things. Sr. management decides the direction of the company and that's that - there is no questioning it, but it is an excellent place to learn the ropes. I would strongly recommend this company to recent graduates, but you need to have an exit strategy in mind.

    ConsMassively political, dodgy practices, some pretty big egos which are unnecessarily inflated, limited growth opportunities

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in ethics, be less driven by chasing the next quarter.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Challenging and interesting

    Research Manager (Current Employee) Reston, VA (US)

    ProsCreating new technology and products all the time
    Work with a lot of very intelligent people
    Laid back office atmosphere and culture

    ConsLayoffs - across the board and targeted (4 rounds in 5.5 years working here).
    Sales staff - often sell garbage and don't support their business post-sale, creating a lot of extra work for those who are expected to deliver.
    Promotions - really only based on tenure, not so much on performance. There are some highly unqualified people working in senior level positions as a result.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWeed out the poor performers and focus more on performance when considering promotions. Don't promise things to clients that you know can't be delivered.

    Sales Manager

    Sales Manager (Current Employee) Reston, VA (US)

    ProsSmart, hardworking and loyal employees that are often working late nights to meet deadlines and objectives. Loved working with talented people and comScore is full of them.

    ConsExecutive team needs to drive a vision throughout the organization that all may understand follow. When talent leaves, it is often a result or lack of upside. comScore needs to create a better path of success.

    Advice to Senior ManagementVision and messaging comes from the top. This should be driven top down.

    Constant change

    Client Service Manager (Former Employee)

    Prosgreat peers, smart people, family friendly; Ability to work remotely if needed.

    ConsReally difficult to understand how products work together; constant re-org and not enough resources to get everything done. Benefits are really average for the industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo a better job understanding where you need resources and stop reorganizing every few months. The constant change makes it really hard to focus on clients.
