    Pros

    comScore is at the forefront of digital measurement and analytics which makes for a very exciting work environment.

    Pros

    Smart workforce and very flexible management (though I've heard this varies by department). Work-life balance was very good, though it can get busy during certain months. There are many opportunities to try your hand in different areas of the business and management is open to development opportunities.

    Cons

    Client expectations can sometimes be unreasonable as well as management's catering to client whims.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue rewarding employees for good work and presenting opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    Smart, talented employees. Well-known respected company - a good place to have on your resume. Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Management style is directionally vague. Many of the core senior people have left. The company does not do a good job of retaining people - very high turn-over. A pretty high degree of politics and clique's. The company has too many products and sales is not rewarded for selling any particular product line. There's a lack of focus/resources on any other product outside of vCE

    I have been working at comScore full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    comScore is a great place to work. There is a real spirit of innovation and creativity. There are very few problems with office politics and the upper management is very accessible. Has the perks of both a small and large company. Decent time off and good benefits.

    Cons

    High amounts of customization for clients means that there is some inconsistency in certain applications within the company and poor documentation on the more advanced product details. There is a pretty steep learning curve to attain more than average proficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold the sales team accountable for their screwups!! Hold the developers accountable for more transparent and thorough documentation.

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

    I worked at comScore full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented, 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    I 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.
