    Internet Tech Company on the Rise

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON (Canada)

    I worked at comScore full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked out of the Canadian offices:
    - Good office culture (employees got a long quite well)
    - Plenty of snacks and drinks stocked in the kitchen
    - Good potential for personal growth (if going into Sales is your preference)
    - 3 weeks vacation starting (pretty on par with most tech companies)
    - Work/ Life balance is there and we get laptops to work from home for any emergencies

    Cons

    - The only way to grow within the Canadian offices if you are part of the client service team is to move into Sales. For those people that didn't want to go that route, their career path stagnated. Because the Canadian office is just a remote office of the US headquarters, it is really hard to carve out a long term career where you'd be able to work different areas of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Open up more avenues of growth for individuals. The company is in a good position for future development and ensuring you attract top talent is key to sustained growth long-term.

    Former Employee - Client Service Specialist  in  Seattle, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Client Service Specialist in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at comScore full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The satellite offices allow to you to work with much freedom and independence. The Pioneer Square office in Seattle, in particular, is in a great location. comScore is well-known in digital advertising and therefore makes for a decent first job.

    Cons

    I joined comScore with one of their acquired companies. From the onset, it was very clear that employees of acquired other companies were not happy with the way integration was handled and I quickly gained the same opinion. With very few growth opportunities and poor access to management, many of my former team members left within the first year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to listen to your employees and respond to their concerns.

    Former Employee - Technical Consultant Digital Analytix in Amsterdam (Netherlands)

    I worked at comScore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    friendly office sphere, free softdrinks, coffee and snacks, highly skilled employees, benefits and perks are above average

    Cons

    sometimes procedures are unclear, the support and consulting departments are fighting between each other over responsibilities, within the support department you need to be friends with the managers and highly socially engaged outside the office to be able to proceed to a higher level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    watch out on friend politics

    Former Employee - Senior Director  in  Reston, VA (US)
    Former Employee - Senior Director in Reston, VA (US)

    I worked at comScore full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Upward mobility for smart, creative, hardworking people; solid senior management team; flexibility given to top performers; great industry

    Cons

    Lack of investment in people management skill development; very aggressive revenue goals create a lot of stress from top-down; very data-heavy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create avenues for young analysts to get exposure and make an impact; collect feedback from the bottom of the organization to better understand the effectiveness of middle management; do more internal education -- everyone that works there should be an expert in digital

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

    I have been working at comScore full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Layoffs - 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 ManagementAdvice

    Weed 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.

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

    I have been working at comScore full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Smart, 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.

    Cons

    Executive 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 ManagementAdvice

    Vision and messaging comes from the top. This should be driven top down.

    Former Employee - Client Service Manager

    I worked at comScore full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Really 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 ManagementAdvice

    Do 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.
