    Pros

    comScore is a great place to learn about the media industry. If you're the type of person who thrives on thinking outside the box, you would love comScore. The free drinks/snacks are awesome too!

    Cons

    Your experience is contingent upon your team. Some teams are innovative, cutting-edge, and function really well. Others are stuck in their ways. Very siloed teams at comScore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't put out press releases without a solid and tested product to back them up!

    Pros

    Pretty flexible, which keeps people around a long time

    Cons

    Many managers are promoted into management because of tenure - not for any other reason. Managers are not trained and very average. No mentorship, lots of finger-pointing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It doesn't matter what I say, they will never listen.

    Pros

    Exposure across broad areas of digital
    Small company feel
    High degree of flexibility in terms of hours, location, work from home

    Cons

    Stubborn and political at the top
    Only as innovative as it has to be

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on short-term stock price and focus on long-term expansion into broader digital measurement.

    I worked at comScore full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very smart group of folks. Many different divisions and solution sets on which to work. Relatively flexibly work environment. Wonderful and exciting clients.

    Cons

    HR not an advocate for employees and workers feel like they cannot get help.Sales Operations folks are inexperienced creating realistic comp plans that reward and incent sales people.comp plans change each year and not for the better. Company has grown so large that your division/team/region may get completely lost in the shuffle of product management roadmaps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a very close looks at why so many employees have been leaving. What divisions are they in? Who are their managers? What roles are they in? comScore is a research company. But if you do not do research on why you cannot retain strong talent then you are failing yourself. And for god sake's, start doing exit interviews! Your products are superb, but if you fail to retain your employees not only will you fail in meeting your revenue goals, but you will get very bad WOM reviews about working at the company.

    Pros

    Nice computers, nice office, 3 weeks vacation, benefits. Good Pay.

    Cons

    They always say they are still a small start up. So far from the truth, run like a corporation with a lot of red tape. Try to get you to drink the Kool-Aid. Many very cocky employees with no reason to act in that manner. A lot of good talent is ignored because of seniority or connections to upper management.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good compensation, pleasant office space. Everyone I worked with was friendly, highly competent, and intelligent. I enjoyed eating out with my co-workers regularly. Was motivated to high standard of work by my colleagues. Sadly, there were layoffs and many of these great people dispersed.

    Cons

    Less direct communication from management than in other companies I've worked for. Understanding of the business imperative of our group and revenue goals relative to company goals was not so strong. I like to know how my job and contributions are tied to the company's larger goals.

    Pros

    Global leader company on audience and analytics with great solutions.

    Cons

    I personally commented to my comScore responsables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To try to listen more the local sales team to adapt the product, prices and strategy. There is high lack of visibility from sales team of the products margins which helps greatly to setup different offers to indiviudal clients. also during the speech. Telco are moving to be customer-centric, but still high percentage of network-centric decissions, and comScore Product, Marketing and Sales miss to adapt the product, and speech for them.

    Breaking the Telco accounts by products minimize the effort done by comScore in particular accounts. Big Data is audience, advertising, web and network data...not only network.

    And Telco acounts are huge, needs time, and close contact...
