    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.

    Current Employee - Intern in Reston, VA (US)

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

    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

    Dynamic and fast paced environment.
    Intelligent and forward looking people to work with who value continued progress and innovation.
    Fun and frequent team events and casual dress code.

    401K is not so great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in people who work for you by providing continuous industry standard training in their field and provide more opportunities for career growth.

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

    I have been working at comScore full-time

    Pros

    Developing some very interesting products and solutions for the digital industry. The company - and hence the employees - is viewed as an independent third-party to the media buyers and sellers. Flexible time off policy, but work from home is normal.

    Cons

    Senior Management focus really on US products and not much of US products launched outside of the US. Some markets get more products than others. There is no roll out plan for the markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please focus on international development. invest in people too.

    Current Employee - Client Service Manager

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

    Pros

    Freedom- Just get the work done and the company doesn't bother what else you are doing. Travel in Sales/Servicing roles is immense (If you like to travel), JAPAC management is really good.

    Cons

    Monotonous work, Not much freedom to explore roles within the company (at least in APAC)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introduce new products, motivate employees and try being more communicative

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

    Pros

    People are what make comScore great. From the leadership on down they are approachable and supportive.

    Cons

    Project driven environment and sometimes there can be extremely tight timelines. Account folk (i.e. VPs/SVPs) do not necessarily have a research background. They will alter deadlines and even change the scope of work on you without your knowledge. This unfortunately mean that you need to take an aggressive project management role in addition to your other duties.

    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
