Great to be part of a growing company

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

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate 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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Filled with smart, data-savvy, down-to-earth people

Senior Research Manager (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL (US)

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

ProsGood 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.

ConsLess 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.

Laid back atmosphere and great client exposure

Client Service Analyst (Current Employee)
Reston, VA (US)

I have been working at comScore

ProsThere is a very laid back atmosphere where employees enjoy a business casual attire. The cafeteria has an xBox and is stocked with snacks, letting you relax when things get stressful. Exposure to clients is great and allows entry level employees to hit the ground running. There is very much an entrepreneurial atmosphere, allowing employees to grow the business organically and tackle challenges in a fast-paced technology based firm.

ConsOccasionally it might be difficult to break away from work. Since there is a large learning curve and peak workloads, you might find yourself working late into one night and similarly having little to do another day. Management understands this and is flexible in allowing privileges to compensate for long nights.

Innovative company with best in breed product suite

Client Service Analyst (Current Employee)
New York, NY (US)

I have been working at comScore

ProsAt comScore, there is an unwavering focus on innovation and product improvement. The list of clients that comScore services is extensive and impressive, giving employees the chance to work on top brands. Furthermore, the work environment is incredibly friendly and senior management is highly accessible and engaged.

ConsAs with most market research and consulting companies, the work life balance can suffer from time to time. This is particularly evident in the 4th quarter.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to innovate and strive to become the currency of digital advertising from both a planning and measurement point of view.

comScore is a great place to start your career

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Reston, VA (US)

I worked at comScore

ProsGood place to work. Management leaves you with a lot of responsibility very early in your career. Decent pay grade.

ConsLots of responsibility really early in your career is not ideal for some. Some people can remain stagnant throughout their career at comscore.

Advice to Senior ManagementWould be wise to promote high risers more quickly based on their work. Otherwise, they'll find interest in other companies.
