Challenging and interesting

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

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

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

ConsLayoffs - 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 Senior ManagementWeed 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Sales Manager

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

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

ProsSmart, 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.

ConsExecutive 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 Senior ManagementVision and messaging comes from the top. This should be driven top down.

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

Constant change

Client Service Manager (Former Employee)

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

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

ConsReally 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 Senior ManagementDo 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good place to start a career but it really matters which team you're on

Data Analyst (Current Employee)
Reston, VA (US)

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

ProsRelaxed work environment, flexible hours, generous time off policy. A good place to start out and make friends and get your feet wet in the corporate culture.

ConsSome teams promote their employees all the time, some don't at all which seems unfair. Management tends to play favorites and those who aren't in the "in-crowd" can be left behind

Advice to Senior ManagementStop playing favorites. Consider not waiting until the last minute to solve problems and forcing everyone to scramble.

comScore is an analytics company, not tech, that moves slowly and is very reactionary to market need.

ProsThey have a great brand name.

ConsSlow moving and very obviously not a dynamic moving company.
