    I have been working at comScore full-time (less than an 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.

    I have been working at comScore full-time (more than an 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.

    Great industry clout, but US focused and quarterly driven

    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 (more than an 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 (more than an 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.
