    Pros

    You can work from your homeoffice, you can get a company car, a laptop and a cellphone
    Good products

    Cons

    Not engough space to fill in all the cons in this field, but the most important for me is that they always find a way not to pay or to avoid paying your commission. They chang the conditions on this, on your job title and on your assigned task at any time the like without explantion and communication. NO matter what your contract states the change it to their own discretion. The company has an extrem high employee churn rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to be honest, say what you do and do what you say and respect your employees.

    Current Employee - Intern in Reston, VA (US)

    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

    comScore is at the forefront of digital measurement and analytics which makes for a very exciting work environment.

    Cons

    Corporate culture is very much driven by which department you're in. No overarching values across all groups that tie them together.

    Pros

    Smart, talented employees. Well-known respected company - a good place to have on your resume. Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Management style is directionally vague. Many of the core senior people have left. The company does not do a good job of retaining people - very high turn-over. A pretty high degree of politics and clique's. The company has too many products and sales is not rewarded for selling any particular product line. There's a lack of focus/resources on any other product outside of vCE

    Pros

    Good start salary. Learning curve is very high so you can learn tons of stuff.
    Good for your logic thinking ability. Relatively easy to be promoted to senior analyst.

    Cons

    Poor management. Lots of people are newly promoted to the leadership and they don't know how to coordinate different groups and give recognition which can be seen as incentives for employees.
