    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.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, Good reputation

    Cons

    Low pay, high Churn since they wont match industry salaries, new CEO not as good as the old one. A few brilliant people produce the solutions that are keeping the company running, senior executives are just riding the wave.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Match salaries and try to keep your people. Stock is doing well and would do better with lower churn. Invest in growing the business in other areas - diversify, otherwise the day some other company comes up with better solutions or government puts stricter privacy regulations, we are done.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at comScore full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There's some great people who work here. Personally, too smart and talented to be wasted at comscore in my opinion. Health/Dental Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Management is horrible. They do not care about work-life balance. It used to be a great company to work for, but new management came in and all the good people either left/got fired or let go. Management tells you that they're on your side, but they're so heartless and will stab you in the back at any given notice. The culture now is pretty much, you come in, put your head down, work and go home. You talk to someone, you're worried that you'll lose your job. Not good mentally if this is something you're looking long term.
