Good work place with some great people but higher management needs to step up their game.
Software Engineer (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – January 29, 2018
I have worked with Comscore for a little more than a year. The things that I enjoyed the most were good team spirit, great and collaborative team members and immediate supervisors, fair work life balance, learning some new technologies. The downsides are too much politics at upper levels of management affects work. Lack of documentation and proper on-boarding to new hires. Too many stakeholders in a project which sometimes makes it difficult to follow direction.
Manager (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – November 5, 2018
If you are not fresh out of college, with little to no experience, this is not the place for you. The job profile is of a "worker bee", just turn around projects, without strategic thought and no collaboration with the clients. Mid-management is extremely impersonal to team members, and are around to QA deliverables, or at the most give a quote based on project specs.
There has been severe financial accounting issues, and turnover at the top brass; CEO, CFO, CTO, COO left within a span of 4 months. Company had 3 rounds of layoffs in one year.
Benefits are mediocre. You pay $100+ every month for health coverage, and 401K match is a joke.
Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 25, 2018
The company has been in the midst of and growing out of turmoil since I began. There has been a lot of organizational shifting and that has led to layoffs, job insecurity, and low morale.
But, the company does seem to be turning a corner on that front. I think in another year, they might fully be recovered but it all depends on the decisions being made now. Unfortunately, those decisions are made by higher ups and not necessarily well communicated to those doing the work.
DevOps Engineer (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – July 26, 2018
Annual layoffs before Christmas. Employment contract forces you into binding arbitration, anti-compete clause should you want to leave. Legal department has a history of sending threatening letters to new employers around town when you do leave. Upper & middle management is constantly churning (4th CEO in 4 years) and still dealing with fallout from a financial crisis.
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 11, 2018
I learned a lot from management over the years including certain details in excel and some of the databases. Everyone was friendly and helpful when assistance was needed. The hardest part was worrying about job security.
Data Entry Calendar Clerk (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – March 19, 2018
I worked temporary here from May to August. Super relaxed with a boss that was friendly and always available to answer questions. The job was super simple and it definitely wasn't a job that you really had to think at. Relatively boring, but I set my own pace and felt like I was productive. The company had complementary snacks and drinks. I really enjoyed my time there and would happily do so again.
Full-time, easy work, friendly and relaxed atmosphere
Vice President Cross-Platform Program Management (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 19, 2018
Very excited when I first joined the team at comScore. The whole company is comprised of brilliant people developing innovative products to understand consumer behavior. Unfortunately, what the company has in potential with its intellectual capital is limited by its weakness in structure and management. Hopeful the company will be able to transition out of this as management changes are on the horizon.
SVP Operations and Digital Product Services (Current Employee) – Evansville, IN – March 8, 2018
I managed multiple teams that supported comScore's clients in the set up, execution and delivery of products/results. This included Client Insights, Operations and Product Support. I resolved top tier client issues and worked with extensive technology to deliver what was needed by our clients. I received additional teams each year to manage and my responsibilities covered the U.S. and all International client support for multiple products. I also worked closely with Products to design, improve and implement new products.
Revenue Accountant (Former Employee) – Reston, VA – February 13, 2018
Much of the work day in the accounting department consisted of waiting on the sales team, which in turn backed up our work load and caused long hours toward the end of each month/quarter. Often times requiring coming in when the office was closed.
Management operates on an extremely backwards system, and many managers are extremely unfit for their positions, creating a hostile and toxic working environment.
Manager (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – December 8, 2017
Fast paced, ever changing and highly competitive environment Lots of products to learn Really intelligent people working there Opportunities exist for those who are aggressive and willing to work Fun most of the time
