Disappointing Experience
Senior Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAJune 7, 2013
Pros:

All I could come up with is:

1. Work with "big name" companies.

2. Work with "real time" data.

... it's a short list, I know.

Cons:

1. Very cliquish; difficult to "break in" to the group. Some long-time employees treat you with disrespect because you're "the new guy" so I found it very difficult to fit in.

2. While they talk about work-life balance, they don't actually practice it. You're to be "plugged in" all the time. They want you online on your company-issued laptop and they "strongly encourage" you to set up your work email on your personal cell phone, too. It basically becomes a 24-hour per day job.

Get an email at 2:15AM? You better answer it! If you wait until you get to the office in the morning, you'll be questioned about why you didn't answer it, lectured as to how important it is that you be "in the loop".

3. Telecommuting is offered, but there definition is a little different. They'll let you work from home, but that's after a 10+ hour day of working in the office.

4. Talent flight. I would hear the conversations in the break room or cafeteria of people who were openly complaining about the environment and their desire to leave as soon as they can. I wasn't surprised when I would hear that so-and-so had left to work for another company.

5. Rumor mongering! Goodness gracious but there was always someone talking about someone else! Now that I think about it, this is tied to Cons #1....

6. Questionable practices and methodologies. They are in a competitive market but I saw "smudging of numbers" -- "Is that a 1 or a 7? Let's see how it works out with
  more... both and go with the one that gives us the best answer!"  less
Pros
you get to work with "big name" companies; you get to work with "real time" data.
Cons
no work-life balance; very cliquish; questionable methodologies/practices.

Executive management team with world-class suite of products
Senior Director (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAOctober 1, 2014
It was such a pleasure to work at ComSCore. It is essentially a group of world-class marketers in their own right coming together to help grow some of the biggest businesses on the planet by not just giving them access to data but telling them the business implications. Extremely rewarding to consult clients on their usage of behavioral data and consumer insights as they refined their consumer experiences and the various touch points associated with each. Whether the task was site optimization, campaign optimization and effectiveness or conducting primary qual/quant research, helping clients to be more informed and asking "What if...?" as a means of inspiring new ways of thinking about the clients business and comScore's opportunity to strategically impact it was paramount.
Pros
excellent professional growth opportunity, compensation
Cons
pioneer square is still up-and-coming - but it's changing fast!!

Fun workplace.
Statistical Analyst (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAFebruary 2, 2015
Working schedule is flexible. A typical day starts around 9 and ends around 6. I learned a lot about data analysis.
I feel relaxed working here. You get the chance to talk to your manager any time. Their doors are always open.
Co-workers are nice and supportive. I can get help from them anytime.
The hardest part is to learn new skills and use them to solve problems. That is also the most enjoyable part of this job.

Challenging and interesting work but lack of leadership and strategic guidance leaves this being a poorly run company
client service (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAOctober 20, 2013
The CEO does not have a clear strategy of where the company should be going and is most likely trying to get out. Top leadership is unable to control turnover and doesnt run itself as a mature company but more like a 5 person startup. Lack of communication from up top leaves everyone below hanging.

Great place to start a career
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAAugust 13, 2014
comScore is an excellent place to begin learning about research and the online ecosystem, whether it is advertising, marketing, sales, pricing, or more. comScore rewards hard workers, but often employees leave as there is little retention effort put forth by the company. Overall it was a great experience and an ideal place to launch into the next steps of my career.

Learning experience
Software Engineering Intern (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 10, 2015
As my first job in U.S.A, it was a great learning experience that taught me a lot about the know how of the corporate world. It gave me the platform to get first hand experience in .NET development and also develop interpersonal skills by interacting with a team. Extremely friendly work environment with great mentors who taught with great interest.

horrible
Former employee (Former Employee) –  Reston, VAJuly 10, 2013
If your looking for a job that requires you to be on call 24/7, weekends , and holidays then this is for you. Management does not treat their employees well. They expect everything and give nothing back. They even give you grief and hardship when you need to take personal time. Do not waste your time.

Digital Data Analytic Intern (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 25, 2015
It's a cool company having smartest people and to work there you must possess the same potential. Moreover, its best for those who want to work in the data analytic. You will get to learn the exact work which any analyst is supposed to learn.

The hardest part of the job
Senior Data Analyst (Current Employee) –  Reston, VAMay 27, 2015
The hardest part of the job is to manage several different tasks at the same time, some of which are dependent on other people's work.

Decent place to move. The benefits are very much industry standard and they do not have much of morale boasting activities. But overall a fast growing company.
