Comscore Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Comscore is an American media measurement and analytics company providing marketing data and analytics to enterprises; media and advertising agencies; and publishers.
Rohit mentioned, "Comscore does not provide much variables to collect data in comparison to Adobe and Conviva 2. Data collection with comscore is very limited 3. Can not be used as a standalone Analytics tracking tool, instead can be used as a supporting tool for your overall Analytics needs."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"You are a commodity. They to very little to retain their good talent."
Former Employee - Client Services Director says"Executive management, close minded and clueless, treat employees like they mean nothing. No real culture or direction Unrealistic goals that are never met"
Current Employee - Software Engineer says"This company has no future direction. The managers that are still here are only holding on to their jobs while they look elsewhere."
Current Employee - Campaign Manager says"Managers will micromanage you."
Former Employee - Senior Software Engineer says"- Constant Stress, if you have a job next day - Same annual increment, for the most hard working and the worst employee of the company. - Certain leadership have been with the company for less than 1 year. They don't understand the history of the company, nor why products/systems are designed the way it is. They have been picking people to layoff. - Reorgs, that make no sense. VPs are begin asked to report to Directors. - Engineering team, is almost left with no engineers, only managers. - SVPs make a strong statements at the town-hall, next month they turn around and do the exact opposite - Lots of favoritism begin shown to some employees. - Constant layoffs (3 in 2 quarters of 2019) - No retention plans, even for essential employees. - Tech Stack is outdated"
Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer says"5 CEOs in 2 years, stock less than $2 a share now. Laying off people every month."
Current Employee - Director says"Unstable leadership Unstable finances Disingenuous leadership Lack of investment in products"
Current Employee - Senior Data Analyst says"No job security, no management. All talents have left or are leaving"
Former Employee - IT Senior Manager says"Comscore used to be a great company to work for but mismanagement has literally destroyed the company and it will surely be delisted soon. In late 2017 a new CTO was brought in and has led to disastrous consequences. The running joke was how much could he bilk the company before the Board of Directors caught on to what was happening. You never know when you will be laid off - anyone who understood the business and helped build the company has been and continues to be laid off and replaced with folks who absolutely have no understanding of the business. Essentially Director level folks have been replaced with fake Directors who are hired to simply say "yes" to whatever is asked of them. Completely unqualified replacements to save a few dollars and tow the line. The same goes for the operations. Nepotism has run amok at comscore."
Former Employee - Product says"In a market where the supply of well qualified labor is tight, why would this company be on *anyone's* shortlist? There is no upside...none to associating your name to a company that, as one investor noted, is running on fumes. If you have experience with at least one of the following: can work with big data, knows television, has digital experience, and can walk and chew gum at the same time ....you can find a job elsewhere."
Engineer (Former Employee) says"The company is on a downhill path, with no signs or work toward improvement. They hire at the start of the year and then right before the quarterly results, they fire people to get their numbers to look good. They follow the Last in First Out policy. This means that the newly hired employees are almost immediately fired. Management does nothing to boost employee morale.Flexible Time Off- but your manager tries to discourage you from taking ithuge employee turnover"
Theatrical Department (Former Employee) says"In the theatrical department: mismanagement, unlawful, manipulative and unethical behavior of the management team. The weekly schedule is posted two or less days before it begins. I (and others) were/are paid incorrectly for over a year, the issue was not fixed in a timely manner. Theatrical prints emails. This wastes company money and reams and reams and reams and reams and reams and reams of paper. I used the proper reporting channels to report discrimination and unlawful employee discipline. HR did not hold management accountable. Instead HR protected management. Unfortunately the workplace culture is not one that encourages development of its workers or ethical workplace culture even though their polices say they do. It was a hostile work environment for me."
Senior Legal Administrator (Former Employee) says"Nice employees and colleagues but management is experiencing the challenge of cutting employee salaries/eliminating positions. Company has so many management changes, eliminating staff positions, not a safe place for an employee to stay.Nice colleagues401K matching is 2%, layoffs continuously."
tech support (Former Employee) says"The Director of this department perpetuates toxicity through negligence and apathy. The people who have been there the longest are burned out and cannot communicate with normal humans. The only interaction on this overnight shift are through Teams chat. Speaking to a person is not much better. Training is non-existent, the wiki is outdated and incomplete. Questions for new-hires are responded to with snide derision and are dismissive. If you value teamwork, open communication, and camaraderie, this is NOT the place for you. If you like low wages and no social life, then this is the perfect position for you.N/aExhaustion, rage, disbelief."
Manager (Former Employee) says"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. Stay away, if you have a choice.OK if you are right out of collegeToo many to list here"
Former employee (Former Employee) says"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."
Analyst (Current Employee) says"High level executives making bad decisions, some illegal, have driven this company into the ground. While they continue to layoff the workforce on an almost quarterly basis, those high level executives still collect bonuses and receive multi-million dollar exit payments upon jumping ship."
DevOps Engineer (Former Employee) says"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.Free parking at AirportWeak 401K match"
Corporate Sales Coordinator (Former Employee) says"This company has a clear lack of transparency with regards to the career paths of new employees. It is a fun place to work with young people who are willing to help."
Senior Data Analyst (Former Employee) says"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'sYou get to work with "big name" companies; you get to work with "real time" data.No work-life balance; very cliquish; questionable methodologies/practices."
Manager (Former Employee) says"Your coworkers are sharp, capable, nice, engaging, and some of the smartest folks you'll know. Upper management, however, are completely incompetent. The company is effectively finished."
Senior Vice President, IT and Operations (Current Employee) says"It's a company hoping to find a reason to exist, as the core business continues to shrink and they search for a new identity. Until that happens, talent continues to leave."
Unknown (Current Employee) says"It’s losing its steam! Board members have no clue what they are doing! Stocks are sinking faster than the Titanic! Was great at one point but not anymore! U can’t move up, in da company. Perks are nice... but everything else sucks!"
Recruiting POC Lead (Former Employee) says"Not a worker-friendly enviroment towards the employees. Management at the higher levels has a severe problem with the truth and communication is very poor"
client service (Former Employee) says"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."
Vice President, Infrastructure & Operations (Current Employee) says"Company needs to do Organizational remodeling. Information technology needs revitalization. Infrastructure is aging reaching end of life in equipment. Interim CEO need to over emphasis on IT"
Online Media Consultant (Former Employee) says"They sell smoke, Google style company. But in reality, old fashioned structure, and old product. Not a place that I would recommend if you want to make a career. Maybe just to get some work experience."
Marketing (Former Employee) says"Great employees, lack of growth for employees with no strategic management team It is unfortunate that the company has so many great resources and just looses them because the pay is lower than other firms and the benefits are also not competitive."
Senior User Interface Designer (Former Employee) says"The company culture was young and fun. Company lacked documentation."
Senior Data Analyst (Current Employee) says"Most of the coworkers are good. Some people who have title higher than the manager has zero skill of management. No job security either. The good thing is it's very flexible here better for people with family."
