    Neustar is the coolest company nobody's ever heard of, because it just works.

    Demand Generation (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat support all the way up the technology ladder. One e mail will get you to the expert for assistance. Keep your eye on Neustar they have a platform to run your marketing automation as well as the data that fuels it. Add in the underlying routing and addressing databases that provide the fuel.

    ConsIf you fail here it is your fault!!

    Advice to Senior ManagementStay on the path for the future for Neustar you are doing a great job. Have a brand. It’s a missionary sale. Get more feet on the street and the phone. Keep up the data and platform capability it will and has amazed clients.

    Great work environment with flexibility for innovation.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Prosbenefits, ability to work on projects, office culture, compensation, management seems to genuinely care about their employees

    Consthe company seems a bit rocky at times, there's lots of restructuring, but in the long run it seems as though NeuStar holds a positive future and changes are actually for the better

    Great Company for Great People

    Telecom Engineer (Current Employee)
    Sterling, VA

    ProsGreat total rewards package to include base compensation. Neustar is going through changes, as ALL GREAT businesses do and they're doing what they feel is best for the company to be successful over all by shifting their key product focus.

    *As a note to all the negative reviews I've seen from "current" employees, if you don't like working at Neustar... LEAVE!. :)

    ConsLayoffs, but what's a Great company without change?

    During changes, a company can sometime panic and not finish what they start. Though the act of not completing a task is a con, I do believe that being optimistic about the way we do business is going to be very rewarding in the end.

    Internally, career advancement is somewhat challenging as it can be confusing, but through collaboration I'm confident that things are going to SOON.

    The atmosphere in Sterling is somewhat DEAD as if coming to work drains them, this is extremely bad since it's the headquarters and all of the other sites are full of life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAsk those doing the "dirty" work their opinions on improving services and products, AND LISTEN.

    High-growth company with a bright future

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat career and growth opportunities, can help shape the future of the company and the industry, awesome people to work with, professional but relaxed work environment, get to do highly valued, impactful work, lots of change happening which is exciting to be part of

    ConsThings move fast - which some people like and other don't, but it's necessary given the transformation we are trying to make - we can't win by doing the same things the same way

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more accessible, communicate decisions and the why behind them

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's Been a Great Joy

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Sterling, VA

    ProsNeustar has a world-class team of technical and business experts. In my opinion, no one is better at telephone numbering in the world and the expanding business of information and analytics will provide top-line growth for years to come.

    ConsIf you are looking for a massive company with cushy retirement benefits at the staff level, it may not be the place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI admire the great work that you are doing.

    Great company to work for. Been here 5.5 years and plan to stay much longer!

    Professional Services (Current Employee)
    San Diego, CA

    ProsThis is the best company I've worked for. The benefits are amazing and Neustar cares about our health and wellness by sponsoring many health related events. Compensation is competitive and the bonus structure is great. I love who I work with. Everyone is very friendly and everyone seems to get along. My position is very flexible in terms of telecommuting and hours which is great. While being at Neustar, I've moved up 4 positions allowing me to continue to drive success and be gainfully employed.

    ConsThis is a very sales focused business and if you aren't in sales, some meetings can be boring and seeming irrelevant to your daily duties.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

    Amazing people/culture and incredibly gratifying work!

    Human Resources (Current Employee)
    Sterling, VA

    ProsThe culture and people are hands down amazing. I am genuinely excited to come into work everyday because the team I work with is such a joy to be around. We motivate and support each other, and it feels like we have been friends for years. Compensation package and benefits are a huge pro, as well as the workplace itself. The work is challenging, but rewarding. Work/life balance is another pro. The managers and leadership are extremely receptive and understanding when personal issues arise and work must take a backseat. I am extremely happy here and can't wait to see what the future has in store for Neustar!

    ConsSometimes the upper management isn't as hands on as they need to be - but this is true for any growing organization. Things may seem unorganized sometimes because the company is changing and evolving - and those who can't keep up and aren't open to change are left behind. This is a NATURAL process in any growing business.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTouch base with your teams more frequently; it would be nice to know that senior leadership genuinely cares about the smaller projects and tasks we are working on.
