Good benefits and decent compensation.
Neustar has an intriguing analytics solution set but cannot get out of its own way. The lack of leadership starts at the top but the mid-level management of the company is the real problem. Favoritism, cliques, lack of involvement, poor messaging, no hands on training, absence of maturity and a toxic environment are the cornerstones of Neustar right now. Many people I have spoken with since my departure have mirrored the same sentiments, which tells me the executive leadership has no idea what is going on below them or they know and turn a blind eye. The reputation of Neustar, at least here in the DC area, is badly tarnished and my be irreparable because they refuse to address the real problem which is the terrible work environment. I had high hopes for a career with Neustar gave every effort both professionally and personally. However, I realized quickly that I had made a bad career decision. Even then, I worked hard to change the mindset and adjust the culture but my manager had no interest in even communicating with me from the start. My last day at Neustar was my best day at the company.
