    I have been working at Neustar full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Middle management is very open. We have flexible hours and some telecommuting. No aggressive power hungry coworkers. Relaxed work environment. Not too many meetings. Agile methodology is used for software development. There is interest in constantly advancing to new technology.
    Senior management acts on employee feedback and communication between them and the employees is improving.

    Cons

    Senior management is not very transparent, although this is changing due to employee feedback. There is no clear career path. The have embraced the "open floor" office plan which is not good for all people. There are far too many products that are very different from each other, so keeping a consistent company vision/mission is impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have done a great job with the work environment. If you set your focus on setting clear well defined objectives and define a clear and consistent work environment, then employees will be happier.

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Neustar.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted via email for a screening interview. Called in and was put into a conference call with two engineers. They talked about the position and the internship program. When I told them I was currently taking sophomore level courses, the tone of the interview changed. It was almost as if they were trying to dissuade me from pursuing an internship in software development.
