    Pros

    Sales floor is filled with talented professionals.
    Operations is very sales focused

    Cons

    Sales managers are unprofessional. Favoritism is a huge issue. If you don't go out and party with the managers you will not receive leads, office placement, promotions, etc....
    Pay is far below average
    Every month is a probation month
    Quotas are a number that is hoped for, not a realistic number.
    Sales is moving to a call center attitude, pay a lot of people as little money as possible to answer phones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to your front line employees. The sales staff pays your salary, treat them as such.

    I have been working at Neustar

    Pros

    Tons of opportunity for those not afraid to ask. Innovation and creativity are welcome and encouraged. Vacation package is excellent. Flexibility can be great dependent upon group. A great company for those who see opportunity for leadership in their roles (no matter the role).

    Cons

    Promotions are hard to come by and raises are harder - not impossible but difficult. Company is shifting towards being proactive and strategic thinking, and sometimes that creates a difficult working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course on innovation, continue to work on transparency. Embed openness as a way of life. Increase autonomy. Hire the best, and trust your employees. Really dig in and get behind new programs - write articles, do talks, show examples.
