Pros

It is a large, publicly traded company with opportunity to sell leading edge technology. There are weekly product training webinars.

Cons

It is a pressure filled atmosphere. You have to make alot of phone calls if you are in the sales department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The new CEO should keep the innovation going, and develop plans to successfully compete with other companies in the same space.

    Pros

    Great products with an opportunity to become a great company.

    Cons

    Overpriced DNS product that even management can't justify the price. Their only answer to the pricing objection is to throw 2 free months of service at the client on a "soft" contract that they count to their sales number, what a joke! Still being an employee here, I need to see a change at the top to want to stay here with the company in it's current panic mode state and looking to get rid of everybody on the bottom to justify their own jobs. The job gives you an ulcer. The management does 2 meetings a day with each other instead of being on the floor to help and assist newer reps ramping up, this is a horrible waste of time and upper management resources. The turnover rate at this company is higher than I have ever seen at another company in the Tech industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Director of Sales, something has to change. Definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results

    Pros

    The compensation and benefit packages are good at Neustar. The guaranteed contracts provide stability. The company is also good about allows and enabling remote work as necessary.

    Cons

    The downside of Neustar is a culture that is devoid of senior leadership. Executives will take credit for work of lower level people but if anything goes wrong will blame lower level employees. It is a very dsyfunctional culture with a huge amount of empire building and politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the culture of top down decision making. Also, there are so many people in some areas doing nothing but creating work. In some areas of the company, a reduction in people would actually make things more efficient. There are so many layers of management that totally stifle innovation.
