    I worked at MarketShare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    MarketShare Neustar is the pioneer of the marketing measurement industry. You will have exposure to the best minds in the business as you work with Fortune 500 companies. By far the smartest people I have worked with across the board.

    Cons

    Challenging work requires effort with tight deadlines. You can't go through the motions here.

    I worked at MarketShare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Do you enjoy "taking on more responsibility" from project managers who don't want to do any work? Do you enjoy having management jump into a presentation at the 11th hour to demand contradictory changes be made? Do you enjoy feeling like you work at a different company based on what VP you work under? Do you enjoy being asked to do your project manager's job with no thanks or recognition? These are just a few of the "pros" you can look forward to at Neustar MarketShare.

    Cons

    There are small pockets of smart, hard-working people at what's left of MarketShare after being purchased by Neustar. However, most of the people left in "people manager" roles are only there because they can coast through their day-to-day with little effort and can't get an equal paying job anywhere else. You will spend the majority of your time working on things that will only be relevant to the process internal to this company, so I hope you like building excel templates. VP's step into presentations to give inconsistent feedback and dictate things like what colors you are using in charts and graphs. To get promoted you need to have buy-in from all VPs, but working under each of them feels like you work for a COMPLETELY different company. You'll likely work under people who "work from home" once or twice a week and have a laundry list of excuses for why they aren't in the office, assuming they even give you a heads up. The culture is toxic, lazy, and demotivating.

    Pros

    Great culture, team, market position. Best analytics solution in the industry objectively.

    Cons

    It was seriously crazy that Neustar didn't try to keep the founders and Ivan when they left after the acquisition. They were the heart and soul and had the right vision for the products, were deep with all of our clients at the C-Suite. The Neustar people don't understand our offerings (STILL) - and are being led by the Targus team in DC unfortunately.

    "MarketShare"

    2.0
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at MarketShare full-time

    Pros

    I think Neustar has worked to perfect the product since I left.

    Cons

    A stressful environment when I was there. I have talked to a couple of talent employees you left the company recently and the environment is still too stressful and toxic.

    Pros

    Great work environment with smart people. Good analytical and client facing experience.

    Cons

    Long hours, and the quality of training is highly dependent upon your manager (People Manager). If your Supervisor/Manager is not the type of person who can teach others well, you are headed for some difficult times due to the fact that any training material provided is of little use. Management is distanced from day-to-day.
