    I have been working at Neustar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Making major changes in the industry, the new Chief Data Officer and new Chief Marketing Officer look like all stars, CEO has courage to make some bold moves which are paying off. Strong partnerships to take on a space which needs a lot of work and has a lot of opportunity.

    Cons

    Low brand recognition, getting better but not yet a name people are going to instantly recognize.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring all stars, talent is a big piece of what is driving this company forward

    I worked at Neustar full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, some real talent, lots of capital. If you like to spend 85% of your time on politics, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. People that perform will not last long due to others being envious, literally saw execs throw someone out that doubled revenue over political infighting. SFO office on average refreshes its staff every 12 months. Louisville is a happy bubble in the company, East coast is a snake-pit between the old business and the president's next new favorite flavor of the month. President lost 45% of company revenue, the biggest objective was to retain that 1 contract for 4 years & failed, the ones responsible are still there riding high on the hog. Unfortunately many more examples of dysfunction.

    Advice to Management

    Get real and stop fooling yourself you are doing well. none of your acquisitions are paying off, time for new leadership. stop looking for success from the outside, grow from within.

    Pros

    Access to the newest technology

    Cons

    Key executive management staff needs leadership training, especially in the technology areas. This company needs to decide what it wants to be when it grows up and stop giving mixed messages to its employees about the viability and stability of the company.

    Advice to Management

    communicate, communicate clearly....communicate honestly.
