    I have been working at Neustar full-time

    Pros

    The people and atmosphere are great. The recent changes show innovative thinking for long term company success. If things go to plan, the products will soon be far out in front of the rest of the market.

    Cons

    It is a long company so you don't get introduced to many people right away and it takes awhile to get to know everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to hire top talent with vision for long term company growth and success

    I have been working at Neustar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Neustar has a fantastic vision of connecting people, places and things. The culture here is unequalled - work hard, play hard! The facilities are great and the office locations are cool. You are surrounded by the best and the brightest. We work on challenging problems with the latest technologies and present so much opportunity to learn and grow. Real-time, Big Data, Analytics, Virtualization... there's fascinating work for everyone.

    Cons

    We just can't hire fast enough!

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

    Pros

    Neustar is an amazing place full of talented and uber smart people. It is fast paced and extremely rewarding to see large and small projects move through to completion. Even in a larger organization such as Neustar I feel that I am working with my close friends while we try and take over the world. I am learning a lot and feel that Neustar is the best place to extend my career path.

    Cons

    Working remotely I do not get to enjoy the amazing amenities that Neustar has to offer in their various locations all over the world.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving ahead with your planning and communication plans. It all seems to be working.

    Pros

    We are actively improving the culture, innovating and driving to have fun and accountability at the same time. Full ability to do what we need to do and support across the company to get it done!

    Cons

    We sometimes forget to put people first, but when reminded it becomes apparent

    Advice to Management

    Keep holding the team accountable and providing incentives and excitement. Over communicate. There are such great things happening, don't forget to share it!

    Pros

    Neustar is very employee focused, driving their decisions largely based on employee feedback. This company truly cares about their employees and it shows as Louisville has been ranked Top Places to Work for 3 years in a row.

    Cons

    Neustar is ever changing and its hard to see down the road past 1 year here.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining senior leadership

    Pros

    Genuinely industry-leading technology with tremendous opportunity for growth. Truly intelligent, passionate, and decent people. A renewed focus on innovation and carving out a unique technology brand.

    Cons

    As with any technology company in transition, the processes are soft. Requires disciplined management who can manage across departments as much as within departments.

    Advice to Management

    Make very concrete non-numeric objectives for your teams. Think beyond that quarter, and be obsessed with continuous improvement.

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

    Pros

    - Long established history
    - Strong Data Analytic History
    - Willingness to try new initiatives and disrupt the status quo
    - Great leadership continually being recruited
    - The company culture is great. People work hard, play hard, and laugh a lot
    - I am new here, so things can change, but I honestly think this is the best place I have ever worked...I see lots of opportunities, good culture, and exciting times ahead!

    Cons

    - Change can cause discomfort for some. This is a place that is good for those willing to embrace change.
    - This is a fast paced global company. The hours will not be typical 9-5 as you have to communicate with your partners in the business all over the world. Those who want a 9-5 job may have difficulty being successful.

    Advice to Management

    I think the leadership is open and honest. The communication to the company is great. Keep doing what you are doing!
