    I worked at Neustar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay, bonus and benefits. Company has always been profitable, plenty of cash in hand, able to acquire new companies and increase revenue every year.

    Cons

    Poor technical management since 2006. Skilled technical employees were discouraged to stay with the company and demotivated with bell curve strategy on annual performance reviews etc. Too many people joined the management ranks at mid level and senior level, who introduced too many processes, cost cutting strategies, layoffs and complicated the work environment with office politics.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on strengthening the central operations with skilled and motivated technical employees.
    Reduce the number of people in the management (director, VP etc layers).
    Focus on good employee retention, allocate bigger budgets for training/better reward programs to the folks that work in operations & provide 24x7 support because you can't achieve the company's goals , efficiency & profitability without their good support.

    Pros

    people are supportive of each other, and accepting of people's idiosyncrasies. In some departments there is very little politics, and people are just focused on the work. Promotions happen regularly. Contrary to what glassdoor reports (it is really off) pay is great.

    Cons

    Extreme variation of experiences based on the department you're in. I've heard that some departments are very disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the culture. Export good culture to other teams.

    Pros

    Great people and benefits. Everyone is smart and for the most part intellectually curious. The work is interesting (statistics, consulting, project management).

    Cons

    Managers struggle to effectively manage people beneath them. My manager, who shall not be named, frequently belittled me in front of others with his/her tone and rhetoric. I was asked on numerous occasions by various observers if the way he/she spoke to me was typical... it most certainly was. This was his/her first time being allocated a subordinate employee and it was clear. I saw other managers who had an apathetic approach to managing their subordinates, and contained an overly dramatic fashion of handling clients. In all, and this being completely subjective, the way I was treated was abhorrent. Also, expect 10-12 hour days. You are usually busy the entire day, but be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Use critical thinking when allocating subordinates to managers.
