    Pros

    GREAT coworkers, good benefits, good office perks, profit share.

    Cons

    Management is constantly changing, no formal training/onboarding program, no clear career paths, culture STEEPED in alcohol, HE works in the company interest, most department managers don't know much about the department they manage.

    Advice to Management

    Stay long enough to develop the workforce, not use them as stepping stones to the next level of your career. Hire managers with experience in the area you hire them into, stop the favoritism.

    Pros

    Benefits
    Great Colleagues
    could be about it...

    Cons

    Unstable database
    Innovation preached, but software still stuck in the 90's
    Departments still in silos (even though collaboration has been talked about for years)
    neustar still not a household name
    favoritism is rampant -- work your tail off and still nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Be straight with your employees about the GGC takeover. You already misled people with the supposed company "split".

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

    Pros

    Database of phone #s to improve match rates.

    Cons

    Sales org is a mess - ridiculous training program and ongoing classes. Would be okay for sales 101 but not for those with any intellect or experience. Sad when most of the sales team is much better in front of clients than the team leaders.
    Winwinwinasone - as far as I know everyone has already left high school and college - this is a joke and insulting to have in adult meetings
    Sales is deluded - an ops person as a leader and frick and frack as overseeing the everyday sales org - neither of which could sell lemonade to their mothers.

    Advice to Management

    Be afraid when Golden Gate finds out the truth about this company - they will need lots of axes.

    Pros

    If you want plain job in IT and get market salary - this is a possible place to be

    Cons

    Lame and inappropriate tech stack used to develop, no way management wants to change it.
    After leaving the company I had to study a lot before getting to the next job because company was way behind the modern stack.
    Management's job security is the only their concern.

    Advice to Management

    Leave

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

    Pros

    Had the privilege of working with some incredibly talented engineers. Couple of the folks on marketing services were very structured and detail oriented. Other teams had talent but sometimes lacked focus.

    Cons

    Very top down management style. Incentives are in the wrong place. Terrible work life balance. Most are not excited to work here. Everyone is overworked because of too many layoffs, therefore severely understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    More communication bottom up and top down. Stick to your goals without constant shifting. Remain calm and make a solid plan instead of bleeding fear and chaos into teams.

    I worked at Neustar full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits.
    From the director level down Neustar has talented hard working employees.
    Free food and snacks out West.

    Cons

    No free food and snacks in the East Coast office.
    Uncertain future with the pending the pending acquisition by a private equality company.
    All the new VP's are hired out West, because the Neustar executive management feels the East Coast has zero talent.
    Horrible, and I mean horrible executive management.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth. You guys lied about the company split. Your only goal is to loot the company for your personal gain.
