    I worked at Acxiom full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I met some of the brightest people I had the fortune to work with at Acxiom. However, the majority of those left, frustrated at the complexity of navigating a large corporate hierarchy. However, offices were good, free drinks, free bagels on a Wednesday (Foster City office) and good opportunities if you pushed hard enough. Hours were guaranteed to be long; but in return you had flexible working.

    Cons

    Team was remotely managed and uncontrolled; hard to progress unless you know the right person. Action tended to be reactionary rather than proactive - as a result, technologies easily became outdated and made difficult to repair - a significant problem in a technology company. Department overall went through a major transformation while I was there - communication and overall execution was rough and heavy handed which had a major impact on staff morale. Compensation was rare and tended to be given when employees unhappy, rather than as a reward for good work and overall, staff retention poor as a result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more time in good people management - it will work wonders and perhaps bring some pizazz back to Acxiom.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Acxiom.

    Interview Details

    Very simple phone screen and HTML/Javascript test. Nesting tables, slicing images, really basic code as email clients can't handle a lot of complex code and the CMS can't handle CSS natively.

    Interview Questions
    • Not many will throw you off if you're comfortable with basic HTML table structure and simple Javascript (switch statements, if/then, etc.).   Answer Question
