    Former Employee - Associate Solution Developer in Conway, AR

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There was a lot of flexibility in one's work/life schedule, and the pace of work could be handled by pretty much anyone.

    Cons

    Lack of challenging work, and it felt like you weren't really rewarded for taking on extra responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce staff, invest in the younger work-force, and reward staff instead of their managers for challenging projects getting completed.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance includes working from home

    Cons

    Layoffs are common creating an unstable work environment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of hiring new employees in departments not experiencing a layoff, move people from departments that are laying off to that department.

    Former Employee - Director, Product Management in Conway, AR

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn and grow
    Incredible relationships
    Flexible culture

    Cons

    Lack of trust - west coast mentality among new leadership
    c-level leadership gambling the entire business on new ideas while largely ignoring the heart of the business
    Associates are apprehensive and fear for their jobs so they will not be honest with leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the products and the value proposition of the company before it is too late. Pull some people with a deep knowledge of this industry into your inner circle. Focus some investment on the proven products - this lack of focus is costing the company the competitive advantage (I.e. Revenue).

    Pros

    Lots of time to work on school work

    When you do have work it does give you a good feel for what you may be going into

    Cons

    Not really a whole lot of a work for interns

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe only let certain people who do some kind of training be mentors to interns

    Politics and inability or unwillingness of leadership to walk their talk

    Pros

    Opportunity does exist to move around internally.

    Cons

    Working as a consumer data business in the age of hightened privacy concerns is less than ideal. Even though leadership says they value being challenged in the hallway, it's not advised. What they really mean is "tell us how great we're doing." A hero culture is rewarded - "Joey came in over the weekend to make sure this release got into production. Yay!" That tends to send the wrong message to employees, even if subconsciously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. It's not what you say, but how you behave. If you want perspective and employee loyalty, get out of the ivory towers and work next to the front line employees. You may learn a few things.

    Pros

    Challenging, learned a lot of technical skills, fellow employees were great people.

    Cons

    Management was terrible. Executives were "good old boys" that only took care of themselves and cut the pay of all employees by 5%. It was only after I received another job offer that they offered to give me a pay raise. Too little, way too late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you keep your workers happy, they will be loyal and work hard for you.

    Back in 2008, pay cuts were an unfortunate but necessary financial step for the company. Since then, we have reinstated those cuts and under the new management team in place since 2012, we have ... More

    Acxiom is probably the most technology driven company in Arkansas. You dig in and you can learn a lot.

    Cons

    Long hours. Let me type that again. Long hours.
