    Pros

    Acxiom is being turned around to be an innovation driven company with a bright future!

    For the better part of the past decade, Acxiom was in the hands of executives who cared more about the financial veneer than what makes the company last. There have been blindly implemented cuts that decimated the associates' morale.

    The new management team has been in place for a little over 2 years. Lots of efforts to turn the mother ship around to the innovation driven Acxiom of the 1990's. Certainly not easy but is the right medicine for Acxiom. Lots of innovation driven projects again. Lots of interest from clients. Lots of new implementations for clients. Love working at the Product & Engineering team! Love my direct leader Matt Botti as well as our Chief Product Officer Phil Mui. Best team to work for in Conway!

    Cons

    There are definitely associates who are unwilling to move toward the new Acxiom. We need everyone join hand in hand to combat those unwilling to move forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep up the good work of the past 2 years! Lots of changes for the better and the big ship is turning!

    Pros

    Support flexible work schedule (although jobs are demanding), promote volunteerism in community, great associates, capable leadership, strong company values, opportunities to advance

    Cons

    Company going through foundational change, part of an industry change, so things change often, but its exciting and new so you jump on for the ride

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate legacy leaders that have old school values (must be at desk, must do 8 hours minimum in your seat, i'll feed you info as I deem fit) and push everyone to embrace more open communication. together, as a company, we can succeed quicker and easier if we all are on the same page

    Pros

    I have been able to learn a lot about various different parts of software development since I've been here. Aside from the professional development, salary, and benefits. Acxiom also provides you with the ability to work from home whenever you need. Ample paid time off and an extremely casual work environment. It is a great place to have a rewarding, minimal stress, life-long career.

    Cons

    This hasn't affected me personally, but there has been several layoffs across the company that generally seem to be poor planning/training on management's part. As well as positions for those laid of being replaced almost immediately by less experienced employees. This only furthers my belief that the lay offs are due to poor planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When considering job roles you have to not only take into account the role's purpose, but also much like in software, the role's life cycle. You have think about not only what the role will immediately provide, but also you have to plan how the role will evolve and how the skills that the employee filling that role will develop can be transferred to a new position when their current one is no longer needed. No job security is eternal, and companies have to start considering this if they want their business to be.

    Pros

    Unbelievably flexible for a large company. You are responsible for your work, but can really work at any time. As long as you are well liked by the client.

    Cons

    This is a large company so there are hoops to jump through.

    Pros

    Great people, environment
    Managers very willing to work with your schedule. You can work from home, etc
    Encourage continuing education and will reimburse college courses
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Not every team or unit has the pros listed above. You have to luck into a good team or transfer after six months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open about the companies overall progress toward goals. Too much is kept in a 'black box' at the senior leadership level. There is a feeling of never knowing when and why you might get canned.
