    I worked at Acxiom full-time

    Pros

    Great ideas, product is unbelievably good, timing is perfect, market is large, and vision is clear. There are so many good things about vision and timing. As well, the company is very family friendly.

    Cons

    Culturally, the organization resists change. Sure, there are a lot of pockets where this is not true but overall those pockets hit friction when others see it.

    Great place to work, people, community. Flexible arrangements such as working from home or flexible hours.

    Pros

    Flexible, opportunities to learn, good personal life and work balance

    Cons

    Acxiom has gone though quite a few reorgs and lay-offs. It is also a little difficult to advance in career at certain fields. Senior position might be as far as you can go. Salary appears lower than for the same position in similar industry.

    Pros

    Still have some good people left in the company

    Cons

    Horrible leadership. Have hired 3 consulting companies due to the fact they don't know how to run the company. CRO has ruined the moral of the company. There is no two way communication and she doesn't know anything about running a software product company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in a qualified true sales leader before it's too late.

    Was a great employer, but lost all sense of direction and tried to veer to far from successful core products

    Pros

    Work life balance and benefits

    Cons

    Poor management, many of the managers have never managed before and are very poor communicators and completely violate policies on an ongoing basis. Managers on the Product team are caught up in looking good and producing nothing meaningful. HR is poor at best and the CEO trusts all the wrong people...just because they came from Google doesn't mean they can run your company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the product team the right way, this past week all you did was get rid of more mid level team members when you should have cleaned out the VPs and Directors in Product Management. Pick a direction and stick with it based on products that earn money now, you cannot count on the promises from product that new products will make the company great again.

    Top leadership has no idea of how to make it happen.

    Board should replace senior leadership with executives who know how to make it happen.
