    Pros

    The company has great potential for market dominance. Smart people. Hard working and loyal team.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Lack of concern (no communication) or recognition (raises) for employees who have worked hard and remained loyal through the tough times. Salaries are lower than industry average and goals are unrealistic based upon lack of innovation and slow to market products. Loss of great talent as of late due to lack of executive vision and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees who HAVE stayed and performed. Raises are necessary to keep talent and make them feel appreciated. Those who remain can help you hit future goals if rewarded properly. Adjust comp plans to reflect market value. You will continue to lose talented people if you don't course correct. Stick with products that customers need to run their businesses better and try not to be all things to all clients.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Historically Acxiom had great people with tons of experience. CEO has tried to dramatically change the business model so there are a lot of newbies. Overall it's a smart group of very nice people.

    Cons

    Can't figure out a growth model. Lots of promises made to The Street. Multiple strategy changes in the last 4 years including a dramatic shift away from its core database business. Database is back in vogue after determining SaaS model could not replace the revenues. Some really bad and very expensive hires at senior levels. Now a new crop is in. Tough to have confidence it'll find its way.

    Advice to Management

    New is not always better. Hire from within. There are very smart leaders who deserve a look, could grow the biz and just can't get noticed.

    I have been working at Acxiom (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the employees below the most senior levels work really hard to support our clients. I have always been impressed with the quality and work ethic of Acxiom employees. I was once a client of Acxiom. I really liked them and they liked me, so I went to work for them.

    Cons

    This company is in transformation to a company embracing digital marketing. We can't decide what to do with the core data base business. One minute we seem committed. Next minute not so much. I have had 4 managers in 6 months- lots of change. Also, the company is not very diverse - surprising given our Fortune 500 clients. I also spent several years as a manager but was never evaluated or compensated for my management skills. Crazy! Not a lot of thought given these days to career development.

    Advice to Management

    You have good people who deserve more respect! Your focus is only on the revenue. You have driven lots of good employees to our competitors and now they sell against us.

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The option to work remotely is a plus and the people at Acxiom are very talented at what they do.

    Cons

    The overall moral has been low for a long time, you'll find yourself being over worked, and there is no budget for any raises or room for professional growth.

    Advice to Management

    To improve on retention, invest in good employees who can match your core company values and offer growth within their positions.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic people and company is in the middle of the most exciting part of marketing. Does a great job delivering for clients. Very generous vacation policy and benefits.

    Cons

    Constantly under expense pressure which pressures staffing through reductions in force or low to no raises. If you aren't in the new part of Acxiom, you definitely feel it.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a path and pursue it. Invest in marketing beyond LR and AOS. Make sure you hire people who understand the business, not media.

    Pros

    Easy going ... Seem to be ahead of most corporations in the respect of allowing technology based employees work remote.

    Cons

    Stagnant pay. No annual increases. If you are a current employee and remote, check current laws for your state regarding accrued vacation .... when I left I LOST all accrued vacation time. Evaluate cost of living and provide annual bumps ...

    Advice to Management

    I believe as of this writing, manament and ownership of the IT section of Acxiom is in flux. Hard to say in what direction "new" management will take them.
