    Pros

    Free food, smart people, flexible, good work/life balance

    Cons

    Culture and innovation is lacking.
    Purchased LiveRamp over a year ago and internal integration is a complete mess across product, sales, and leadership.
    Please stop the 10 page CEO rambling emails. While transparency is refreshing, the key points should be focused and straightforward - not mind numbing

    Advice to Management

    Focus on areas where you can win. Align organization & silos where everyone is incentivized to sell full product suite across traditional and digital channels. Do something, anything, to help boost employee morale and company culture.

    Pros

    This is specific to Acxiom Impact (formally Digital Impact), the Email Service Provider and agency within Acxiom.

    King of data and analytics - Acxiom is a sleeping giant ready to take on the world and propel the marketing plan for any brand in it. Acxiom Impact is in a great position to execute true cross channel marketing communications by leveraging that data.

    Smart and really dedicated, multi-talented people - many have been there for several years. They work hard and know their stuff.

    Pay and quarterly bonuses are good.

    Good support teams, back office, and ethical company overall.

    Cons

    Acxiom Impact in particular is going through a painful re-brand and transformation so it is like a start up…in a bad way. Attempts to transition from email to innovative digital marketing are poor so far.
    - There’s a major old school / new school dilemma going on and it is really hard to get anything done right.
    - There’s been a lot of turnover.
    - From new business to execution, there’s not any consistent procedures and it is total amateur hour even though smart hard-working people are there.

    Most importantly, there is one leader in particular who started last year that has no experience in the digital marketing space including data and analytics, ESPs, or running an agency. He has no idea what he is doing including the simplest tasks but he works really hard to hide it.
    - goes against company policy
    - unethical
    - makes very questionable decisions
    - wastes an enormous amount of time
    - delegates most everything
    - doesn’t know what he should know
    - doesn’t remember what he said or requested
    - few things he did do are of poor quality
    Unfortunately, they are all headed for the ditch if he stays.

    Advice to Management

    It seems most the reviews in Glassdoor screams of mis-management. It is an epidemic in corporate America. This place has a really bad seed but the rest may be able to cobble this broken debacle together to make something work to get to the next level. Just listen to the smart employees, especially those who have been there and know the virtues of the company and understand the potential of where it can go. Then actually take action against it.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to advance. Hard work and good performance are really rewarded. Good communication with bosses and great relationship with all coworkers. No office politics which is really nice. Work hours very flexible.

    Cons

    None that I can think of even after 8 years.

    Advice to Management

    Smile a little more.......you're doing a great job.

    Pros

    Excellent products and great sales teams. A great place to learn and continue to be educated about database design, BI and privacy, as well as to network with enterprise corporate clients.

    Cons

    Like many large organizations the management structure is rigid and well structured, which allows for good exposure for some employees who are able to manage 'up' and 'sideways'. Any out of the box strategies are not encouraged, of course. NOT for the 'start-up' mentality.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage interaction between product groups and teams to allow for collaborative planning.

    Pros

    You get to work with some of the most talented and pleasant people in the industry.

    Cons

    Employee layoffs are quarterly; no stability. Most people don't ever see it coming. The practice of having security escort laid off employees off campus is abhorrent. This is done to employees who have stolen or are getting fired - this should not be done to good people who have given their all to the company. How can you justify treating good people this way? It is unconscionable. And it conveys to the remaining employees how very little they are valued and how expendable they are... which does not help motivation or confidence in the company.

    Advice to Management

    It is clear to employees that you do not value them, despite what you tell them. It has permanently damaged the company culture.
