    Pros

    I love the people I work with and my team...and the technology we get to work with is great. Flexible work schedule really helps out, as well as the option to telecommute, and it makes a difference in trying to balance work and life. Granted there will be days that are long and stressful, but in the tech industry it's expected. For the size of our company, I think the health benefits are wonderful and they're only improving on the benefits packages year after year. All the people that complained about pay cuts and such need to realize that it was a VOTE put out to the workers to decide if they would take a pay cut or layoff their coworkers...obviously we all took the pay cut. Now that the recession is moving out, things are picking up and business is great!

    Cons

    There can be a lot of long days/weeks/months...but the recognition makes up for it (i.e. bonuses, extra PDO, awards, etc.). The Sales team can get a little aggressive at times and sometimes make promises they shouldn't; however, with the wonderful and clever people we employ here at Acxiom, we find ways to make it work. As far as promotions out of the trenches they can sometimes be slim, but those that deserve them eventually receive them.

    Advice to Management

    Better group training opportunities would be great. Bring back playtime for the workers...we used to have all sorts of game rooms where we could blow off steam and relax between meetings, but they took away the Wii...then again, most people work from home now too. Perhaps there is a coorelation?

    Pros

    Great and talented employees who have worked hard over the good and bad years, contributing greatly to company's value and heritage

    Cons

    The current executive team lacks consistency, focus, and knowledge to run the business. Also seems to be incapable of organizing a competent and mature leadership team

    Advice to Management

    CEO needs to learn to be humble for what he doesn't know. And reduce reliance and spending on outside consulting companies to make business decisions for him, and then lay off employees for the money over spent. Need to recognize and respect the importance of business domain knowledge for his leadership team to be effective.

    Pros

    Good people that want to help. Flexible schedules. Traditional products with data and data integrity are solid. However, need to adapt quickly to changing client needs.

    Cons

    The recent changes are causing a lot of anxiety and people are leaving. Benefits are so so. The company needs a firm direction and needs to get moving. The transition to digital is taking way too long.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate accurately and get the show on the road.

    From a career best job to an embarrassment in a matter of a leadership turnover or two.

    Pros

    Great people to work with, especially the old Little Rock & Downers Grove vets. Team players.

    Cons

    Complete and utter lack of respect for the pillars of the business. Innovation is great but never cut off your nose to spite your face.

    Advice to Management

    It's up to the board now. The damage is done from the current leadership team and it's going to be a long slow climb out of the depths. Bring back the people who built the business, bring back the "team" culture and you might salvage something.
