    Former Employee - Director, Product Management in Conway, AR
    Former Employee - Director, Product Management in Conway, AR

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn and grow
    Incredible relationships
    Flexible culture

    Cons

    Lack of trust - west coast mentality among new leadership
    c-level leadership gambling the entire business on new ideas while largely ignoring the heart of the business
    Associates are apprehensive and fear for their jobs so they will not be honest with leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn the products and the value proposition of the company before it is too late. Pull some people with a deep knowledge of this industry into your inner circle. Focus some investment on the proven products - this lack of focus is costing the company the competitive advantage (I.e. Revenue).

  11.  

    A marketing company who happens to employ technical people

    Former Employee - Software Developer III in Little Rock, AR
    Former Employee - Software Developer III in Little Rock, AR

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    For the most part, flexible. Option to work from home when (occassionally) needed was nice. Co-workers were bright and talented.

    Cons

    Most of the time, it felt like they employed developers only because they had to have someone to actually build what the salespeople promised the client. They are a marketing company... not a technology company. They also couldn't seem to decide on an org structure... changing their approach every year.
