    I have been working at Acxiom full-time

    Pros

    Good people, relaxed work environment, decent benefits

    Cons

    Too many layoffs, shaky job security, underpaid workers

    Advice to Management

    Find a new business model! The cycle of layoffs and hiring is terrible for morale and efficiency.

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time

    Pros

    Excellent working environment, excellent work-home life balance, excellent benefits and working conditions. Overall I think Acxiom is an outstanding business to work for.

    Cons

    I can only think of 1 con in working here and that is remembering to have my badge with me at all times. But security can't necessarily be seen as a con, can it?

    Advice to Management

    Keep expanding in the way we have been thus far. Acxiom is growing and will leave everyone else behind if they don't get on board!

    Pros

    - they moved to RWC last year so it's a better location - they have catered lunches. - they have great clients and focus on volume

    Cons

    - the most saddest management team i have ever witnessed. the management is cheap, inexperienced, and frequently resorts to favoritism when promoting. all of the people in senior roles are there because that have been there for three or more years and brown-nosed. if you can't do that everyday, you won't make it there. - no foresight and lack of discipline with their associates. they let them take 2-3 hour lunches and i always hear them yelling. many people work from home all the time and then quit without notice. - they hire (and rehire) people who are not qualified. they went through a lay-off once and let one of the team members go because they were viewed as a terrible performer across the whole team. then they offered that same person the same job again six months later because they didn't want to repost the job. - anyone who stays is the non-ambitious kind and they get promoted to boost this artificial sense of moral once people start quitting. if you want to learn from smart people, they're almost exclusively in client engineering but don't stay around for long. - feels a lot like being in the d-list group, where people went to this location because they were rejected by their first choice.

    Advice to Management

    hire seasoned management professionals to manage the team, not people who have been there for a long time. chances are they're not good at what they do, which is why they've been there for 7 or more years in the same role.

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

    Pros

    Home base employment is great. Work online 100%.

    Cons

    Salary may be below average for the position. Social interaction is null.

    Advice to Management

    Having the opportunity to wok online is great incentive for positions like DBAs that work so many extended hours because give you the opportunity the still be around the family and handle better work schedule.

  7. Good company needing direction

    I have been working at Acxiom (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great products and people. Operate much like a consulting company, which provide you with many experiences with many different clients, making for a challenging and entertaining work.

    Cons

    Confused on the direction of the company. Have made some tactical errors that have caused revenue to be impacted. Layoff over the years has caused a work environment that is difficult to deal with at times.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the hire / fire cycle of layoffs. Stop repeating the same mistakes because of all of the reorgs that cause managers to have to relearn what another person has already learned... let's grow as a company and move forward.

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

    Pros

    For Arkansas, Acxiom has been a great employer for many working here. The average tenure here must be at least 10 years. Also very good is the flexible working conditions -- from home, flex schedules, time off, ... Friendly (mostly) people working in the company.

    Cons

    There have been many oscillations in Acxiom since the current CEO and CFO (both based in California) took over. Every few months, there seems to be a surprise : major leadership changes, company direction changes, layoffs, ... The frequency & magnitude of changes is creating a perception that there is not a competent captain steering the ship. What got me to write this review is a recent announcement from the CEO to "plan a fantastic celebration" of a sales leader "as he joins the ranks of Acxiom alumni". Whoa! This is a pretty harsh & humiliating way to let someone go. The sales leader was well respected for many years here.

    Advice to Management

    Is the board paying attention to what the CEO and CFO are doing -- in grinding away shareholder values month by month?

    Pros

    Competitive Salary and Benefits; Flexible work environment

    Cons

    Current leadership promotes revolving door - don't expect a long term career. Limited opportunities for growth/promotion; under values existing experience & expertise.

    I worked at Acxiom (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people Decent benefits Work from home allowed on most teams

    Cons

    Low pay Higher ups believe employees outside of California are not as intelligent/capable Yearly layoffs CEO thinks laying people off is amusing (laughed in meeting about layoffs) New policy on no rehire after two separations even if company laid you off

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your employees and invest in them
