    Current Employee - Entry Digital Content Specialist in New York, NY

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Free munchies.

    Cons

    You get paid less compared to similar companies.
    Most people have to perform repetitive and meaningless tasks with the expectation of enthusiasm for the company's 'culture' and 'values,' which are mostly pointless ideals enforced by mediocre middle management that are also very basic. Lots of basic and boring types, with few edgy exceptions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so mediocre and vacuous.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    There was a lot of flexibility in one's work/life schedule, and the pace of work could be handled by pretty much anyone.

    Cons

    Lack of challenging work, and it felt like you weren't really rewarded for taking on extra responsibilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce staff, invest in the younger work-force, and reward staff instead of their managers for challenging projects getting completed.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Conway, AR

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity does exist to move around internally.

    Cons

    Working as a consumer data business in the age of hightened privacy concerns is less than ideal. Even though leadership says they value being challenged in the hallway, it's not advised. What they really mean is "tell us how great we're doing." A hero culture is rewarded - "Joey came in over the weekend to make sure this release got into production. Yay!" That tends to send the wrong message to employees, even if subconsciously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example. It's not what you say, but how you behave. If you want perspective and employee loyalty, get out of the ivory towers and work next to the front line employees. You may learn a few things.

    Acxiom is a company without a culture.

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

    Pros

    The few good people left in the company

    Cons

    Overall weak executive leadership with the exception of the CFO. The CRO has hired 3 new VP's and there has been little communication on their plan or any plan for that matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Board needs to make changes ASAP1

    I worked at Acxiom

    Pros

    - Lots of great people to work with
    - Great Assets to be developed on
    - Employees are loyal
    - Good work/life balance

    Cons

    - Senior leadership doesn't know how to run a company or have any vision
    - Benefits are just ok at best
    - With lack of leadership comes frustration from employees, tough to get things done
    - Treat employees like numbers and don't value their abilities

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for a shift in leadership, find and promote leaders who know what they are doing in the industry, take a vested interest in their knowledge and abilities, get to know your employees and what they can provide to the organization.

    Option to work from home in certain positions for things like inclement weather, appointments, sick kids, etc.

    Get back to open lines of communication between management and associates.
