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

Pros

Job Security, Salary

The job is challenging and can be rewarding at times. The people not in leadership roles are great; dedicated and hard-working.

Cons

Constant corporate backstabbing and revolving door make it incredibly difficult to build a career. Leadership is nearly impossible to contact and is a bit bull-headed about making the same repeating mistakes.

Nearly zero work/life balance. You will make less than minimum wage [hourly] your first two years.

Also, the most evil corporation in the world. Buying and selling of the most personal data to enable marketing solutions.

    Pros

    Good company and operational structure. They may change processes often but at least they keep you up to date on how and when those changes will take place.
    Average compensation.

    Cons

    Day to day can become boring.
    Working in an environment where coworkers or seniors are there to take you down - not conducive to productivity.
    Growth internally is either non-existant or at snail rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The "buddy buddy" relationships you have with employees that have been there longer than most should not reflect your management decisions.
    If there is an issue, consult every party involved before making any decision.

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility of work schedule
    Ample paid days off
    Great teammates

    Cons

    Financial compensation growth is stagnant
    Lots of internal politics and bureaucracy
    No upwardly mobile career path
    Yearly layoffs, frequent pay reductions, frequent benefit reductions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acxiom needs a unified leadership team. Management footprint must be reduced. Politics and internal battles between the 3 primary organizations must end. Employees must be fairly compensated and all corporate cost reductions should not focus solely on the rank and file workforce.
