Pros

Ability to work virtually and to pace yourself If you can find the right people you can build some of your own solutions

Cons

Poor sales management Few metrics that are followed consistently Little strategic vision--many different directions; marketing seems scattershot and not designed to support the sales force Often it was difficult to get people motivated to help with "out of the box" thinking; if you were jusyt replicating then they could help, but very few creative thinkers in the delivery and product group A bit of arrogance from the days when they were "the only game in town"

Advice to Management

Develop a solid bench of sales managers Promote people who have a strategic vision that matches client nedds Do something about the many layers of people in Conway who seem to have responsibility for one small function and do not understand where they fit in the solution Remind people that clients are a good thing and should be cherished Rethink the professional services component; make it a part of any contract

  1. New management is forcing corporate culture shock.

    Pros

    They haven't started locking down personal internet usage yet... Great annual tech symposium funded mostly by vendors so it shouldn't be in danger of being canned.

    Cons

    In three years it went from a great place to work that was taking notes from the progressive tech employers in Silicon Valley with emphasis on getting the job done and a very flexible work environment to an "old school" business mentality where being in the office 8-5 at your desk is thought to be the most productive. Fear of being laid off or let go runs rampant; pay cuts and furloughs were said to save jobs yet the lay-offs continue every 2-3 weeks. Morale is in the basement.

    Advice to Management

    Take some advice from the retired leadership and restore Acxiom's culture or won't ever be able to distinguish yourself from any other employers and when the economy turns around you will find yourself with a severe lack of talent as other major tech employers are moving into the area.


  2. Career starter and then becomes a staler.

    Pros

    You can get some good experience quickly. The Paid Time off is great. Straight out of college I got 2 1/2 weeks of vacation plus Holidays. That was 4 years ago and i still get the same.

    Cons

    The health care benefits are horrible,Moral is super low, 401k is not matched, and you may have to take an "unpaid vacation". A job role level movement is completely worthless at the moment. I've made two level moves in the past year and all i got was more work and a $7 per paycheck raise.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard working employees. Many employees along with myself are doing more work for less money, less benefits, and less gratitude. Also revamp the Job Role level movement to actually mean something. Also move talented workers into talented required roles.
