    Pros

    They were innovators and well known in the marketing services space for being the biggest and with a impressive client roster.

    Cons

    Due to major shifts in the marketing services industry (from direct to digital) and commoditization of their core products and strengths they have lost growth momentum. They tend to think they are the best at everything. While that was true historically, it is no longer true, however they still overprice their services even though they are at best on par with other suppliers. They want to recreate the digital space and mold it to their current offerings. It's not working and they are sometimes viewed as out of touch with reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the Pros and Cons above. The paradigm shifts in marketing have left Acxiom exposed on many levels and competitors have moved ahead due to their flexibility and ability to adapt, whereas Acxiom is trying to convince the marketplace that the Acxiom way is still the undisputed best--and it's not.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility, good benefits, smart people, a sense that you're on the leading edge of something.

    Cons

    So many people work from home that there's no real sense of place or culture. The products are very intangible and so is the sense of being there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More "being there." Recruit people who live near company offices and bring them together at least once a week.
