    Pros

    The work schedule is very flexible. You are able to work from home when it's convenient. The amount of paid days off is good and the insurance is very affordable.

    Cons

    Random layoffs. Going in, they'll tell you that they don't do layoffs. They'll say they "reorganize". Don't be fooled. They have layoffs annually and no one is immune.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't fix what's not broken. Leave the selling to the sales staff. Give your associates some piece of mind that their job is secure.

    Pros

    I'm challenged to complete this section. Many of the people that are still at Acxiom are great. They have very good data. Good analytics. Big ideas. Good technology. Good exposure to F500 client base.

    Cons

    No training. No career path. No feedback - good or bad. Constant re-orgs. Attrition rate hovers from 12-15% consistently. HR is a mouthpiece that never delivers. No investment in people or technology. Company's solution to profits is to lay off. People left are doing the jobs of 3-4. Employees are often placed in uncomfortable situations with clients where technology isn't delivering and they need to dance around delivery to meet client needs. Senior management = old boy network. Elitist. They show up in many offices and do not interact at all with any of the employees who are sweating and are making things happen - making things function via work-arounds considering technological deficiencies. No diversity in employees. Very few woman or minorities in any position of power. Employees are thrown into different roles whether they have experience or not. No support for success. And if you fail, you are criticized and demoted. No integration encouraged between lines of business, yet their theme song is multi-channel marketing. Individuals are discouraged from bringing in other lines of business for client benefit b/c that would compromise the profits of that individual line of business. Just plain ridiculous. Oh and they claim to be a marketing company. Just take a look at what the messaging has been at recent shows. No consistency. And no fun. Nothing special for employees. 401k matching cut. Pay cuts for everyone too, with no criteria for attaining again. The only fun we have is employee-driven pot luck lunches from time to time. Company very rarely contributes to anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Roll up your sleeves and get dirty. Talk to the people making it happen. And commit to improvement and keep your word. Recognize your company value is tied to your talent. You ignore your talent, you ignore your opportunity. The big talk may work short-term with F500 clients, but if you don't have a team empowered to deliver, you're nothing. And another lay off won't fix the situation either. Wake up.
