Software Developer (Current Employee)

ProsThere is never a problem taking time off. Very flexible start/finish times.

ConsFar too bureaucratic. To get anything done requires so many people and very often simple decisions take months. The most recent example was ordering a PC. It took 5 months to go through purchasing with numerous meetings debating spec then eventually ordering an off the shelf Dell taking 2 days to deliver. The cost of the PC (£900) was dwarfed by the cost of the meetings. The corporate culture fosters a lack of accountability, it is easy to pick up bad habits. Acxiom's IT emphasizes this as they look at quick fixes rather than root causes and preventative measures.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on accountability and cut out unnecessary bureaucracy. Stop and thinking about why something cant be done and start thinking about how it can be done.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
