Pros

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

Cons

Far 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 ManagementAdvice

Focus 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.

    Pros

    At Acxiom you are offered the opportunity to question the status quo and work towards a better way of accomplishing the objectives at hand. There are some incredible, very high quality associates within Acxiom.

    Cons

    Acxiom is still a very 'development' driven company with a fairly short sighted focus. They have yet to truly give the marketing organization the attention it deserves in order for it to have the impact it could to the long-term success of Acxiom. Too many and too frequent reorganizations. Associates are forced to spend too much time attempting to understand how they fit within each new reorganization - and can't focus on accomplishing the tasks at hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time necessary to determine a true vision and then create a work environment that enables associates to make the vision a reality.
