    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of new technology, good people, solid benefits and ok salaries. If you are right out of college there is a lot to learn, but don't stay too long.

    Cons

    There is very little job mobility at Acxiom. There are a few opportunities to move laterally, but most of the true promotions are limited to those who have family or friends that have worked for Acxiom a long time. For me, I got boxed in to a job role and they wouldn't let me out of it without relocating to Austin. A place that wasn't going to have any servers, they just wanted to fill sits they were already paying for.

    Advice to Management

    Be more strategic in your financial planning and maybe you won't have to do a layoff every 18-24 months.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Technology, learning new skills, teamwork within immediate team

    Cons

    Leadership is only focused on talent from Austin, and California. Where is leadership?

    Advice to Management

    If you would have faith in the team that built the company you would be winning again. Instead you have forced lives and families to be impacted time and time again, and unfortunately the local talent has become so complacent they don't see what is happening.

    Pros

    I've been with Acxiom for over a year. I was hired straight out of college. It really feels like a family here. People are friendly and always willing to help out. It is exciting times right now, we are in a stage of growth. Lots of smart employees here, fun environments. Great company culture.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to some of the other companies in the area. Slow to adapt to change.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt more new technologies and invest in your employees

    Pros

    Good benefits and each location has it's own perks. Work from home options are available and some employees are home based.

    Cons

    They are stingy with pay increases and pay does not always reflect your position. The internal IT organization is awful and sucks money from the accounts to stay profitable, which causes headaches.

    Pros

    A lot of respect for each other and you will be accountable for your work. No micro-management, lots of flexibility and most importantly great people to work with in most teams. The company is in a good business and there is a lot of innovation going on working with large amounts of data.

    Cons

    Each business organization is different and you will see a lot of variation in terms of processes, tools, etc and especially in the client facing organizations, there is not much in terms of processes. Work comes up constantly and you are reacting to it. Pay is not great

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Acquired experience and new technical skills.

    Cons

    Leadership changes frequently. Many associates in AR lack sophistication and professionalism. Many have been with the company for many years, and working at Acxiom is all they know. The office culture is very casual, especially in Conway. It's extremely unprofessional, dirty, and an overall unhealthy place to work.

    Advice to Management

    The "good ole boys" exist at all levels in the organization. Some leaders lack integrity and are only interested in making themselves look good. Leaders support other leaders. HR supports leaders. If there's an issue and you need help, the best option is to leave and find a better paying position at a much more professional organization.
