    Pros

    My paycheck is accurate. Schedule is pretty flexible. People are generally easy to get along with.

    Cons

    First, it's amazing this company has been around for 40 years, yet still lacks basic organization and structure. Second, every tiny decision must be approved by top management, no one is empowered to do their job. Third, if you are an awesome employee, you will treated exactly the same as the slacker next to you, so there's really no reason to do more than show up every day. Last, the company feels like it has no direction - leadership will come out with some edict and everyone will run around trying to align, but there's no cohesion across departments, let alone business units.

    Advice to Management

    Empower employees to do their job. Tell employees when they are doing awesome work and when they're not, and reward them where appropriate. Get aligned on strategy so the organization can have a cohesive vision.

    Conway campus is wonderful, lots of updates and flexibility plus some really great people! Salaries are "competitive" based on the location.

    Senior Leadership struggles, issues within HR and management of relationship with Live Ramp is a detriment to their reputation

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

    Pros

    Corporate policies are good. Stock options at company milestones like 3 year of service, 10th year of service, ect. The PDO benefits are really good. Overall Benefits are good.

    Cons

    For an IT employee, it is like working in a third world country sweat shop. The work schedule is like this. Work you normal day shift. Then come back and work a Tuesday or Wednesday, or Thursday night maintenance window from 11:00pm - 2:00pm. Sometimes 1 or 2 days a week. Then come back and work Sunday morning starting at 00:00 hours till 6:00am. The management is horrible. Comp time, to and far between. They have lost over 70 years of company IT experience in the last 2.5 years.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house over in IT leadership. Why is someone not watching the turnover. It should be a glaring red flag when you lose that many people and years of job experience. Shame on Senior Leaders for not paying attention to what their Directors are doing.

    Pros

    Good Perks, Benefits. Pay eh, so-so.

    Cons

    HIGHLY, HIGHLY political. Poorly led. IT feels like a start up chasing their tail. Management is non-supportive. 24/365 on call. Long uncompensated hours.

    Advice to Management

    Not worth typing advice. They are aware and don't care.

    Pros

    Data sets, remote locations, legacy position

    Cons

    No focused strategy, Highly political, Transactional based without long-term approach. Co-workers not happy.

    Advice to Management

    Better focused strategy at the regional area with execution. More detailed strategic and tactical execution needed, and more management accountability without micro management at the region level. Better talent focus at both sales and management level..

    Access to multi-platform technology. Mainframe is far from dead.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed at senior levels. Rotating door in CSuite, especially at CIO/CTO level.

    Focus on core business, value input of mid-level managers. Hold senior leadership to actionable results
