    "Great place to work"

    5.0
    Current Employee - Human Resources 
    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - Current executive leadership team cares about the business AND the people - Great to know new parent company values Acxiom for everything we're good at; that was missing for a while from prior leadership

    Cons

    - Continued integration with new parent company (not really a "con," just a complicated process with no simple answers)

    Great remote working availabilities with really great managers and team members.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Depending on the team, work life balance can be very good.

    Cons

    Many layoffs, isolated teams doing duplicate work, good old boy leadership that affects every associate, very few opportunities for career growth, the cutting-edge 'technology' went with LiveRamp, and most of old order, aka the people that got use to the easy money of that cutting edge technology, were sold to IPG. Acxiom now lives under IPG, but without a lot of the IP that made it great, while retaining the complacent leadership and employees.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    This company used to be GREAT to work for but, with a management change, it became horrible to work there. Multiple layoffs per year - laid off employees included a huge percentage of excellent employees.

    Cons

    Did I say there were multiple layoffs per year - leading to an unhappy environment, politically cut-throat environment
