Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

    Old School

    Pros

    If you're young and not afraid to break things, you'll do great breaking the old school mentality that is Acxiom and its lackluster individuals

    Cons

    Old school thinking (started off as Direct Mail shop) and has no intent on changing. Employee tenure is very long and that leads to individuals staying way past their prime & stale schools of thought.

    Good company

    May 2, 2022 - IT Senior Director

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Work remote is a normal part of the culture. Changing in a good way that management is more and more open to hearing what people have to say and empowering people to improve the work they do.

    Cons

    Salary is still a challenge. Particularly in IT. What Acxiom feels is the "market" is almost always 20%-30% lower then what many other companies are paying, particularly when you consider a full package (i.e. salary, bonus, stock).

    Complete lunacy

    Pros

    None. This place is a nightmare. Work to death, small pay, no promotions.

    Cons

    They only hire if you are diverse. Industry pay is well below the average. They have no idea what they are doing. A completely left leaning institution.

    Good, but only if you are in a solid business unit.

    Apr 6, 2022 - Senior Systems Engineer in Conway, AR
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Data Centers are decent. Most employees that are not in a management role are fantastic. Work from home/remote work is quite nice. If looking to work at Acxiom, ask everything you can about the business unit and its director you would be under. If the director has been in that position for more than 5 or 6 years, then you are golden. The longer the person has been a director, the better. End up in the right business unit, and Acxiom is fantastic. There are some truly exceptional people working there.

    Cons

    Electronic Arts (EA), one of the most hated companies on the planet, sent a good chunk of their middle management to Acxiom a few years ago. At the time it seemed to be for the good. However, decisions made by the previous CEO and current CIO are ignorant, at best. Middle management that Acxiom inherited from EA are clueless, arrogant and petty. People in the Conway, AR office, depending on the business unit, get steamrolled by the Austin office and its views/politics. Austin management does not care about Conway, at all. Arkansans, choose your words wisely. A large portion of the culture is liberal leaning, especially in Austin, TX. Most roles that are heavy IT related can only be hired from the Austin area, or over seas.
