    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some of the kindest, hardest working people you'll ever have the opportunity to work with. Terrific work ethic and desire to make a difference.

    Cons

    Going through a midlife crisis, which is reflected in how it sets strategy and executes on a plan. Divisions are pitted against each other, and there is a lot of redundancy in support functions, which kills productivity and creates massive confusion.

    Advice to Management

    Decide who the company is, inclusive of all divisions, and use that as the corporate strategy as opposed to one for each division. Expect and incent groups to work with each other as opposed to against each other. Develop and cultivate talent so that it doesn't continue to walk away.

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time

    Pros

    Has significant opportunity, benefits seem to match most other tech companies

    Cons

    Trying to maintain old business and create new acquisitions and yet systems are weak and feeble. Inconsistent culture across organization - some locations get daily lunch, others monthly, some associates get to work from home, other forbidden. Some associates get gym reimbursement, others do not. Lots of leadership and future uncertainty. Plenty of layoffs over the years. Male leaders reference female leaders and associates as "girls"

    Advice to Management

    Leadership need to ask themselves who are we and who do we want to be
    Leadership development
    Enhanced communications
    Consistency with respect to associates
