    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Garnered some experience working with Big Data

    Cons

    As the title said.. over 5 years and salary only increased by 6000. Senior management turnover was frighteningly high, creating an environment of distrust, fear and instability.

    Advice to Management

    Fire your CEO

    "Room for improvement"

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and helpful. New offices.

    Cons

    Upper management is slow to decide business model realignment and resource commitments for innovation. Pathway to ultimate vision is not clear for folks on the bottom, doing the work, which leads to excessive meetings because no one knows/understands the interim plan while the final solution is put into place. For the most part, work culture is pretty complacent. Processes don't really exists, documentations are lacking and there are many knowledge silos (hence many meetings). There's also a lot of politics and it gets old pretty fast.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time

    Pros

    I had great opportunities to learn and really good people to work with when I worked there. The focus on keeping up with client challenges and technology helped give me paths to take to grow.

    Cons

    The company started with one focus area and now seems a bit lost on what it's supposed to be doing. This isn't Google or Apple, yet management seems to want it to be. That's not what clients are paying for.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to the mission as it has existed before you got here. Growth in new direction is good, but has to be tempered with the expertise you have and what clients want to pay for.

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.
