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

    Pros

    Lots of new technology, good people, solid benefits and ok salaries. If you are right out of college there is a lot to learn, but don't stay too long.

    Cons

    There is very little job mobility at Acxiom. There are a few opportunities to move laterally, but most of the true promotions are limited to those who have family or friends that have worked for Acxiom a long time. For me, I got boxed in to a job role and they wouldn't let me out of it without relocating to Austin. A place that wasn't going to have any servers, they just wanted to fill sits they were already paying for.

    Advice to Management

    Be more strategic in your financial planning and maybe you won't have to do a layoff every 18-24 months.

    Pros

    Great employee cost for benefits package, HSA contribution to high deductible plan, fair amount of PDO time, 401k matching

    Cons

    medical benefits package could have been better, but the cost and contribution to the HSA as option for the high deductible package made it worth it. Only was pricey out of pocket if you had a lot of medical expenses in the year.

    Pros

    They really try to create a fun company culture. They are working to improve their products and services to better serve their customers.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is an illusion.Even if I worked overtime, there was no way to get everything done in 60 hours a week. A lot of male chauvinists making inappropriate comments to female workers that are not well received but nothing is done about it. During several internal meetings, inappropriate racial comments were also made. Not a lot of racial diversity in leadership. Training was basically non-existent from day one, despite being requested. Glad I am no longer here.
