    Pros

    The people are great. Senior leaders really care. The business is solid and the division structure is working. Acxiom and LiveRamp are a powerful combination in the marketplace.

    Cons

    A bit more process and rigor could help move decisions and initiatives along faster across divisional lines. Acxiom's division structure is just over a year old and teams are making progress in understanding how best to work across divisions, just need to ensure it continues and everyone in all divisions embrace new ways to do things.

    Advice to Management

    The big data space is complex and the Acxiom story can be too. Keep things simple and keep up the good communication.

    Pros

    The company has great potential for market dominance. Smart people. Hard working and loyal team.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. Lack of concern (no communication) or recognition (raises) for employees who have worked hard and remained loyal through the tough times. Salaries are lower than industry average and goals are unrealistic based upon lack of innovation and slow to market products. Loss of great talent as of late due to lack of executive vision and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees who HAVE stayed and performed. Raises are necessary to keep talent and make them feel appreciated. Those who remain can help you hit future goals if rewarded properly. Adjust comp plans to reflect market value. You will continue to lose talented people if you don't course correct.

    Stick with products that customers need to run their businesses better and try not to be all things to all clients.

    Pros

    - they moved to RWC last year so it's a better location

    - they have catered lunches.

    - they have great clients and focus on volume

    Cons

    - the most saddest management team i have ever witnessed. the management is cheap, inexperienced, and frequently resorts to favoritism when promoting. all of the people in senior roles are there because that have been there for three or more years and brown-nosed. if you can't do that everyday, you won't make it there.

    - no foresight and lack of discipline with their associates. they let them take 2-3 hour lunches and i always hear them yelling. many people work from home all the time and then quit without notice.

    - they hire (and rehire) people who are not qualified. they went through a lay-off once and let one of the team members go because they were viewed as a terrible performer across the whole team. then they offered that same person the same job again six months later because they didn't want to repost the job.

    - anyone who stays is the non-ambitious kind and they get promoted to boost this artificial sense of moral once people start quitting. if you want to learn from smart people, they're almost exclusively in client engineering but don't stay around for long.

    - feels a lot like being in the d-list group, where people went to this location because they were rejected by their first choice.

    Advice to Management

    hire seasoned management professionals to manage the team, not people who have been there for a long time. chances are they're not good at what they do, which is why they've been there for 7 or more years in the same role.
