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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Technology, learning new skills, teamwork within immediate team

    Cons

    Leadership is only focused on talent from Austin, and California. Where is leadership?

    Advice to Management

    If you would have faith in the team that built the company you would be winning again. Instead you have forced lives and families to be impacted time and time again, and unfortunately the local talent has become so complacent they don't see what is happening.

    Pros

    I began at Acxiom directly out of college and have gone from an intern to managing internal and external events. I can't say enough wonderful things about the culture, people and opportunities I have been given here. Acxiom encourages a work life balance and I truly can say I enjoy coming to work everyday. l am very proud to say I work for Acxiom.

    Cons

    I don't have any to share at this time.

    Pros

    offered a lot of flexibility, so you could work from home, make your own hours during the week as long as work was completed.

    Cons

    always seemed to be understaffed, high turnover rates, lack of communication from senior leadership

    Advice to Management

    more training and attention for middle management, huge gap between them and senior leadership.

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

    Pros

    Not many left, but the Arkansas people are great, and the flexibility in work schedule is very nice. Benefits package is very good and salary is average or better than average.

    Cons

    This company cannot figure out who they are or who they want to be. This has been going on for years. Ever since leadership and upper management moved to California, the morale, which wasnt outstanding to begin with, has taken a nose dive.
    Focus and direction shift way too often...seemingly every quarter or two. Then layoffs come - which are way too predictable for associates. Most companies have to make tough decisions that result in layoffs...but not several times a year. Clearly there is a serious problem with the management and the Board of Directors should be recognizing this too.
    Its a little sad to see the company decline this way when it has so much to offer. It just needs the right leader.
