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

Pros

They were innovators and well known in the marketing services space for being the biggest and with a impressive client roster.

Cons

Due to major shifts in the marketing services industry (from direct to digital) and commoditization of their core products and strengths they have lost growth momentum. They tend to think they are the best at everything. While that was true historically, it is no longer true, however they still overprice their services even though they are at best on par with other suppliers. They want to recreate the digital space and mold it to their current offerings. It's not working and they are sometimes viewed as out of touch with reality.

Advice to Management

Read the Pros and Cons above. The paradigm shifts in marketing have left Acxiom exposed on many levels and competitors have moved ahead due to their flexibility and ability to adapt, whereas Acxiom is trying to convince the marketplace that the Acxiom way is still the undisputed best--and it's not.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility, good benefits, smart people, a sense that you're on the leading edge of something.

    Cons

    So many people work from home that there's no real sense of place or culture. The products are very intangible and so is the sense of being there.

    Advice to Management

    More "being there." Recruit people who live near company offices and bring them together at least once a week.


  2. "It's a very laid back company that offers expansion."

    I have been working at Acxiom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary for Arkansas is nice. Like to promote from within the company. Lots of room to expand your career. Laid back environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is too laid back. Some recent mismanagement has the company on a down swing, but it should recover.

    Advice to Management

    The one bad thing about every corporation, it's often about who you know. Stop the favoritism and you would get more production.
