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

Pros

Used to be a great company that treated its employees well and offered lots of mobility. Emphasis on used to be.

Cons

New leadership has destroyed the company culture and laid off or drove off a lot of the top talent. Politics, favouritism, and confusion define the culture now. If you don't work in NY or the Bay Area, don't expect to have any career path.

Advice to Management

1) Develop a clearer, more consistent strategy... and stick to it!
2) Value your top talent and be objective in your assessments.
3) Encourage and value professional, collegiate debate rather than punishing people who disagree with your POV

    "Once the premier shop in the industry with empowered associates, it is now a top-down dysfunctional shadow of itself."

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

    Pros

    Still a good training ground. Some good technology in and around the digital space. It just doesn't work very well. Still some pockets of really good people left but becoming very scarce.

    Cons

    The failure of leadership is forbidding. Get in, get your resume updated and get out. This is not a long term play. Revenue has been in decline for a number of years but it is the broken culture that is so difficult to endure for any length of time. It feels like an exercise in futility.

    Advice to Management

    The arrogance of top-down leadership team has no interest in advice. It is simply unwelcome. Save the effort. Get in. Get out. Don't ever look back.
