Pros

Great leadership attempt in modernizing a dinosaur data company in the last 2 years!

Recently, Acxiom has been innovating and making waves in the industry! Great job to the new leadership team for really transforming a dinosaur company to the modern era. There are a lot of great products & ideas coming out of Acxiom. Really admire Scott Howe, Phil Mui and team for leading a lot of these modernization efforts. Great job.

Cons

The traditional culture. There is a huge holdout of "traditional" Acxiom employees who are resisting the change -- and are blaming those newer members of the team for "not understanding" how Acxiom *should* work. They are hiding behind the Arkansas name for saying that the newer Acxiom based in California is abandoning Arkansas Acxiom. Did not seem like what I am seeing, and I am here in Conway AR. Many talented Arkansas employees are heavily involved in leading the change. What is shameful is that the *less talented" Arkansas folks are hijacking the conversations about California versus Arkansas & creating fissures to undermine the leadership. Why are they doing this? My guess is that they are hoping to return back to an all-Arkansas southern data company -- which is what got Acxiom into all kinds of trouble in the last decade.

Advice to Management

Make a strong statement that Acxiom is no longer just a "southern" company based in Arkansas but a global company focusing on innovations -- and give kudos to those who are trying to transform the company to a modern tech company.

    I worked at Acxiom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freebies, office culture is on the laid back side of things, there's great benefits and tons of vacation time, and easy commute to the office.

    Cons

    Very very very poor leadership with upper management, and it is easy to become over-looked in a supportive role.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time out to work with EVERYONE on your team. not just account directors and account managers.
