Pros

1) Good start - you can get a grip how it is to work in global organization
2) Great people to work with!
3) You won't get exposure to the newest ideas and technologies but it's always something

Cons

1) Very bad or no organization
2) Redundancy of: management, reporting, etc.

Sometimes I had impression that management is just doing random decisions.

Advice to Management

1) Better organize
2) Connect between different lines of business
3) Try to incorporate newest technologies by hiring new, active people. Currently there are just old guys left which like things like they were few years ago.

    Pros

    Reasonable PTO policies
    -Free covered parking
    -Decent free workout room
    -Small-city setting
    -Probably best suited for a recent grad, and not a mid-career transition
    -Had one good mid-level manager

    Cons

    Mixed messages about workplace flexibility (do as I say...), rampant cronyism--unsolved by the post-morgan regime, hidden layoffs. Pay below market, with few raises. Worked hard--on products, services, enhancements, etc. that were discarded.

    Advice to Management

    Dump the programs meant to disguise how bad or good things are going. Give a process a chance before ditching it. Kill the abuses of the good ol' boy system. Find a balance between real revenue generation (operating revenue aka cost cutting doesn't count!) and infrastructure building.

    Pros

    Although some people are dissatisfied with the health benefits, compared to the previous company I worked for, the Acxiom medical & dental benefits can be considered average for a company in this field. If you are single and are looking for benefits that will cover preventative care, the benefits will work well. The people I work with are great and the free sodas, bagels and fruits are good too.

    Cons

    Not too many career growth opportunities. Employee retention rate is horrible. Pay cuts, pay freeze with no end in sight and no communication about it from higher ups.

    Advice to Management

    Although money is not the most important factor in a job, there comes a point where people will need a salary that will allow them to be able to keep up with the cost of living and the associates will eventually need their salary increases. At the very least, please communicate as to when this will happen. Please realize that this is one of the main reasons if not the main reason why Acxiom has become a revolving door for associates.
