    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Free bagels, soda and coffee.
    People are generally nice to each other.
    Lots of PDO time.
    You get to work with a lot of fortune 500 clients that you can put on your resume.
    Casual work environment.
    Lower management is good to work with and receptive to feedback.

    Cons

    The content specialist position is called "entry level" but has no career path and does not give you any meaningful skills with which to advance your career. The level promotions that you can get (level 1 2 and 3) are basically meaningless except for a modest pay raise and have no value outside the company.

    The senior management seems to be in a cost-cutting and outsourcing mode. They laid off all of the developers in California and moved that dept. to Asia. They also cut some in New York. Who knows if they will cut campaign services? I think Acxiom Digital is being squeezed by Acxiom the parent company, and there will be continued pressure to cut costs at the expense of the employees.

    If you give your notice that you are resigning no matter how far in advance you lose ALL of your PDO time and are not compensated for it. So if you work here, take all your vacation time before you quit.

    Acxiom is #12 on the list of worst places to work in America on glassdoor.com.

    Do not work here for more than two years unless they offer you a real promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Real technology companies value their employees and talent. If you cut pay, benefits and outsource the better jobs, you send the message that your employees are not valued.

    Pros

    The work schedule is very flexible. You are able to work from home when it's convenient. The amount of paid days off is good and the insurance is very affordable.

    Cons

    Random layoffs. Going in, they'll tell you that they don't do layoffs. They'll say they "reorganize". Don't be fooled. They have layoffs annually and no one is immune.

    Advice to Management

    Don't fix what's not broken. Leave the selling to the sales staff. Give your associates some piece of mind that their job is secure.
