Senior Production Technician (Former Employee), Downers Grove, IL – May 9, 2013
I worked for May & Speh which became part of Acxiom in September of 1998. I left before Acxiom took over. May & Speh was a great place to work, employees could not have been treated any better than they were.
Account Manager (Former Employee), Conway, AR – May 3, 2013
Pros: great people to work with and a interesting business service.
Cons: pay, retirement, advancement opportunities
Acxiom was a great place to work in the late 1990's; after a series of bad business decisions, the company has financially struggle ever since. There were 5 years where salary increases weren't given...even if you had received a promotion.
Contractor (Former Employee), Downers Grove, IL – May 3, 2013
Pros: truly nice people
Cons: job security
The people are the friendliest, from the reception desk to security to management. I found it hard to believe there wasn't one person I didn't like. I wish I could have stayed there until I retire but they were cutting all contractors in my department.
Product Manager (Current Employee), Conway, AR – February 25, 2013
Pros: some great people, located near my family
Cons: poor compensation, having to deal with j.b. and his lack of basic itil understanding, unqualified vp
I used to love my job here. Great people, but we keep losing the best, We have a new CEO that has changed the mood in several areas of the company, but the IT/Outsourcing area of the company remains a dark place to work. The layoffs have (mostly) subsided, but good people continually leave and are not replaced. Middle management at the VP level remain – more... disconnected from the realities of running a successful IT operation. I am unfortunately not long for my job either. A dismal, dreary place to work. – less
Client Delivery Analyst (Former Employee), Conway, AR – December 10, 2012
Pros: excellent benefits, opportunities to learn if you are motivated
Cons: very little is documented
You are encouraged to learn and grow as a productive individual and a member of the team. My team leads were willing to listen, to talk with me and to help me grow. The hardest part of the job was to acquire knowledge that I didn't already possess because you are expected to hit the ground running. Help *is* available, but you are expected to be aggressive – more... and assertive in seeking it out and continuing to make use of it and to profit by it. – less
Account Executive (Former Employee), Little Rock, AR – December 4, 2012
Pros: market recognition, thought leadership
Cons: many changes in exec and company direction/mission in recent years
Acxiom is a mega-marketing services company with foundational as well as highly complex solutions. They've been going through much transition of late both from a product as well as management perspective.

Client Delivery Manager (Former Employee), Little Rock, AR – August 13, 2012
Pros: flexibility, career advancement, enjoyable work place
Cons: compensation and benefits were lacking
Acxiom was a great place to work that allowed for much flexibility in your personal and work life. I really enjoyed their methodology of if you get your job finished then you are allowed to control your own work hours and future.
The hardest part was some of the compensation cuts that happened due to the economy.
