What don't you like about working at Acxiom?
"When the leadership changed and the way Acxiom did business changed, it became a culture of change for the sake of change. Every time there was a re-org, there was a layoff. In my 13 years at Acxiom I survived about 10 layoffs and 3 re-orgs. When the management and sales teams cant hold on to the accounts, they keep their jobs, but the teams doing the work are forced to find other jobs within the company of face a layoff."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"Try harder to find new teams for misplaced workforce. When the team I worked for lost the account (Acxiom was underbid), the team members were told to find other jobs within. I found another job with another team and then walked in one day to find that my team members all were re-assigned and again I was left to find another team. I found another team, again, but the work just wasn't there. My new team leader arranged for a phone meeting one day. I was sitting at my desk when I get approached by my team leader (whom I had never met) and he introduced himself and asked if I could meet with him in one of the private conf. rooms. I was getting let go. After 13 years of hard work for this company, they let me go."
