    I have been working at Infor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Has good growth opportunity if you want to work for it. Or you can stay at your comfortable level while retaining a nice work life balance. Has the benefit of working from home for most employees. Has some great teams and product to work on. As well has a great client base.

    Cons

    Have to push for what you want if you want change things. Sometimes red tape will slow progress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Development teams need to have outside distracting noise handle by the not the development team. Mentor program needs better stucture in order to grow the current employees.

    I have been working at Infor full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people I've worked with are great, everyone is ready and willing to help. If they don't know, they'll help you find someone who does.
    Infor Consulting Services management is very open and communicative. They are a pleasure to work with.
    Good work/life balance, option to work from home encouraged
    Benefits are standard for this type of company
    Plenty of good on-line training to stay up-to-date.

    Cons

    Often expected to work much more than standard hours. But, this is par for the course with US companies (at least the 4 that I've worked for)
    Basically, the same cons as any other large US based company.
    I've only worked in a small part of one division, the pros that I listed may not exist in other sectors.

    I have been working at Infor full-time

    Pros

    - Co-workers whom you would hate parting ways with.
    - Flexible with work-from-home. Good work/life.
    - Tons of products across the enterprise.
    - Truly a global company.

    Cons

    - The bonuses used to be awesome, now they're not awesome.
    - They're working on unifying the products, but long way to go.
    - Being stale. Not much in the way of promotions, at least in the same business unit. (Perhaps job switching between business units is a good idea?)
    - Internal processes (implementation, documentation....) should be bulletproofed and institutionalized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One can live and die by the moniker "world's largest start up." On the one hand, you have speed and diversity. On the other, processes/standards take a backseat.

  10. Good place to work if in US

    I worked at Infor

    Pros

    Aside from above average salary and benefits, the management tries very hard to keep employees updated on changes and direction from department level up to corporate-wide. They also don't usually just fire off emails about such information; management usually shows up in person so that Q&A can be effected.

    Cons

    Management seems to change direction suddenly and frequently. With the craziness of so many acquisitions coupled with the sudden shifts in economy and other factors, Infor seems to bend too easily in the wind, making sudden company changes. For example, following a series of lay-offs, an announcement was made that the budget had been set for the following year accommodating all current staff. One month later a group was let go; followed by another group 3 months later.

    Similar things happend with initiatives, customers etc. One day we're learning the strategy for a servicing particular client, the next day all work stops for that client with no explanation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't personally think telling staff that "you just don't know" is a bad thing. It's a good thing to include the uncertainty in announcements and plans. It enables staff to make important decisions; to take steps if they are uncomfortable with the uncertainty.

  11. Not enough management through the acquisition. The head in the sand approach doesn't work.

    I worked at Infor

    Pros

    I loved the people and liked the job and management but things went downhill after the acquisition and as a year into it chaos still reigned, I left.

    Cons

    lack of management. Couldn't get off projects because you were deemed essential while less accomplished coworkers could roll off .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start managing! Don't let valued employes find out about redundancy through updated phone lists without their names on it! Share your vision for the company.

    Doesn't Recommend
