    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.

    Seemed like a great place to work when I started, but everything seemed to fall apart after a few months.

    Pros

    - Pleasant office environment
    - Flexible work from home policy
    - Efficient online training programs
    - Orientation week at Alpharetta, GA HQ
    - Generous benefits, including 3 weeks paid vacation in your first year
    - Current generation of technology and tools to use in your work

    Cons

    - The company has been growing through acquisition of several other companies and the transition has been difficult
    - There was a disconnect between executive management, middle management and other employees
    - Approximately 650 of 9,000 employees world-wide have been laid off since 2008
    - Efficient online tools inherited from acquired companies were replaced with inferior software from other acquired companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executive management team needs to make the company more cohesive. There is such a disconnect between levels of management and between departments.
    By the time I left Infor, there was a rampant sense of hopelessness.
    Former employees expressed relief after leaving the company.

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

    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.

    Pros

    There seems to be a lot of flexibility with regards to taking time off. There are a lot of opportunities for travel both within North America and globally as well.

    Cons

    This company was built through acquisitions and as such, employees have come to expect layoffs as a regular business practice. This mentality has been worsened by mass layoffs due to the current state of the economy. This has resulted in a lot of dissatisfaction among employees, who only seem to stay because of the prospect of getting a layoff package. Senior management does not do a very good job of communicating their direction, leaving employees with a great deal of uncertainty.
