    I have been working at Infor

    Pros

    Most employees work from home and management gives you lots of freedom to do what you want to get the job done. Benefits are nice with 401K match, medical, dental, vision, etc.

    Cons

    Mid Level managers are all vying for positions. Unprofessional management that curses at employees. Minimal training and minimal support. Processes are outdated - especially for a company trying to be a Saas company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    C-level should place initiatives on the board to become a more cohesive company. There are too many small companies that have been acquired all operating in their own bubble. Provide some change management.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, very flexible work schedule, up-and-coming feel to the company, stretching technology envelope. "The largest start-up in the world."

    Cons

    Huge company made up of several acquisitions. Always in a state on integration of complex different products. Lots of red tape for everything. Company is always very tight with expenses, like a continual travel ban unless directly with a client. Makes it tough because of the distributed nature of all the teams. Low yearly merit increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tout all the money Infor is making and then not share the profits. Yearly merit increases are meager. Allow for more raises for excelling employees. Usually someone has to get a job offer from another company in order to get a raise, and half the time they end up leaving. If the company is doing so well, reward those that are contributing without them having to hold a gun to your head to give a raise.

    Pros

    Infor really values pros who can step in and deliver from day one without a lot of supervision.

    Cons

    You really have to be comfortable with a lot of self-motivation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure employees know what the top three strategic goals are for the company annually so that each functional area can connect team and employee behaviors to these goals.

    Pros

    Sizeable organization where you can explore opportunities in many different verticals and numerous technolgies. The Infor people you work with on a day to day basis are great.

    Cons

    High stress environment, restrictive financial management policies, bonus comp plans are unattainable. Org is so flat that you are expected to do everything your self.Size of the company makes it difficult to determine who to call for what. Forget searching the employee website- useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you wnat to attract and maintain the best people to staff your consulting projects, comp plans need to have a path to pay-out. The market is picking up and so expect a lot of attrition since people will migrate to where they are loved and compensated. Trying to go pulblic is drving the company into the dirt. Feels like CA over and over again.

    I have been working at Infor full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    They have a very good time-off policy. Work-life balance is fine, and many of the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    It seems there are serious lacks in business processes which should be standard across the organization. For example, recruiting/hiring is a VERY long process. Performance appraisals is a VERY long process. Merit awarding might happen, you won't know until it shows up on your check. It seems that mid and lower level managers have little if any influence, or the managers are simply not trained in managing people.

    Pros

    Generous paid time off and holiday policies. Pretty good benefits. Variety of resources devoted to remote working possibilities. Potentially going public soon.

    Cons

    Changing company identity - many, many acquisitions. A lot of turnover on the sales side so questions about stability and long-term outlook.

    Pros

    You can do whatever you want, and nobody cares. I don't know if this is actually a pro as many of use would like to feel like we are making some sort of contribution during our lifetime in our careers instead of simply sliding by doing absolutely nothing.

    Cons

    Same as above, nobody cares. Due to a completely broken down merit system, whatever position you were hired as will also impede you ability to make a decent salary since raises are a joke and non-existent. Most years management will completely skip the review process. Maybe Infor will eventually realize this since it's most peoples strategy to leave and then come back to be rehired and paid at a reasonable level.

    Senior management seems to have no idea what is going on below them. I have worked on projects where I have heard senior management, including the CEO Charles Philips, make claims about what the application can do, when in actuality those claims are completely false. Either they are being fed misinformation or they choose to be delusional. You're also lying to your customers. This is bad.

    Absolutely incompetent workers are allowed to continue working and are often praised by management when all they do is simply pretend they are hard workers. This goes back to the review process. If people who do nearly nothing except talk like they contribute are praised so much, what is the incentive to work hard?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a reason you're referred to as "the largest startup" since you can't quite figure out how to actually get going. Stop being delusional and learn what you current products are capable of and come up with a decent plan forward instead of living in your own pipe dream.
