    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 Management

    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

    I really like the other members of my team and my manager. I work with very intelligent people - you won't find any dummies here. :) Very flexible work from home policy which is a huge plus. I like that the company has a clear vision.

    Cons

    I feel like I make a fair salary for my position which is good because you basically will not get any increases once you've been here for awhile.

    Pros

    Product driven strategy from excellent executive team. Open access across the company, you can get to whoever you need directly without wasting a lot of time in channels. Rapid change means you can make an impact if you stay on top of things.

    Cons

    Open access across the organization also means a degree of disorder. Rapid rate of change unsettles some people and does cause some stress. But things are settling down somewhat.

    Pros

    Flextime
    Some Work from home Opportunities
    Good healthcare

    Cons

    Tiny salary increases for employees (2%/year if lucky)
    No difference in vacation days if you're there 3 years or 15 years
    Little upward mobility
    Glass office in NYC knows little about what it takes to support software

    Advice to Management

    Reward your long-term employees with more vacation time. Provide actual salary increases.


  6. Good company, lacked direction

    Pros

    Good people with a flexible work environment

    Cons

    At least at the time there were many changes and management had a hard time organizing between developing new properties vs acquiring.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring good people and giving them more direction!

    Pros

    Work from home is a major plus with this company. Seems like 80% of the workforce is remote. Constant access to manager and coworker with tools.

    Cons

    Growing through acquisition. Leaves employees feeling like they are secondary to growth through acquisition. Not people oriented.

    Pros

    Ability to work remote (occasionally), some bright and dedicated people.

    Cons

    I worked at HQ in NYC. I consistently saw a culture where software is secondary to sales (based on company wide communications). infor is essentially a holding company for purchased software companies - companies that the major ERP players did not buy in the 2000s. Much of the software, frankly, is terrible: old J2EE and .Net apps, many of which don't have RESTful APIs. The product teams eschew the call for modernization, driven simply by the need to maintain "old" product backlog requests. Even though I worked at Infor's innovation lab (called Hook & Loop), we found product teams reluctant to adopt modern UI or backend architectures. Moreover, most of the developers @ H&L left due to product team intransigence and lack of CCO vision (the dude literally had a "get into product" paradigm shift every other week). It was often joked that we should hire actors to play the role of engaged developers as tour groups passed through to see static visual designs and proof-of-concept prototypes of non-existent software products. Unfortunately the executive team is dated, all having cut their teeth when on-prem ERP systems ruled. Not one of them has lead a cloud-based software organization and Infor is 4-7 years away from having an integrated cloud stack. This company needs technical leadership and a kick in the pants if they want to be relevant in the next 5 years. Technical innovation and vision somewhere else beckoned me to leave. And I'm happy!

    Advice to Management

    Stop soft-gloving product teams and push them to innovate in the cloud as API service providers. Also, swap-out "dated" on-prem technical stewardship with a voice that has managed large cloud-based engineering staff. Finally, as long as you remain sales focused and not technically focused, your product will never be market-leading. The street will not continue to accept the "micro-vertical" strategy much longer as smaller, more nimble cloud-first software companies continue to pore into these "niche" market verticals.

    Pros

    The people. There are some really good middle management at the company.

    Cons

    Infor promises the ability to be successful but in the end inhibits your ability to make objectives. Unfortunately the company is run by former Oracle execs so it is not a good company for sales reps.

    Pros

    Has some of best industry leading ERPs and add-on products in manufacturing.

    Cons

    Infor is deemed a group of companies rather than a single unit because of its acquisition culture. It takes 3-4 years for acquired companies to absorb Infor culture and adapt to its product guidelines (cloud enablement, common UI etc). Dont count on their immigration assistance (there are hardly any approvals on their GC LABOR/PERM petitions)
