    I have been working at Infor full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    I have been working at Infor (less than a year)

    Pros

    With the focus on making Beautiful Software and investing in the development is making a difference in the marketplace. Making the most of the investments through acquisition with effective integration for suite solutions helps when positioning our current capabilities and vision vs. what Infor was somewhat known for.

    Cons

    It's tough to know who the internal players are and to easily coordinate an effective sales strategy. Internal coordination and processes seem to take more time and energy than advancing the sales cycles with our prospects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline process and procedures to empower agility in the field. Keep up the focus on internal communications so we're in sync with how we're advancing

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

    Pros

    * A lot of Oracle influence that has brought new ideas, vision, structure, and credibility with Wall Street, Industry Analysts, and experts within the technology market.
    * The culture has transformed since Charles joined in 2010 (in a very positive way. Ex: Any employee can receive sales commission if they help find a deal. Janitors? Yep. R&D? Yep. Consultants? Yep)
    * Focus is on execution and rewarding people that drive change (customer satisfaction, and financial success)
    * New products launches have been well received (Cloud)
    * The talent is getting younger with more passion (look no further than the recently hired SVPs from Oracle)
    * Inspirational Leaders from Oracle are showing up that are well aligned with Duncan, Stephan and Charles.
    * The company is on the up and up.

    Cons

    * Many disparate product lines (e.g. Product roadmaps)
    * Many disparate sales teams (need more industry units)
    * A lot of legacy Infor/SSA/EXE employees are burned out. What about the IPO?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Keep doing what you are doing.

    The office in Lake Forest is in a plaza near 241 free way.

    It is easy for you if you take toll road.

    Pros

    Solid company with a bright future. Many smart and talented people work here. Worldwide presence. Good benefits package. A lot of cool stuff going on and even more coming soon.

    Cons

    401k match takes a few years to fully vest but percentages are earned on a yearly basis

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never stop benchmarking against your competition. Keep up to date with the generally accepted best practices and implement where applicable.

    Pros

    Work flexibility (allows working from home) and the company's willingness to invest in products and people. Global company with smart people who work hard. Good Executive team that wants to disrupt the enterprise software market.

    Cons

    There are certain industries and products which can be the focal point for getting all of the attention and investment. If your product is not one of those, it is easy to miss out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look beyond traditional ERP products for growth opportunities.

    I worked at Infor

    Pros

    Good benefits and generous vacation package

    Cons

    There were many people who had gone for years at a time without a raise. Instead, management would tell us that although they had made a profit, it wasn't enough that they could afford to give out raises. We should just be glad they weren't cutting jobs with the recession. Yet they would spend piles of money on a new logo. In the eight years I worked there, they changed the logo three times. It didn't bring in any business that I could see from the financial reports, but I'm sure it cost a lot!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps if you remembered that the people who are writing the code, test the software, and support the customers are essential if you want a product to sell. You get what you pay for, so if you decide that everything else is more important than paying to retain quality employees, they will go away.

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

    Pros

    Great people pretty much across the board. They are mostly a virtual company, so they would rather have the best from Arkansas than the 20th best in their home city. People work hard around the clock and check in after core hours and on weekends. There are lots of different products, and everyone is always looking for an angle to partner or sell together. Usability and Cloud message makes sense in this market... Assuming they stick with it to the end. Very generous time off and life insurance benefits. Just added 2 weeks Paternity leave for men and women.

    Cons

    Raises are rare and small. Bonuses happen for some if they are lucky enough. Promotions or title increases almost never happen. Company is likely in IPO mode, so they are cutting costs in strange places. Travel freezes for anyone not in Sales or Consulting. No new computers or phones, even if you are overdue. Hiring freeze as well. It didn't make Infor a bad place to work, but it didn't make it super attractive to stay in an improving economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look closer at Sales spending, consider small, but regular salary increases for top performers. Title increases don't cost you anything. Don't be so stingy. New computers aren't a perk. They are a necessity. When someone has a 5-7 year old laptop and asks for a new one, it's okay to make that happen.

    The economy is also improving. You need to do more to keep people. I am leaving because I didn't see any future other than tiny raises and no opportunity for growth.
