    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.

    As an employee from a company that was acquired by Infor, it has been a pleasant experience to work here.

    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 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.

    Pros

    There are many good people at Infor that want to make a difference. Infor has a unique value proposition that is unlike others in the industry.

    If you like change then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Infor hasn't proven they can execute on their value proposition in a timely manner. Customers are left wondering when promises will be kept. Senior sales management are tyranical and make work/life difficult to balance.

    Big changes to the sales organization have proven costly and many seasoned sales people have left. The changes have made it difficult to make the kind of money that mid to top level performers are used to making.

    If you have a good territory or good accounts you can do well here but there aren't many of them out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't backfill sales positions when people leave. Instead, provide your sales people with territories they can succeed in and you will keep your top people.

    Get rid of middle management RVP's. They are simply overhead and don't add any value to the sale process.

    Replace ERP product managers and fill positions with visionaries that have a sense of urgency.

    Spend the appropriate money to execute on value proposition vs. cutting corners so you can go public. You will get your money soon enough.

    I have been working at Infor full-time

    Pros

    Huge company with thousands customers, employees, opportunities.
    Excellent top level vision/strategy: focus on UX, cloud, product consolidation

    Cons

    Poor, poor director level people (typically former top sharp engineers/architects with no management/people skills)
    Too many products
    Some really complex products, painful to integrate (ION is the worst)
    Micro management, mid-level managers are chopped liver and get shortcut all the time, really if you don't need them, don't hire/pay them!!
    Too many architects playing politics rather than doing their f... Job. Wich results in poorly architectured products and too much office politics.
    Projects led by directors or VPs or Architects are a true catstrophy (ex: cloud enablement is a true mess, with absolutely no accountability and continuously slipping ETAs)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate your top managers/directors, train them.
    Give more credit/autonomy to mid level managers who actually are getting stuff done
