    Pros

    Flexibility, Work from Home, PTO, Possibilities for Career Change, generally friendly people.

    Cons

    Benefits are not terrible, but not industry leading (PTO is great though). Not great at growing people or hiring out of college. Tends to fill management positions with cronies (former Oracle folks).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would personally increase the 401k match and take a look at providing positions for employees to grow into. We make it easy to switch departments and careers, but jumping a management ladder or getting a raise is difficult.

    Pros

    The people I work with at Infor are really smart and good to work with. The work is very interesting and touches on a lot of newer technologies (e.g. AWS).

    Cons

    Infor can be a little slow to update salaries for existing workers, so it's a little frustrating for longtime employees to see new hires come in at a significantly higher rate for a similar job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be quicker to reward workers who have grown in skill set or responsibilities by making sure the salaries match.

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

    Pros

    No Micro Managing. Health benefits are good. Pay is good. Mixing with other divisions and other applications is great. You can learn as much as you want about almost anything. Infor Campus has great on line classes to utilize.

    Cons

    Infor directions changes every year and is sometimes hard to figure out what is going on. Reviews are sporadic, with a cost of living raise every 3 to 4 years. Immediate Boss's are so over worked that it gets hard to get information from them to work with new customers. Focus is always billmore, but yet we have issues with applications that we have to give hours to customers for free. So you are penalized for this.
    If you want class room training, you have to know someone special, to get that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The underlings don't feel that their voice means anything. That some how needs to change, so that they don't feel that something negative is going to happen to them.

    Pros

    Reasonable medical coverage, competitive time off.

    Cons

    Beaten Down, no serious focus on product quality, cheap attitude about everything even in profitable units, compensation below market, but Sr. Execs are at least outwardly extravagant. It's all about them and their payoff on IPO day. No recognition of those who have helped get them where they are. Management appears to be totally unconcerned about Work Life Balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should be rewarded for what they have done. But the open disdain they display for their resources is unconscionable. My advice to Senior Management would be to exhibit some integrity and think about someone other than themselves.

    Pros

    The money was pretty good.

    Cons

    As an employee, I felt that leadership lacked integrity. Perhaps as an investor, I would think differently, as it is very apparent that this company is interested only in money, not in the health of the organization, or it's employees. You are expected to work all the time, and might as well give up your personal life to work here. Not worth it.

    They don't take advice, wouldn't be worth the time it takes to type it...

    Pros

    Infor has a decent PTO program and health care benefits for the employee. Work from home opportunity is a great draw for certain positions.

    Cons

    Infor has the lowest pay scale out of all the companies competing for the same workforce. The upper management is paid handsomely while the rest of the workforce is left fighting over commission, bonuses, pay raises. It is a company that will hold you over until the economy improves and the economy is now improved so there is a high turnover rate. Upper management just needs to stop looking at ways to meet their financial goals so they can go public and devote some of that energy into rewarding the employees. There are too many middle managers that fluff their work so they can get ahead and be rewarded for the little they do. If Infor is truly to compete with SAP, Oracle and the like, it needs to develop from within and provide a work environment similar to Microsoft, Google that keeps their best assets happy - their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate less on going public and more on the employees that are working hard everyday to put the millions of dollars in your pockets. This is the livelihood of the 13,000 employees that bring in the dollars and not just a number that you can disregard. Pay attention to what your employees have to say and less on what you want them to think and do. A good company will remain that way if the employees are satisfied with their work and continue to the success of the company. Infor is a good company that will get better if given the right direction. If your heart is not truly in it, it will show.

    Pros

    Freedom to run territory as your own business enterprise. No micro-management in my department.

    Cons

    Very limited lead generation. There is a tendency to focus on legacy products rather than some of the smaller solutions with large growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve lead gen for less visible products in North America with large growth potential.

    Great advancement opportunities, company staying on the cutting edge of technology, wonderful vacation package. Just a great place to work.

    Cons

    Large corporte company means it takes time to move up and you have to be able to play the corporate game but if you can than it is great.

    Pros

    It's generally a pro-telecommuting company, which helps with work/life balance and also means you don't get stuck working with unqualified people who just happen to live near one of their offices. Benefits are fairly good.

    Cons

    Compensation and bonus plans are badly conceived and poorly executed. Not enough resources put into integration between products from acquired companies. No company-wide culture or identity, at least not yet-- it's a bunch of legacy companies working almost independently in some cases. It's hard to tell what the company's leaders and ownership (mainly a private equity firm) really have in mind for the long term.
