    Enjoyed my time working at Lawson. Quality people; quality product.

    Business Development Manager (Former Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsThe people were a big part of what made Lawson Software special. There were a lot of very smart people, with solid Midwestern values.

    ConsWe were the underdog against larger competitors, but I think that was a unifying force. Also with the consolidation in the industry, many of those competitors are now just Oracle.

    Lawson Manila is a nice place to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat place to work with. You'll learn a lot, with friendly and flat culture. There is travel. There is work-life balance. Aligns with their "Simple is better" motto.

    ConsLimited opportunity for career growth esp for mid-level employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to improve on providing trainings and opportunities for career growth (technical)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Lawson - Great

    Services Director (Former Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsLawson (pre-Infor) was a great company to work for - hard work and results translate into financial reward and additional opportunity. Most people at the company were dedicated hardworking individuals, and always a pleasure to work with.

    ConsSome difficult customers and poor customer locations, but that should be expected and not necessarily a negative.

    Advice to Senior ManagementShouldn't have sold to Infor! (too late now)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    From good, to bad, to worse...

    Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Saint Paul, MN

    ProsPrior to the Infor acquisition the company showed commitment to customers and new products.

    ConsAfter the Infor acquisition, no commitment beyond serving the most immediate corporate needs, at the expense of customers, innovation and employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. It's a lost cause.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work, really enjoyed it

    Practice Director (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsThe people were top notch. I worked with lots of leaders of various sales and services teams that were very strong and great at getting results. The offshore resources were also the best I've worked with in years.

    ConsIncentive plan did not effectively motivate the middle masses to better performance. Worked well with top performers, but was not motivating to middle of the road staff and consultants.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAfter the acquisition by Infor, I understand the environment changed significantly, no advice at this time.

    Opportunity was over stated - changes

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Lake Forest, CA

    ProsMany nice co-workers desiring to do a good job for their customers. Reasonably good reputation in certain industry software and services verticals.

    ConsUnstable work environment due to Infor acquisition causing turnover. Beware of sales managers who claim better opportunity than historically proven. Ask to speak with other reps to see if they are earning what's presented as OTE for the position.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen employees have to work with managers who are disliked, not respected, it hinders the entire team's performance and causes low morale. Would be good if you survey your employees periodically to make sure this is not an issue. It is on my team, and no one wants to face it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
