    Pros

    My experience while at Lawson was favorable. Lawson provided the necessary training and coaching necessary to become a successful Account Executive

    Cons

    Lawson was being acquired by Infor half way through my first year of employment. This created a lot of uncertainty regarding a future with Lawson.

    Advice to Management

    Cancel any open hiring requisitions while a company acquisition is in process

    Pros

    Very good software products, competitive salaries but poor benefits

    Cons

    Horrid leaders without ethics, save sell, sell, sell. Constant comparisons to Oracle. Leaders who leave a wake of "dead bodies", more contractors than employees because they couldn't keep employees, no work life balance

    Pros

    Good salary (for entry level), solid benefits, amazing office environment, low stress. I worked at Lawson years ago and had a great experience. I eventually moved on because promotional opportunities within Lawson were limited, but I would recommend it. I cannot speak to the environment after the Infor acquisition.

    Cons

    Lack of direction due to the acquisition plans, but nothing terrible.

    Advice to Management

    More internal promotion.

    Pros

    Company headed in the right direction. I have a great manager, and work on a very good team.

    Cons

    Not as much process in place as many people would like. There is ambiguity and a lack of organization in some areas. We are not that competitive with our salaries. Better comp plans are needed, along with better benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep trending in the right direction.

    Pros

    The people were great before infor. Lots of product solutions to sell. The design firm that have working on the user interface is very interesting.

    Cons

    The job became a job. Compensation was much lower after the merger with Infor and Lawson. The number of solution were still being tied together takes a long time to do and we did understand when each one would be ready.

    Advice to Management

    Work on getting everything to work together.

    Pros

    Those who want to excel will in this company, if you are entrepreneurial and someone who likes to take charge skies the limit. There is very little over site and no one is there to micro mange you. Plans are reviewed goals are set and then its up to you to get it done. There is lots of room to move up!

    Cons

    Lots of sub par players just floating around and taking up space, compensation is below average compared to the competition

    Advice to Management

    Keep the vision on track force adoption of key technology initiatives instead of relying on development orgs to adopt them on their terms and timelines.
