    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    Lawson used to be a fun, family run company, with great products.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    We 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.

    Limited opportunity for career growth esp for mid-level employees

    Pros

    Lawson (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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shouldn't have sold to Infor! (too late now)

    Declining Employee Satisfaction. Seems to be only focus on sales and acquiring more companies
