    I have been working at SSA Global full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    We are kept busy. Co-workers are pretty good to work with. Pay check doesn't bounce & it is on time. After 5 yrs you get 5 wks of vacation/sick time - if you have time to take it.

    Cons

    Management doesn't think very far ahead in where they want to go. You might have a great manager or a really bad one. Very little promotion, pay is low and pay raises just about don't exist. Overworked; like 60 hr work weeks and no comp time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a plan that lasts longer than 6 months.

    Pros

    Three week vacations, for first year employees. The employees are awesome.
    Donut day.
     If it's your first job out of college, go for it.. Then find a better paying career elsewhere. But if you leave the company & come back, your worth more to Infor.

    Cons

    Knowing that Jun & Dec are the months they most likely will lay off. Usually 2 weeks before X-mas.
    They stopped matching 401k.
    Management, some are known to pass off their managing to others. Can't answer any questions, without asking another person. When you get a raise, if it's more than 2% consider yourself special. And that will happen maybe every other year if your lucky.
    If your manager doesn't care for you, you will never have any other opportunities within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do your own job, instead of delegating... Some delegation is required, but not EVERYTHING..
