How are career development opportunities at Infor?

Pros

Solid opportunities, growth personally and professionally. An organization that is passionate about and a laser focus on customer first, investments in employees, from inclusion and diversity, professional development and employee engagement. An organization that really listens and responds to needs to of customers and employees. Solid culture!

Cons

Company is working towards the gaps around employee engagement and professional development and career paths, this effort isn't a quick fix but I've seen an enormous effort over the last year.

Does Infor have any sort of mentoring program?

Pros

Interesting projects Helpful people (when they could be contacted) Reasonable compensation

Cons

Lack of work given to interns Lack of introductions Lack of people to learn from as an intern Lack of communication to leaders/avenues for more work Little to no guidance Minimal onboarding procedures Clear lack of interest in developing talent Clear company culture, but interns are not invited No mentorship No expectation of success No reason to come to work besides pay

Advice to Management

If you are going to waste time and money with an internship program, at least pretend to invest in them. I understand that interns cannot be a priority in a busy corporate world, but having them work on a single project over 10 weeks (which took weeks to get all permissions and information, and was finished about 2.5 weeks after that) and failing to provide someone to learn from is pathetic. This internship was called a "learning opportunity" by the recruiters, managers, and so on, but the only learning I did was from Google. Provide some kind of team to learn from or some kind of task management system (Jira or some other ticket system would work great). I don't want to come to work to just sit and wait to return home. Infor has potential, and seems like it could be a good company. Please let the interns see that.

No mentorship

Why do Infor employees quit?

Pros

NYC office is gorgeous -- if only they invested in much as much in their people. Work/life balance is decent.

Cons

Anyone who wants to work here should proceed with extreme caution. If you come here, make sure to keep your resume and portfolio up to date and are socking away savings. You'll need it for sure. All opinions are my own but see the other reviews. The real ones, not the fake ones by Infor. Turnover is high, thanks to constant layoffs. Many also leave due to instability, poor management, and lack of advancement. In 18 months, my team had two massive cuts and one smaller one. Jobs are eliminated or outsourced all the time. Most of the talented people have left. Morale is low. Many are demotivated by low pay, directionless leadership, and zero recognition. My team had no women in leadership. Most of the females and minorities were let go, and it was clear who the important people were, according to our managers. The few women on my team frequently spoke about the dismissive, biased attitude management had toward them. My department had no real culture, leadership, or innovation -- just buzzwords and empty promises. Our impetuous "Head of (Jargony Buzzword)" would take nasty jabs at people in meetings and demoralize people to drive them out. I wouldn't recommend accepting an offer here unless you want to work for a submarket salary just to be out on the street within a year. Severance is stingy compared to similar organizations, and you won't be reassigned to a different team. Infor does the minimum to protect themselves from litigation but otherwise doesn't care about employees.

Advice to Management

Remember that you are not immune from the machinations of Infor and Koch. You can only throw people under the bus for so long before leadership gets wise and things come home to roost.

How are promotions handled at Infor?

Pros

1. Employee Engagement programs. 2. Work and life balance 3. The people in general (Employees, HR, Support Staff) are nice and easy to work with. 3. Employee benefits.

Cons

Career advancement or promotions are only reserved for those who are in the "inner circle" of management leaders. You should know how to deal and play both sides of office politics if you want to get promoted.

Advice to Management

Infor needs to seriously review their process on choosing management leaders, to see if they are really capable of leading without bias and favoritism.
