    I worked at Infor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Excellent work-life balance.

    Cons

    Management very disorganized.
    New company lacking purpose and direction.

    Advice to Management

    Approximately half of a sales representative's total compensation is the annual commission.

    I have been working at Infor full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The flexibility on travel and the challenges available by working with several different types of segments of the business world.

    Cons

    Several organizations were combined via acquisition therefore some direction is difficult to determine and some mid level management have been in roles for extended periods of time and difficult to work for. Not an organization that is looking to grow long term employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with the organization culture out in the field.

    Pros

    Full time remote available. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    Management sucks, the right hand does not know what he left hand is doing. It is siloed and no one wants to help anyone else. HR is a joke - they require the blood of your first born to do a simple name change due to marriage. Company won't spend money to train, further education or allow for mentoring.

    Advice to Management

    Stop acquiring and stabilize your current employee base.

    I worked at Infor full-time

    Pros

    Work from home flexibilty; PTO, decent insurance, good technology strategy, even though many in development quietly ignore it.

    Cons

    To compensate for acquisitions that never deliver as promised, this company operates as if it's always 2008: draconian travel budgets for everyone but a select group, crummy marketing budgets that undermine the strategy, and routine surprise mass firings that destroy lives and careers of committed employees, and undermine the work quality of those left behind. Those at the top simply don't care, perhaps numbed by years of pruning acquisitions. You can definitely find a good experience here, if you are lucky enough to be removed from these dynamics, but then you are likely in a dead-end job with so-so comp.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking of people like electricity or water--a switch you can just turn on and off whenever you feel like it because you think you are from a higher order. Yes, it's just business--but not a well run one. FIring so many people is your personal failure, due to your own incompetent planning, but yet you continue to take such huge salaries for yourselves.

    I worked at Infor as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very bright people to work with. Hard workers. Many experienced workers still pursuing more learning in their field.

    Cons

    At the very highest levels in they have some crusty old guys who say super inappropriate stuff. Have heard terrible racist comments from top local guys. Have seen managers push their religion at new employees. Jokes about women. Many glbt people have left. Women told to wear dresses and heels to advance career. The problems are at the director level.

    Advice to Management

    Inept directors and senior managers are going to get Infor sued. Good old boys need to go.

    Pros

    Charles Phillips is a brilliant CEO

    Cons

    His Management team is a bunch of hacks. Emperor's new clothes situation.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the C Suite. Get better talent around Charles, especially the COO.

    Pros

    - ability to work from home/ flexible hours
    - A lot of PTO
    - decent benefits
    - Flavia coffee machine
    - work/life balance
    - 401K

    Cons

    - Pay is horribly low compared to similar companies
    - They change the time they give annual raises. One year it may be in Jan, the next year it may be fiscal year end...basically giving them 5 extra months without giving an increase
    - increase percentages aren't much
    - moving jobs overseas (India)
    - they try to hire recent college grads (b/c they can pay them less)...isn't that age discrimination?
    - People are promoted based on the time they've been there vs the amount of good work they do

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees at least something close to a competitive salary otherwise you will not be able to keep good people. High turnover is not good.

    I worked at Infor full-time

    Pros

    most of the people are fun to work with. they have foosball and shuffle board to give you breaks during the day of making 60 cold calls. Very cool location and building in downtown St Paul.

    Cons

    The starting salary is below what it actually is because you start out as an "associate BDR" - which is crap, and the salary is $25k, embarrassingly below the industry standard. You can get that associate tag off and make $35k within 3 months of starting, if management likes you.....management is ok, some good, some bad. Turnover is VERY high - people will (and should) get experience, and move onto better companies in a similar role that will pay you $20-35k more for the same more

    Advice to Management

    Be more upfront and personable. Don't have your guard/shields up, which is what my experience often was. Invest more in your BDC org, don't keep them in the dark with what is going on, partner with them and be their liason to upper management

    I worked at Infor full-time

    Pros

    There were interesting technical challenges in integrating old systems with new corporate initiatives.

    Lots of experienced people.

    Sometimes teams gelled and worked well together.

    You can work a regular work-week most of the time: the company operates on a slow product cycle, not "Internet time."

    Cons

    Shortly after I was laid off, most of the legacy product staff were transferred to an India-based consulting company. Same job, same office, same equipment, new contingent employer. This was such a transparent accounting shenanigan that I'm surprised they were allowed to do it.

    You will rust technically here.

    All the bosses are pointy-haired: expect ungrounded deadlines and arbitrary decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Give up on going public, it won't happen.
    Respect your people.
    Don't believe your middle-managers, they lie to you out of fear.
    Get a clue: You're running a software company, not a financial investment.

    I worked at Infor as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Growing company and building brand.

    Cons

    Most employees are contractors; therefore, company does not provide you with benefits and saves on money. Only people that seem to be employees are sales and upper management. Don't treat you with respect or value your contribution. To them, you are dispensable. Good luck.
