    I have been working at Lawson Software full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Enabled with full support to do my job well. I get plenty of praise from managers and help when I need it.

    Cons

    A little too much travel. But I was warned upon hire. Salesmen need to sell remote time to customers to save them money and burn out of resources.

    Advice to Management

    Don't skimp on Bonus for hard workers!

    I have been working at Lawson Software (More than a year)

    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

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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

    I worked at Lawson Software full-time (More than a year)

    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.
