Cons
"In terms of the main improvement to NetSuite is the talent itself. It's grown so fast and there are about 25,000 companies running on it, and it's a relatively newer system compared to other competitors. It's growing so fast that the talent base in the partner organization (there's about 200 of them), is pretty thin.""Some of the features around the payroll and payroll taxes and management of that are lacking. We had to outsource some of that because we found that the functionality isn't there."

More NetSuite ERP Cons »

"Lacking in some customizations.""It requires a lot of planning to implement the product correctly.""The common issues being raised right now by the end users are mostly related to the usability.""The cost of the solution is quite high. It needs to be adjusted.""The theory-side of the solution needs to be improved.""Every year, when a new version is released, it comes with a very thick booklet of 300 or 400 pages and it is a little difficult to comprehend."
