    Pros

    Good Pay, good People, Great Location - Great if you are starting up with a company - great opportunity to move within the company

    Cons

    If you want to move up within the company you need to be there for a while, everyone is about having a very heavy work ethic and if you don't have it you're looked down upon

    Pros

    Great team, solid vision and approach to the future. The new leadership that has come into the company this year has energized an already powerful organization. Focusing solely on the mainframe is an aggressive, yet solid strategy that should pay huge dividends. You can't be all things to all people, so why not focus and improve on what you are best in the world at? HR is top notch, best on boarding experience ever. Great benefits, lots of resources to help get the job done.

    Cons

    Very little to say here, I truly don't have any complaints. For a company with so many 10+ year veterans, it is amazingly open to new ideas and approaches. Great time to be here. It is a fast paced environment now, not a slow, measured march to mediocrity. Look at the mainframe manifesto released this week. Compuware is pointing out the right things to the industry that has seemed to gone negative and given up on the mainframe for the wrong reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the pace, keep information flowing into the industry about the role of the mainframe in the enterprise.

    Pros

    The culture in this company is good, boss is nice, but only few training activities.

    Cons

    time is very flexible, you can work on early shift or late shift. I think it's good.

    Pros

    Good stable and progressive job.

    Cons

    Management based out of Detroit. That really matters as the decision making and client prospecting becomes poor.

    I have been working at Compuware full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, truly like a family! Sr. mangement is extremly approachable and inviting. Opportunities to advance within the company if you work hard and volunteer to do more and gain experience outside of your "day to day job". Great work life balance as a mother - ability to telecommute and work from home when needed as well as a flexible schedule. 3 weeks standard vacation for new employees, along with unlimited sick/personal days - no one watching every minute you are gone.

    Cons

    Lots of processes to go through to get things done (IT, Purchasing, Etc.) and sometimes they are not clearly communicated so it can be difficult to figure out how to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to communicate with employees the direction of the company and what the goals are.

    Pros

    I love the company culture including the benefits, work life balance, and my co-workers. Everyone is super friendly and great to work with. The onsite daycare has been wonderful for my family! I even love working downtown Detroit, it's a dynamic place full of exciting experiences.

    Cons

    None, I love it and don't have any complaints!

    Pros

    Provides an environment for work/life balance
    Management encourages career growth/mentoring
    Great team oriented environment
    The Corporate Headquarters is amazing! Compuware has a state of the art workout facility with a phenomenal daycare and cafe. They also have a ton of other amenities for employees like dry cleaning services and free secure parking not to mention great shops. They make sure we have everything we need to be happy

    Cons

    Sometimes drive downtown can be a drag!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to share information with the employee base. We appreciate being informed.

    Client driven, lack technology focus. of course this is only from one department - service experience. Other departments work in different models.

    Pros

    Great place to work, work/life balance is perfect. Unlimited personal and sick days...Compuware doesn't believe you should take your vacation days if you're sick, your child gets sick and you need to leave or need to go to the doctor. The atmosphere is professional and not micro-managed and everyone is positive. The building downtown is awesome and offers a full gym, daycare center and cafeteria and private parking garage with a tunnel into the building so you don't even have to be outside. Also, you start with 15 vacation days!

    Cons

    Very large so sometimes you work doesn't directly impact organization but you will be recognized by your manager.
