    Compuware (now Dynatrace, as acquired for the 2nd time in 2-3 years) is a sinking ship. Not what it used to be.

    I worked at Compuware full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many good "low-level" people who make up the company.

    Cons

    No bonuses, tiny merit adjustments, high turnover rate, no stability, and rampant lay-offs.

    Advice to Management

    Get better business insight rather than blaming the employees who do your footwork for your shortcomings.


  6. Compuware, the mainframce company then, now and in the future.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    The technical level of knowledge among the employees is second to no one, and the friendships you build will be based on mutual trust and respect for one another. The passion to create high quality products that deliver value exists within every employee.

    Cons

    The largest single challenge faced by employees is the ability to change the industries perspective on the mainframe. Many new age CIOs have little to no experience with the mainframe, so they distance themselves from it. Despite the mainframe being the only platform to last 50 years and be recognized to exist 10 years from now.

    Advice to Management

    Assess the human capital for value, understand their needs and create individual succession plans.

    Pros

    Good work environment, at least until the takeover.

    Cons

    Lack of direction after Thoma Bravo takeover. Lot of confusion due to the takeover. Valuable employees are leaving due to this. Rumors of layoffs due to product merging with keynote, BMC etc.

    Advice to Management

    Have regular meetings to discuss the direction that the company is taking.

    I have been working at Compuware full-time

    Pros

    Brand new leadership brought in shortly before going private. They are embracing digital presence on internet. New private-equity owner shows signs of allowing spend-to-grow mentality Good co-workers, with most here 10+ years.

    Cons

    Product line is old, so most current customers have been on products for many, many years It's difficult to develop relevant and market-changing products for the mainframe environment

    Advice to Management

    Keep the changes coming. Mainframe users are dwindling due to retirement, so more automation is crucial.

    I have been working at Compuware full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I get to do what I love EVERYDAY. I am passionate about what I do, and would say that I am fixated with constant improvement and innovation. I get to make recommendations and 90% of the time, my recommendations are implemented. I have a leader that keeps me informed and supports what I do everyday. My leader also makes me feel very valuable and also give me recognition for the contributions I have made, while also informing the executive team of our team efforts. One couldn't ask for much more.

    Cons

    Now that Compuware doesn't own the building, some of our perks from being the building owners are now gone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, you are making Compuware an exciting place have a career, and do my work!
