    Pros

    Open to allowing employees to sometime work from home.
    Good Benefits.
    Downtown Detroit a fun place to work.
    Smart people in the ranks (architects, developers, Quality Assurance, Business Analyst, Delivery Managers.)

    Cons

    cronyism,
    Management has superior attitude towards earning less than them.
    Pay lower than state average.
    Those from India taken advantage of my management from India. (Seems to be a part of why they are in that position.)
    Because of Immigration laws many from India are stuck in jobs that they are being under paid for. (I am not from India I am an American but know many that have the for-mentioned plight)
    Lots of pressure and long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the few that you have in upper management that are bringing down the company and making the rest of you look bad.

    Pros

    I have enjoyed the people. Some very smart folks technically.

    Cons

    Something going badly wrong. Some of my friends in various sales and sales support roles were told again today that the commissions that were supposed to the paid at the end of June won't be paid again, this is the second time. For people dependent on quarterly commissions this is hard. I know of 7 more people who have left, another 25 who are looking. You have to start to worry about what is happening when a company who raised 50 million in an IPO can't pay commissions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you agree to pay people for their work, pay them! I am sure that Sam Inmon is not hurting financially.

    Pros

    The cafeteria has good food. The gym is clean and functional. The building overall is clean. The equipment is somewhat ok.

    Cons

    Highly dysfunctional leadership. The mentality at Covisint is for middle and senior management to throw everyone under the bus, and then expect those same people to work 24x7. In fact, it's the whole Compuware/Covisint persona that is so passive aggressive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove all of your IT and GDO management, and start over.

    Pros

    Overall the compensation package is really good. Lots to learn, if motivated, although the technology is a little dated. The building is wonderful, with Campus Martius just across the street. The gym, day care, laundry, shoe shine, cafeteria are on site which is nice given the hours you will work.

    Cons

    Bully management makes your job extremely challenging. Expect to work late nights and a lot of weekends. You will have big goals with little support and little respect from management. Don't forget about Detroit city taxes. I wouldn't recommend this place unless you really need a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the hero culture and invest in your employees. Work to build a culture of team players that work together.

    Pros

    Many great people there. They have great customers in major OEMS and HC and need to strive to retain key customers.

    Cons

    Need a better culture. Recent layoffs have placed morale at an all time low. The mgmt team needs to figure out how to re-energize the remaining staff or people will give up and leave on their own. What is the vision, no one knows or doesnt communicate from senior mgmt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about the customers and the people, if you do that the stock price will reflect it

    Pros

    People are great, cutting edge business challenges, great building to work in. Day to day the work is hard but enjoyable. The facility is great with daycare and a gym in the building. Downtown is also a great place for restaurants and attractions

    Cons

    Leadership is rudderless, non supportive, treat employees like cattle, overworked and not compensated for it. The technology is dated and needs a refresh. Internal development is trying hard to follow procedures but the workforce is leaving in droves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what it is you want to do. Really look at how many hours your employees work and adjust their work/life balance to help them instead of burning them out.

    Good company. Work experience depends on what group in the company you work in. Some groups are good with good people and are well organized, while others are not.

    Cons

    Location. Most employees do not live near downdown detroit and have a long commute.
