    I have been working at Covisint full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Beautiful building located in prime real estate in downtown Detroit. Talented and passionate co-workers. Cloud tech company started in 2000 with start-up mentality but also a solid rep. Exposure to all levels in the company. Fast-paced and challenging, great if you're looking to absorb info and grow your career.

    Cons

    Growing pains after seperation from Compuware...new processes, systems and departments need to be redefined and implemented so things run less like a start-up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication, and focus on culture.

    Pros

    Coolest technology around with some of the most innovative people in the IT industry. If you work hard, it is recognized and people will think of you as the SME in your domain.

    Cons

    It is a culture of working very hard and performing at a high level all of the time. Sometimes, as an employee, you have to step away and take a vacation or personal day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep moving forward with the employee programs and be transparent about the direction of Covisint.

    Pros

    Exciting to sell a truly disruptive technology. It has been a bumpy ride but new leadership has charted a clear course for success. Great compensation plan. Truly differentiated technology that delivers great value. Strong willingness to change and grow. Supportive colleagues who are really dedicated to making each other successful.

    Cons

    Some people who have been here a long time are stuck in the past. Lots of process improvement needed. A few departments need better organizational leadership. Internal communications needs work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The strategy that you have crafted is great. Invest more time really understanding what is going on with the technology teams and set higher expectations.

    I have been working at Covisint

    Pros

    The people who I work with are just really down to earth and very good people. Everyone has a job to do and they do it. My team lead and manager are very understanding of when I need to take time off or just need to work from home in order to take care of things. Love working with all the big time projects like DMC, GM, AT&T and many more companies.

    Cons

    For being a Technology company, we are like 10 years behind on the technology and tools which we use in order to do our job. Also no room to learn new things, because as a SQA Engineer here your not allowed access to the SQL Databases nor any of the other servers which are needed in order to perform our job. We have to put a request in for a team to do this for us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the Engineers on the projects instead of just the PM's and Managers.

    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.
