    Pros

    Great employees. Great product. Great location.

    Cons

    Too many VPs and Directors. The former upper level management decision making practically ruined this company. Now, the new CEO is making drastic decisions that appear to be to satisfy the stockholders. The employee morale is very low. He has laid off nearly 80 employees. The remaining employees are scared they will lose their jobs. The CEO is planning to move the company from a growing downtown to cut costs. No one appears to care about the employees, now. The way things are going and the moves the CEO is making I would be surprised if this company was still around in a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purge some of upper level management. Start caring more about the employees.

    Thank you for your feedback. We agree that Covisint has great employees, a great product, and a great location. There have been changes to the former upper level management to help drive us forward ... More

    I have been working at Covisint

    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

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Covisint (more than 5 years)

    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

    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

    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.
