    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

    I worked at Covisint full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Covisint full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Environment can be flexible, things like not having to take a days sick leave to see a doctor. Three weeks leave is relatively generous.

    Cons

    Don't expect any loyalty if you get laid off, they laid of folks with 8 years of seniority with less than 3 weeks severance. Established Detroit execs have a tendency to shout at employees, highly aggressive. No responsibility taken by anyone, lots of finger-pointing. HR processes are non existent. They expect you to be available at night and over weekends. To many directors and managers. "Old boys" run the company and decision making is often done by hallway conversations. Company can change your job, title, role and manager without consulting you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on communications downwards, and set realistic market and employee expectations. Find ways to reward outstanding performers.

    Pros

    It's a job and it that's about it.

    Cons

    Senior management is CLUELESS. Product is OLD and doesn't work. Very unhappy customers. OKTA does the same thing for half the price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new job or learn how to lead by example. The new CEO is just as bad as the old one

    I have been working at Covisint

    Pros

    The headquarters located in downtown Detroit is a great place to work.

    Cons

    No vision for the company , No growth for your career , In fire drill mode 24/7 ,
    Just laid off 1/3 of the work force this week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with some respect and not just as mere objects. Have a long term vision. Hire good people. Bring some transparency to the company and communicate the real strategy if you ever have one to the employees.
