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

Pros

The benefits and salaries are ok, as long as a person is placeble on an assignment.

Cons

After coming out of a proejct, It is difficult to get placement, they make satistics, and easily you becomes the part statistics to get laid off. As long as you are placeable and making money on you, it is fine, but once you are on bench, it is a real mess. They identify certain group of people, who talk frankly and openly and punish them when they get a chance to reduce the salary. Also identify the person who have working spouses or older children and reduce the salary, since it is difficult to move. I had the similar experience, I will recommend to those who want to work, please don't talk against the manager or the management, if you do, then part of the statistics of lay off.

Advice to ManagementAdvice
