Pros

Compuware acquired some market leading technologies. They are focusing on being experts in the world of Application Performance Management. They want to set the standard for that part of the industry and are doing well at acquiring the pieces to make that happen.

Cons

They can't hold on to SME's, they change leadership quickly, they have no long term vision and they re-strategize 2 or more times per year, they don't listen to the customers or salespeople and are WAY behind with product updates and enhancements of some of their older technologies. They cripple their sales people by micro-managing expenses, sales activities, and have leadership that is more driven by operations and finance than sales and revenue.

Advice to Management

Sell off the separate business units within the company. Start investing in the product development and people who are responsible for generating revenue. Stop making sure that everyone in Detroit has a job. There are people at this company who have been there for over 20 years simply because of who they know and not what they do! Stop segregating your salesforce! It doesn't really matter, you won't ever read this because you don't care. I'm quitting after this fiscal year anyway. The grass is DEFINITELY greener somewhere else.

    Pros

    Great place to work, work/life balance is perfect. Unlimited personal and sick days...Compuware doesn't believe you should take your vacation days if you're sick, your child gets sick and you need to leave or need to go to the doctor. The atmosphere is professional and not micro-managed and everyone is positive. The building downtown is awesome and offers a full gym, daycare center and cafeteria and private parking garage with a tunnel into the building so you don't even have to be outside. Also, you start with 15 vacation days!

    Cons

    Very large so sometimes you work doesn't directly impact organization but you will be recognized by your manager.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for. Great people. Great location. Well paid. Lots of support from management.

    Cons

    Company has been struggling to make profit goals, which worries employees and raises concerns of staff cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Compuware is in great shape. Remind the employees that we aren't going to sacrifice people for profits.
