Pros

A few good reasons to choose Compuware include Covisint and the fact that Compuware gives their employees great health benefits. It is hard to work for a company that can fluctuate drastically from always focusing on the employee to just looking at the bottom dollar. Employees would get Christmas cashews, family picnics, and parties to make them feel as part of the Compuware family. This is no longer the case and if that doesn't change, then this will be just another one of those regular Software companies. The rest of the progress of this company will rely on the executive management.

Cons

Everyone is always looking out for themselves, which leaves people at client sites stuck in a dead end billable job and they are not able to advance their careers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to get better at advancing client site employees.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. you can be 'lucky' and get with a 'good' team (read manager).

    Cons

    Little to no chance of moving up within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regarding the downsides (above), show that opportunities are available to all who may be interested, rather than promoting by convenience, or who you know.

    Potential is there, but sheer incompetence from higher up ruins everything for everyone.

    Pros

    Solid company in a very economically depressed location. Lots of technology, some elite workers.

    Cons

    Very very poor benefits, little time off, pay well below averages. Senior management is completely clueless and buddy buddy with people up top. Lots of people within families managing almost every aspect of operations. Horrible work location, downtown Detroit, are you serious?? No company matching 401k, 2-3 weeks of vacation, 7 days of holidays, no telecommuting. Company tries to be racially equal, but in turn hires incompetent workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop kissing Pete's ass, grow some balls and start some REAL change. These stupid little company missions detract from what is important, retaining skilled employees. Fire every VP and member of the board of directors, start growing in locations OUTSIDE of Detroit, not consolidating to the center of nothing.
