I have been working at Compuware full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

They've got some great products that can really do what they say they do. The people are really friendly and there's a relaxed atmosphere.

Cons

They have a terrible go to market execution and don't provide structured career development plans. Senior management don't seem to focus on the companies strengths and instead are either focussed on selling the company or driving their own agenda. They also tend to pay below the market rate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to attract and retain the best talent, there are a lot of clever, agile and attractive companies in the same market space that offer great incentives and provide awesome cultures. They need to compete with these people and Compuware isn't a big enough name on it's own to attract this talent.

    I worked at Compuware full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Their APM product line is a market leader. co-workers are nice/good to work with

    Cons

    No career planing. All talk no action, Not employee oriented. treat like a body rather then asset. a slow sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    management only cares for themselves. IE while the CEO gave himself an assured 2 year severance if he was let go. he offered some employes just 2 weeks for 10 years service. Maybe treating employees like human beings may stop the downward spiral of the company

    I have been working at Compuware full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    At one of foreign subsidiaries that was acquired by CPWR for its products and the original founders were left in place as management (very good move). Very good atmosphere, extremely competent staff, attractive working conditions. Focus on long-term results instead of the popular American short-term maximization.

    Cons

    Limited opportunities for individual career - very static orgchart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up letting competent middle management do their job.
