Once a good (even great) company -- no longer. Not under the current management.

Pros

Outstanding facility -- one of the best in the country. Truly outstanding.

Cons

Little upward movement/mobility. Lack of career direction. Poor (and seemingly getting worse) financial outlook. Year after year, conference calls promised (after bad earnings) that a few key deals at the last minute just didn't come through along with management's promises to shake up sales. Horrible strategy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Existing leadership has "managed the decay" of what was once a great company. Needs to clean house for much of upper management.

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

    Pros

    After years of merging, product line and business are good in distributed products. work-life balance is really depends on the position, some position are very demanding. Headship is doing a fine job, a lot of politics although it's not a big corp. Now the old engine got a new look but inside it's still old. Family oriented culture is being abandoned but new culture takes time to establish. Good employer if you are in Detroit area.

    Cons

    Your work life will be very much depends on your line manager, and chance of promotion will depends on your location, as well as personal relationship within the company, if you are out of Detroit, basically very hard to get any real promotion. Compensation is on average side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really think about how to retain good people.
