Hardworking, passionate people with little support from the top.

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

Pros

People are great, cutting edge business challenges, great building to work in. Day to day the work is hard but enjoyable. The facility is great with daycare and a gym in the building. Downtown is also a great place for restaurants and attractions

Cons

Leadership is rudderless, non supportive, treat employees like cattle, overworked and not compensated for it. The technology is dated and needs a refresh. Internal development is trying hard to follow procedures but the workforce is leaving in droves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out what it is you want to do. Really look at how many hours your employees work and adjust their work/life balance to help them instead of burning them out.

    I have been working at Covisint full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful building located in prime real estate in downtown Detroit. Talented and passionate co-workers. Cloud tech company started in 2000 with start-up mentality but also a solid rep. Exposure to all levels in the company. Fast-paced and challenging, great if you're looking to absorb info and grow your career.

    Cons

    Growing pains after seperation from Compuware...new processes, systems and departments need to be redefined and implemented so things run less like a start-up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication, and focus on culture.

    I worked at Covisint full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Environment can be flexible, things like not having to take a days sick leave to see a doctor. Three weeks leave is relatively generous.

    Cons

    Don't expect any loyalty if you get laid off, they laid of folks with 8 years of seniority with less than 3 weeks severance. Established Detroit execs have a tendency to shout at employees, highly aggressive. No responsibility taken by anyone, lots of finger-pointing. HR processes are non existent. They expect you to be available at night and over weekends. To many directors and managers. "Old boys" run the company and decision making is often done by hallway conversations. Company can change your job, title, role and manager without consulting you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on communications downwards, and set realistic market and employee expectations. Find ways to reward outstanding performers.
