    I have been working at Compuware full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to work with really creative and super intelligent people! Complete turnaround from how we were four years ago. Proud of the change.

    Cons

    Zero career advancement and scant yearly salary increases

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job, but why not improve benefits (keeps getting more expensive!!) and give more chances in non-product-development departments for people to be promoted and get paid better? Everyone works hard and should taken care of and paid for it. Still love this place regardless!

    I have been working at Compuware full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compuware, today, is totally different than it was before. I was hired in the 90's, during the high times, and the company was very large, split apart into many different areas. I was fortunate to survive through the low times and thought as many have that this company would not survive. Today, it's totally different. We are very focused, with a CEO that has a very clear vision of where we want to go. There is a lot to do here and a lot of opportunity to grow. The future looks very bright here at Compuware.

    Cons

    The largest issue here is resource. Compuware needs talented people that want to learn and grow. This isn't causing us to be overworked, but frustrated in knowing we could deliver so much more if we could find more people. The old image of Compuware is still a deterrent for some people to want to come here.

    Pros

    New modern office space, good support with latest tech hardware and software

    Cons

    Poor internal process. Too many "fire drills" to be productive. Never time to do it right the first time, but always time to do it over.

    Pros

    Compuware experienced a renaissance when Thoma Bravo acquired them and the company was split up. The mainframe side became smaller and much more agile with a very aggressive growth plan. Work is exciting

    Cons

    Expectations are high so don't come in expecting casual.
