    I have been working at Covisint full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, good camaraderie between coworkers

    Cons

    Lack of integrity in senior management
    Non-existent vision and strategy
    No performance management

    Advice to Management

    There was one bad apple in the cart. He never had vision for product, valued pennies over customer satisfaction, undermined other senior executives and misled them by sharing incorrect information. He could never speak about the future roadmap or for that matter even tell you what features had been completed. Almost all high performing employees that left voluntarily, left because of his terrible management style and non-existent leadership.

    OpenText, you threw many of the apples out of the cart but kept the bad. Once again senior executives seek information from one who only cares about personal success.

    My advice, ask for product demos. See what existing customers are using with your own eyes. Talk to them yourself. Don't believe anything on slideware.

    I worked at Covisint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the pre-sales and delivery work is engaging and vibrant. Engineering group has talent.

    Cons

    Recent buy-out has effectively brought the company down to a single (legacy) purpose/product: Auto-supplier Messaging. The buyer readily admits it has no strategic plan for the remaining products, only a loosely stated desire to 'innovate' around them. Be wary. All else besides Messaging is likely to be restructured and then absorbed/sold by buyer.

    Advice to Management

    Take the buy-out

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours, ONLY if you had the right boss / projects
    HR really tried to engage in fun activities
    Good coffee

    Cons

    -Management is a herd of insecure ostriches with little regard for integrity
    -People who do the work are treated as disposable
    -Detroit was too expensive, but we had to have an office in the most expensive real estate in the bay area?
    -Serious good old boys network here. Forget advancement unless you're already one of them.

    Advice to Management

    Either take inventory of your mistakes and make real efforts to put people who will do the RIGHT thing in to positions of authority or just clear out. What was a good product supported by good teams is losing its chance because of your unwillingness to see that the emperors have no clothes (and often questionable morals).

    Pros

    I am happy at Covisint so far. My team members are very nice, my manager supporting and I like where we are heading with our platform. I have made great professional and personal friendships over the years.

    Cons

    The company's changing and a few folks are not embracing it. That leads to pockets of negativity, including exaggerations like some Glassdor reviews and other forms of "loud" venting that do not represent my experience and that of most of my coworkers.
