    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.

    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

    Strong company, innovative technology, some very dedicate people. Benefits and salaries are also competitive. Fellow employees are smart and motivated to succeed.

    Teams appear to be doubling effort in some places. Processes sometimes can be a challenge. The company is changing and with that comes some growing pains.

    Pros

    Good people who respect each other. Work cadence is reasonable and there is flexibility around hours. Enteprise customers with large deployments and stable revenues.

    Not enough free lunches or social activities in the office. This would help all employees better connect and work together.

    More frequent team mixers and town hall discussions.
