    Pros

    Coolest technology around with some of the most innovative people in the IT industry. If you work hard, it is recognized and people will think of you as the SME in your domain.

    Cons

    It is a culture of working very hard and performing at a high level all of the time. Sometimes, as an employee, you have to step away and take a vacation or personal day.

    Advice to Management

    To keep moving forward with the employee programs and be transparent about the direction of Covisint.

    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 Management

    Better communication, and focus on culture.

    Pros

    Covisint is currently going through an exciting period of cultural and organizational change. The shift of strategy is already being appreciated by market analysts. The company changed 50% of the top management, on-boarded top notch Silicon Valley Executives and opened a wonderful office in SF for the Product and Marketing organization, with an outstanding startup-like culture. In In the Detroit HQ, there are plenty of world class talents and domain experts that are being complemented by West Coast talents (compensated competitively). They are creating compelling IoT solutions and the business outlook is extremely positive. Very friendly and motivated people who want to make the difference. People turnover is extremely low.

    Cons

    The SF office is not for people who are looking for a 9-5 job. You have to be prepared to work hard and you will be rewarded for doing that. You have to be able to thrive into a highly uncertain environment that reflects the intrinsic fluidity of the IoT space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep letting people express themselves to unleash their full potential also after the change process will be over.

    Lots of traveling to Detroit, which overall is a great experience on business side, but be prepared for the time away.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build more business processes and shoot for the moon.

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

    Pros

    - Great employees at all levels who are driven to do the right thing for the company and its customers. Both in Southfield and San Fran.

    - Many companies claim to play in IoT but Covisint is one of few with actual offerings running (connected vehicle). The identity stack is an industry best.

    - Very good benefits for a company of this size.

    Cons

    - Execs and managers are approachable (more than in my previous jobs) but company communications need further improvements.

    - Lots of (former) employees are bad-mouthing the company while saying that the people and the technology are outstanding. Hard to understand.

    Advice to Management

    Help everyone grow and succeed in their roles. Communicate more effectively what the company stands for.

    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.
