I worked at Compuware full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Working with Gomez team (which later became part of Compuware) was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my career. The company grew, and provided growth opportunities for many individuals such as myself. Sure, there were occasional long nights, but there was also a very flexible work schedule that compensated for those long hours.

Cons

Ever since Compuware acquisition, things changed a little -- and main problem was with the directives coming from the HQ. Compuware has/had some of the worst HR policies -- forget the fact that it offered the fewest number of holidays in a calendar year, knowing that the company actually promoted mediocrity through its policies boggles my mind.

Advice to Management

Mr Karmanos Senior, please refrain from berating an employee in an online public forum in future.

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

    Pros

    The APM and Covisint business unit operate within a growing industries. The company is also undergoing a slow but steady transition into renewing itself.

    Cons

    Not the best compensation. Poor attention to employees and their career growth. Best described as a company that can give you a job, and not a career.

    Advice to Management

    Create more support systems that offer employees career planning and facilitate personal growth.
