Client driven, lack technology focus. of course this is only from one department - service experience. Other departments work in different models.

    "Some decent APM technology, specifically dynaTrace, but leadership is weak at the top. Finance is a nightmare."

    Pros

    -dynaTrace technology is decent.
    -If you are looking to coast this is a company that will appeal to you.

    Cons

    -Leads never get routed properly, wasting all the marketing efforts
    -Meeting after meeting with little action
    -Compensation plans take forever to come out and Finance will not pay commissions until plans are out. We are 5 months into the fiscal year and I have not received a commission on one deal sold so far. Same thing happened last year.
    -Senior Management within the APM business unit may have good intentions but Compuware Corp leadership cuts their legs right out from underneath them.
    -Products are launched without proper testing and customers end up being the guinea pigs

    Advice to Management

    Pray that Compuware is purchases and the APM business unit is spun off.

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

    Pros

    Good coworkers, still quite a few good developers left, vacation time

    Cons

    Too many old-timers in the management rank. Development managers and technical team leads with mainframe background not understanding how modern applications should look like. Development managers not understanding the products they manage...
    Technology used for new development is already obsolete so there are really few opportunities to learn anything new. There is no clear vision of where we are going and the direction changes often. When the direction changes it's "drop what you were doing" and work on something else that's hot at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    The company has been shrinking for years., It will continue to do that and it will eventually be sold unless there is a major shakeup of middle-level management. Bring in people that understand current technology and are able to define a long term vision for Compuware products
