Pros

Excellent client base. Pay given even while off assignment. Strong focus and commitment to training. Bonus paid to consultants who maintain 100% billability - up to $300 per month.

Cons

Senior leadership seems focused solely on products and solutions, with Professional Services as an afterthought. Timing of merit increases as changed the last two years, causing some level of concern. Only 2 weeks paid vacation given to employees with less than 5 years.

Advice to Management

Compuware 2.0 rebranding effort generated good publicity but need to be able to sustain with existing and new clients. Naming Bob Paul as successor is also a good move.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits. you can be 'lucky' and get with a 'good' team (read manager).

    Cons

    Little to no chance of moving up within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Regarding the downsides (above), show that opportunities are available to all who may be interested, rather than promoting by convenience, or who you know.


  2. "Potential is there, but sheer incompetence from higher up ruins everything for everyone."

    Pros

    Solid company in a very economically depressed location. Lots of technology, some elite workers.

    Cons

    Very very poor benefits, little time off, pay well below averages. Senior management is completely clueless and buddy buddy with people up top. Lots of people within families managing almost every aspect of operations. Horrible work location, downtown Detroit, are you serious?? No company matching 401k, 2-3 weeks of vacation, 7 days of holidays, no telecommuting. Company tries to be racially equal, but in turn hires incompetent workers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop kissing Pete's ass, grow some balls and start some REAL change. These stupid little company missions detract from what is important, retaining skilled employees. Fire every VP and member of the board of directors, start growing in locations OUTSIDE of Detroit, not consolidating to the center of nothing.
