I worked at Compuware full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Outstanding facility -- one of the best in the country. Truly outstanding.

Cons

Little upward movement/mobility. Lack of career direction. Poor (and seemingly getting worse) financial outlook. Year after year, conference calls promised (after bad earnings) that a few key deals at the last minute just didn't come through along with management's promises to shake up sales. Horrible strategy.

Advice to Management

Existing leadership has "managed the decay" of what was once a great company. Needs to clean house for much of upper management.

    I worked at Compuware full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They take care of their employees. Very good salary, second-to-none benefits. The building downtown is a great place to work (although the commute is awful).

    Cons

    It was a great place until the company started coming unglued. Venture capitalists have been pounding the board to "unlock value", which now means sell divisions and dump people, left and right.

    "Employee development" is laughable. There are no opportunities for serious training.

    Advice to Management

    I don't see any future at CPWR. Even if I could have my old job back, I don't think I'd take it. The company is just circling the drain.

    The times recently when mgmt has "communicated" to employees, it hasn't said anything useful...check that...hasn't said anything at all.
