I have been working at Covisint full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I have enjoyed the people. Some very smart folks technically.

Cons

Something going badly wrong. Some of my friends in various sales and sales support roles were told again today that the commissions that were supposed to the paid at the end of June won't be paid again, this is the second time. For people dependent on quarterly commissions this is hard. I know of 7 more people who have left, another 25 who are looking. You have to start to worry about what is happening when a company who raised 50 million in an IPO can't pay commissions.

Advice to Management

If you agree to pay people for their work, pay them! I am sure that Sam Inmon is not hurting financially.

    I have been working at Covisint full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many dedicated and hardworking employees; If you add value, you are easily noticed and respected.
    Inadvertently come across opportunities to learn stress management by managing multiple unstable solutions;
    Option to work from home when needed;

    Cons

    Very difficult to navigate through and get work done; constantly chasing solutions and addressing fire; minimum to no support from Management.
    Can get promoted in spite of lack of skills if you can socialize with executive management (coffee/lunch breaks, phone chats etc). This is extremely frustrating as work is impacted; others are required to shoulder the task of mitigating negative quality impacts.

    Advice to Management

    HR should review employee performance from within the team and immediate management. Respect and practice "Lessons Learned"

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Covisint full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great employees. Great product. Great location.

    Cons

    Too many VPs and Directors. The former upper level management decision making practically ruined this company. Now, the new CEO is making drastic decisions that appear to be to satisfy the stockholders. The employee morale is very low. He has laid off nearly 80 employees. The remaining employees are scared they will lose their jobs. The CEO is planning to move the company from a growing downtown to cut costs. No one appears to care about the employees, now. The way things are going and the moves the CEO is making I would be surprised if this company was still around in a year.

    Advice to Management

    Purge some of upper level management. Start caring more about the employees.
