I very much enjoyed working with the executives. I was quite interesting
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Detroit MIJune 18, 2015
Pros: Working with the execs
Cons: Sometimes there was alot of pressure.
Checking email, scheduling meetings, catering, etc.

I learned how Compuware was run. Being a publicly owned company there was much to learn about earning calls, IPOs, etc.

The hardest part was the phone lines, we had 15 executives and we were responsible that they were answered by the third ring and screened properly.

The most enjoyable part was I was allowed to think outside the box for problem solving and doing research for special projects.

Pros: Very pleasant work environment.
Cons: Pay could've been a little better.
typical day at work was testing software changes and writing programs to extract data used in the testing.

learned how independent testing of software uncovered many more flaws in the software.

management was excellent to work with. I still stay in touch with my former manager.

Co-workers were great to work with. we worked as a team.

There was no hard part of the job here.

Productive and fun place to work
Accounts Receivable/Collections Specialist (Former Employee), Detroit, MIApril 23, 2015
Pros: Learning experiences
Cons: None
Compuware Corporation is a great place to work. They take pride in their services and employees are treated as an owner of the company. A typical day at work allows you to work independently while still being part of a team. I learned to be more self sufficient. Management is willing to work with you on challenging issues that can arrise. Your co-workers are great to work with. The hardest part of the job was having to deal with disgrutled clients but the the most enjoyable part of the job was to work with those clients to come to professional agreements to resolve their issues.

Application Performance (Former Employee), TravelMarch 15, 2015
Pros: benefots
Cons: work culture
No one lasts, run by a pony-tailed tyrant. My way or the highway. Customers caught in the middle. Sales people were afraid every day and unsure of their jobs.

Technical Customer Support Representative (Former Employee), Waltham, MAMarch 11, 2015
Pros: work from home
Cons: salary
Work 8.5 hours and get 1 hour lunch. Take email cases and phone calls throughout the day.
I learned the use of several different webtools and network tools.
Our management changed hands several times while employed.
Co-workers were very helpful to each other and supportive. In this type of job employees use this position as a stepping stone to further their careers.
Hardest part of the job was when our team was short handed
Flexible with hours and work from home. The culture and working with other countries creates better knowledge of the company.

I would recommend this company.

Department Specialist II (Current Employee), Detroit, MIOctober 6, 2014
I've learned a lot here. This is a large company, making a lot of changes, like most. The one thing that I like about this job is I was allowed to access my position and make /changes/suggestions on better ways to save time, and train the employees on more accurate ways to use there time while doing expenses. The most enjoyable part of this job was working independently and the hardest part will be leaving my co-workers who have become family to me. But some time you outgrow things, and the time has come.

Contract Administrator/ Budget Analyst (Former Employee), Detroit, MISeptember 9, 2014
Pros: great amenities in hq
Cons: poor career development/advancement opportunities
A beautiful building in a great downtown location but the company was headed in the wrong direction...why: poor management. I was not at all surprised when it was sold to a private equity firm...I feel bad for the firm that bought it...too little too late...

The culture however was fabulous...great amenities in building!
