    I worked at CA Technologies as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I worked at CA as a intern for about 3 months. Within those 3 months, I dove deep into different types of skill sets ranging in all forms of technology. I had very helpful managers willing to help me go the extra mile and teach me what I didn't know such as Objective C programming, understanding back-end web services and also learning how API's work in conjunction with apps.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to give that learning experience I was given to the next intern and push more projects onto them.

    Pros

    I actually like the people and teams I partner with. Smart, funny people who get that its not an easy job and give you a lot of support. I have learnt a lot and got some great experiences under my belt while at the same time being supported when I do take a break. Things have really changed since new CEO came in and I see us moving in right direction. Fantastic personal growth, great office culture and fair comp. Work life balance is good but even better is the challanges - you wont be bored here!

    Cons

    Workforce planning should be more of a priority. If we want to win hearts/minds of our employees and any future talent we have to show them stability and not ongoing reorg
