    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    CA Technologies has a Goal oriented , performance focused work culture. At the same time it has a very family friendly work environment. They are also aiming to up the ante in existing and new market areas so all product groups have exciting work going on. Sky is the limit if you are a self motivated person who loves moving technology products further. Really enjoying my stint at this company. Many companies promise a career but CA Technologies actually delivers a path.

    Cons

    - Still struggling with strategy and direction for rapid growth
    - Needs to cull remnant non-performing culture
     - Needs to quickly build an attractive and cohesive brand image around it's franchise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks and give more freedom to your mid level managers and your engineers.

    Pros

    I really enjoy working for CA. Been here for over 7 years. They definitely have a way of keeping top talent with stock grants and whatnot. Work-Life balance is fantastic.

    Cons

    There's a lot of people that move around to different jobs to avoid detection of being canned. If they could pinpoint some of those people and get rid of them, they could redistribute that money to the more deserving people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
