    Fantastic changes for better with new ceo

    Employee Band G (Current Employee)
    Santa Clara, CA

    ProsThey listen to suggestions on how to improve. Family friendly and feel like you can make a big difference even at a large company. I have received a lot of support for ideas and getting work done since new CEO. Free lunch every day at Santa Clara office. Great office culture. They get you have a family and my boss is super flexible about me working remote and also taking volunteer time. I work hard and I do work after hours but flexibility is key and a team th at supports that. Great place for women to work and we get paid to volunteer for causes we want to. Not just company chosen ones. 5 k matching a year per employee for charity donations. It's like a Google type benefit package but for grownups and recognizing you are an adult so not trying keep you on a campus. We also rank number 1 in sales commissions. If you are good at sales this is place. If you want a grown up place to work. This is the place.

    ConsFinance like most companies throwing money out yearly for restructuring aka Rif. They need to be more grownup about this. Yes projects will get revised or scrapped but don't scrap the people. Let's do it once a year not ongoing so we are transparent and really try and see if we can do more run up to find homes for the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop doing RIF every couple of months somewhere. Yes projects will get revised or scrapped but don't scrap the people. Let's do it once a year not ongoing so we are transparent and really try and see if we can do more run up to find homes for the employees.

    Excellent Software Company

    Principal Product Manager (Current Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

    ProsExcellent upper-level management that understands the end-to-end value chain of a product.
    Benefits.
    Community focus.
    Respect for the employees.

    ConsOffice environment is very tight on space. It would be nice to have larger cubes and shorter dividers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up your methods to produce great products and reward your employees who make it happen.

    CA has been very good to me. The work environment is balanced and the people are great.

    Principal Information Services Engineer (Current Employee)
    Lisle, IL

    ProsStability, ability to move resources competitively. The Mainframe business continues to bolster income to enable experimentation in other areas.

    ConsBureaucracy, not as nimble as smaller start-ups. CA will have to evolve quickly in response to a market which shifts rapidly.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to start or grow your career

    Support Engineer (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsGreat benefits such as affordable health plans
    Monthly team lunch for support teams
    Great career paths internally and great education learning path for support. The culture at CA is growth and innovation, the company has invested in learning initiatives that have make it easier to diversify your skills
    Strong employee tenure (Have seen some with +25 yr)
    Generally the atmosphere is friendly and moral good

    ConsCA acquires companies for example Nimsoft, which is great for growth, except if if t times management from the acquired company refuses to adapt to change. This can make working difficult as you have two conflicting sides with different attitudes

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure that all acquired entities have the same goals and way's of operating, since we are in fact now one entity. Encourage new engineers to pursue growth

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very nice working environment

    Consultant (Current Employee)
    Islip, NY

    ProsGood team work and collaboration. Management is supportive and considered. The Help desk is very responsive and helpful. People are always looking for new suggestions and complaints in order to improve the work environment. Many office tasks are modernized, simplified and made to be convenient (for example, one may print a job from any location and also pick it up at any printer). Work is done with a large team of people, yet decisions are made fast.

    ConsLarge teams require a little more coordination.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep on doing what you have been doing. There are many positive things that I enjoyed noticing. In terms of work, the only thing that I observed so far - there is no habit of keeping Data Dictionaries for each DB. May be there is a central document that defines business concepts like Deal, Contract, Lead, Contact, Account, etc. but it is well hidden. The company is using many consultants that are very smart people but are not familiar with these business terms. From my experience a technician may produce a better quality work if she/he has an understanding of the business.

    A challenging and rewarding career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGetting to work with the best applications in the industry with a very talented group of people.

    ConsThe amount of travel is very high, and at times it may feel life you are on an island.

    ConsBig company, slow to change. Nothing you don't experience with any big company.
