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

    Pros

    Resources, some very sharp technical minds. Stability in the application coding ranks and a tremendous pre-sales technical organization - willing to do what it takes to make the customer come out whole.

    Cons

    Two things: One, a heritage of the "bad old days" is more rampant than much of management appreciates. Negotiation of contract renewals done by a CA group independent of the sales or customer contact organization leads to some very mixed customer satisfaction results, as in " SIgn this or we pull the plug and you can just deal with the fallout , Mr. Customer!" And two, middle management in the field sales organization typically adds little value, simply pressing for the forecast numbers while parachuting in for sporadic events or meetings because they have a span of control of 12 - 18 reports.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current segmentation strategy ( Large New, Large Existing, Growth) needs to be "tweaked." Losing a lot of good people who are at the mercy of the account assignment. With sales cycles of six to nine to eighteen months, sales staff should be prepared to live without incentive pay as the cycle matures. If the account base or territory is either restrictive ( as in half "hate" CA from the old days) or limited in number, not only does the sales staff member have to deal with the reduced income, but also with the typical sales management pressure as the months needed to repair or create the relationships needed to close the business.
