    Great place to be yourself and create your own job. You can be as innovative as you want and it's encouraged.

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    CA is a great place to work. The people are very diverse and great to work with. Mostly an agile environment which is fun to work in.

    Cons

    Always worrying about your job--lots of layoffs. Upper management does not appreciate Mainframe which carries the company. Most of upper management has no mainframe experience. Have a little trouble working with customers to understand what they want and need.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to your workers. Lots of VPs and laying off workers leads to an unstable environment.

    Ca has excellent benefits, great salary, work from home opportunities. Everyone is willing to help one another with project and customer satisfaction. Great place to improve skills.

    Pros

    Great team spirit in the presales organization, yet you aren't micro-managed. For the go-getters who are willing to go the extra mile, you will be well rewarded. Despite the old reputation CA had in the 90's and early 2000's, in 2015, it is a great place to be, but you have to continue to earn being there.

    Cons

    As typical with large companies, politics can be heavy. The sales teams are often micro-managed. Some of the development executives are insanely challenged doing things like eliminating employees spread out across the the country, in an effort to centralize. While that sounds good on the surface, you lose a lot of talent associated to the existing products.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the rest of the organization like presales management treats their employees.

    Pros

    Good salary, work from home benefits, great health insurance, all were benefits of this technical sales position.

    Cons

    Way too much travel for a position that was supposed to be 50% travel or less. I don't think I had one conversation with anyone in the office until I worked there for at least 6 months, not a friendly place.
