    My experience with CA

    Senior Principal Consultant (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsI 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.

    ConsThere'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 Senior ManagementPlease see the "cons".

    Good Company to work for, but it's not your common high tech company in the Silicon Valley

    Senior Director, Engineering Services (Current Employee) Santa Clara, CA

    ProsOverall benefits are good. The products are great and you get to learn a lot. CA also pushes people to innovate and invent. They have a great patent program. From the product perspective, they are one of the leaders.

    ConsIMHO Salaries are a place where they can improve. I have been with this company for a long time. I don't feel they emphasize on career growth enough.
