    I have been working at CA Technologies as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    I joined the team as a senior research aide (an intern position). Although there is not much work pressure, you get a lot of chances to learn and proceed with your ideas. As an intern my schedule was flexible enough and management was supportive too.

    Cons

    Situations change so fast at times. Couple of times, my projects got cancelled. Compensation was not very good for the intern positions.

    I worked at CA Technologies (more than an year)

    Pros

    Half days on many Fridays in the summer. Annual bonus and matching in the 401k. Pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive. High deductible. Long work hours - no appreciation for your efforts and hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut down on so many meetings so your employees won't have to work 50 - 60 hours a week to get their job done.

    Former Employee - Financial Analyst in Islandia, NY

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great facility, great culture, great people. Lot of generous training for personnel development.

    Hours are reasonable, unless of course it is during busy season

    Cons

    Too much change, non stop.

    Very family oriented - which is not bad on its own. But this is not the place for a young, ambitious professional trying to make moves in their career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop babying your employees. Yes they should have a voice but they also need to focus on work.

    Good culture transformation.

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Don't have much to say here.

    Cons

    The company is top heavy...someone has to die or be fired in order to advance. Also, watch out for the month of April...that's firing time.

    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great pay, flexible work hours, negotiable vacation, good social programs, decent healthcare benefits. There are a lot of talented people who are extremely knowledgeable about CA and the products.

    Cons

    Middle Management is terrible, survivalist culture, disengaged, downright unresponsive. Regular layoffs create the survivalist culture where everyone is out for themselves....not willing to take any risks or be creative......most people are just looking to get by...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The executive leadership needs to to get some solid leadership skills under in order to propagate their vision and goals.

    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pros of working at CA is that there are always new opportunities to learn, to expand your career & move into new technology areas.
    Flexible schedules, great WFH policies, always had excellent managers, solid training opportunities & the ability to create your own path for those who have proven their success.

    Cons

    LOTS of change - organizational change, policy changes, etc. so if you are not a person who can remain focused amidst change & adapt accordingly, this is not the place for you.
    Less so now, but traditionally alot of people waiting to see something happen instead of contributing ideas and MAKING things happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    New management & changes are excellent.

    Wonderful, collaborative people willing to work hard and compromise to make things happen!

    Cons

    Executives overlook internal talent pool in favor of bringing in external hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop leaders in the company and PROMOTE from within. Look below the senior exec ranks to find your shining stars.
