    Extremely good products with some good management / technical expertise to lead the charge. Lots of opportunity to grow within the company if you are willing to put in the time and work hard.

    Old CA still hard to get past with many current customers. Have to work hard to help change the perception.

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

    Pros

    CA Technologies has a Goal oriented , performance focused work culture. At the same time it has a very family friendly work environment. They are also aiming to up the ante in existing and new market areas so all product groups have exciting work going on. Sky is the limit if you are a self motivated person who loves moving technology products further. Really enjoying my stint at this company. Many companies promise a career but CA Technologies actually delivers a path.

    Cons

    - Still struggling with strategy and direction for rapid growth
    - Needs to cull remnant non-performing culture
     - Needs to quickly build an attractive and cohesive brand image around it's franchise

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more risks and give more freedom to your mid level managers and your engineers.

    Pros

    The salary and benefits are very good.

    Cons

    While most companies have their bureaucratic issues, CA excels at fluff and red tape. It is not uncommon for a 4 month project to spend 1-2 months in meetings before any code is written. While CA has implemented Agile, 'CA-Agile' has made things worst.

    CA also has the 'anyone is expendable' mentality. Nobodiy's job is 'safe'. People get nervous around April as this the traditional month layoffs are announced.

    Pros

    Life balance. Ability to work from home and have flexible work schedule. Reasonability not too demanding.
    Also, ability to work with very large customers on complex IT projects.

    Cons

    Company that is still searching for its direction. Legacy products that have quality issues. A lot of customer escalations. Not a lot of room for personal growth.
