    Pros

    Hard work and long hours but the work is rewarding because you are working with top notch players

    Cons

    Its often hard to climb the ladder if you are working remotely or in a client-facing travel position because of the lack of face time with upper management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Getting your remote groups together quarterly would really help with team building

    IT Dept salaries are competitive. Opportunity to work with new technology and CA software. As a company, CA has great health benefit options. Many departments allow work from home.

    Cons

    Long hours in the IT dept. IT Support Model leans heavily to offshore resources which tends to increase time to resolution for issues. This model also impacts the ability to move around within the IT dept for US based employees.
