    Pros

    Great Customer base, poor management

    Cons

    Many layoffs - hits any employee no matter how dedicate you are.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the great employees. Don't just cut positions by the dollar value.

    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was hard to imagine working at a company I considered the enemy for so many years. Also, having come from small software companies, I thought I would get lost in the shuffle, have to deal with bureaucratic hassles and such. However, it has been a total pleasure as even thought it is a very large company, it doesn't seem to be. I mostly work within my BU but work with other AM's across our named accounts. Definitely helps having a recognizable name and install base (even if it isn't the solutions I cover). Base is great and so is the commission plan.

    Cons

    Still trying to figure out the marketing message. There is a lot of overhead (Management, Partner Reps, Marteking, etc. that aren't bringing the value they should.

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the path, be patient and continue to invest.

    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.

    Pros

    Loved all the teams I worked with at CA. Very talented and motivated people. Everyone is super supportive and technically curious.

    Cons

    CA's strategy - changed so many times it has lead to confusion amongst customers, which is really hard to deal with.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stick with it!
