    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The culture was professional and empowering. One was able to work independently in virtual teams and collaboration was very good. The compensation for reaching targets was also satisfactory and I felt like I was pioneering in whatever global projects I was involved with, which was most rewarding.

    Cons

    Towards the end of my term, the environment became very challenging. After booking successes in EMEA, a strategic decision was taken to go global with a major support program. Initially in Latin America followed by Asia-Pacific. Unfortunately, a management reorganisation in Sales in Latin America resulted in the program being placed on the back-burner here. When it was rolled out in Asia-Pacific, cultural and sizing obstacles proved too challenging to meet senior management's expectations within the predetermined time frame. Employee policies as far as they related to me, were no obstacle. I was able to effectively work from home in a truly global capacity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't provide any real advise to Management other than adopting change more rapidly, which would have prevented the need to outpace so many persons, including myself.

    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
