    Pros

    A lot of great talent that could be focused on execution and delivery

    always changing change is good and important, however; to much drastic change causes consternation and disruption

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

    Pros

    CA offers a flexible work environment allowing the employees to work from home as long as they complete the work assigned. Work space is also quite nice with access to gym at most of their offices.

    Cons

    decision making is top down and middle managers are not empowered. But when it comes to cost cutting, senior management is typically protected and the lower layers bear the brunt of the cuts.

    Advice to Management

    this may have changed a lot in the last four years especially with the new management but constant re-organization are not the answer. Breaking up engineering, centralizing it and breaking it again only makes the employees lose valuable time. It will be much better if people closer to the action are empowered to make decisions.
