I worked at CA Technologies

Pros

Leading vendor in many areas, many locations, many varied opportunities. Benefits are good. People that are not in management are usually good to work with and helpful.

Cons

Upper management keeps changing and does not keep its promises. Layoffs occur every year, sometimes twice a year. Workers don't trust company. Company cares more about stock price than its people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep promises to employees. You care more about the stock price than your people. Your people are your 'bread and butter'.

    I have been working at CA Technologies

    Pros

    CA Technologies has evolved in a true technology company that encourages innovative thought and inventive ideas. Rather than just relying on acquisitions, internal culture changes have encouraged teamwork, open communication, collaboration at all levels, and a very different and positive atmosphere unlike anything at the old "Computer Associates" I was hired into 15 yrs ago

    Cons

    CA Technologies still has room to grow in the area of internal employee growth and advancement opportunities. In an effort to find new ideas and new leadership, long-term employees have been largely ignored for any level of promotion in favor of external hiring of (mostly) former IBM employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trememendous knowledge, experience, and capability exists within the employee workforce already within CA. Stop looking externally for new management and technical leaders from your own background and previous employers. This action gives the appearance of rewarding former friends and coworkers with high positions and even higher salaries. Promote from within.
