CA – Too much time and money wasted

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at CA Technologies full-time for more than 10 years

ProsDepending on the good people that still exist and can make the difference at local level, the company still has a positive brand name
Wide portfolio of solutions
It is a good school for learning the good and also the bad

ConsOrganic growth is a problem
You can’t sustain success with a stock that is not passing 30USD for YEARS – you have promised and you have FAILED
Too fat organization and too political
Too much initiatives and less focus/execution
Mainframe business is going from bad to worse, however, financial operations can do magic sometimes. Non Mainframe business is growing, however still a bit below the leaders. Overall, CA is growing in a very modest way but with costs growing that reflect the business model in place (in Europe, this is very obvious)
“Culture Change” does not occur simply because senior management is asking for it - “13000-14000 acting as 1” is pure demagogy
Too much role overlap: Customer Solution Architects vs Solution Sales; Customer Solution Architects vs Pre-Sales; Solution Sales vs Pre-Sales
Valuable assets on the bench/not being used properly/SFDC time reported in less accurate way
HR does not exist
Lie to me but do not tell me that you are lying – positive is good, negative is not welcome, perception is taken as the reality
It is better to be false than being a foul

Advice to Senior ManagementTalk less and act more – senior management should give more the example rather than claiming for the culture change as being a pass of magic
Reduce the number of roles – since by adding roles, business is not growing accordingly, reduce roles and you can do the same with less cost
Merge Mainframe Business with Portfolio Management
Stop playing on guessing which is the best optimal organization and start over again: Customer Solution Architects vs Solution Sales vs Pre-Sales is much more from the same rather than more, new and distinctive value
If people is not succeeding at multiple role level (not just sales), renew the staff – a dead apple will contaminate the whole basket
Manage sales like a project and CHECK if what is under SFDC is really real or FAKE

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
