I worked at CA Technologies full-time (more than an year)

Pros

I enjoyed many of the people I worked with there. For the most part many are team players.
Pay was very good. If you are proactive and very good at your job, you can manage upward and accomplish a lot.

Cons

Of course you always have your Zeros. Unfortunately some of them are in areas of authority and can make life a tad difficult at times.
Recruiting/Interview process took forever (8 months).
Like all large co.'s, Numbers to the street mean everything.
Highly political. Promotions and keeping your job are more about relationship and less about performance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn how to get rid of B and C players. If you have to cut, look at the person level and not the group level.

    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good, stable company with solid financial and government customers. CA has acquired a lot of businesses in the past few years that results in lot of new products to sell.

    Cons

    Not much growth, except in newly acquired businesses. Acquisitions are not managed that well. Integration issues and loss of customers upon an acquisition. We could do a better job integrating new businesses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in growth.

    I worked at CA Technologies

    Pros

    Large size allows many opportunities for professional growth. Company utilizes advanced methodologies in portfolio management and resource management. Onsite fitness center.

    Cons

    Company responds to the need to change its markets by shedding employees in declining areas and hiring from outside in rising areas, without any attempt to retrain employees for rising areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When changes in corporate strategy call for restructuring, consider pro-actively assisting employees from declining areas to retrain and find jobs in new areas. Will lead to greater employee loyalty and greater retention of company-specific knowledge.
