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

Pros

3 CEOs, 4 CMOs in past 7 years is indicative of turnover at the top. While it can be challenging for mid-level to rank and file employees, the company is constantly looking to improve customer loyalty and product quality and performance.

Cons

While recent efforts to create an environment for innovation and creativity have been put in place, the company still finds itself stifled by several cumbersome business processes designed to instill the highest standards of corporate compliance and governance. While good for the auditors not so good for product development and marketing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't try to be all things to everyone - pick only a few disruptive trends - mobility, cloud, big data, etc you can really differentiate with and add real value to customers and invest in those areas. Don't spread yourself too thin.

    Pros

    The opportunity to work on major projects for very large organizations. IT management is a complex discipline and CA technologies has comprehensive solutions.

    Cons

    Working on complex IT environments is challenging but also frustrating when solution cycles takes months and years. It is not selling widgets and point solutions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We have SalesForce. Everyone needs to use it, in order to have a collaborative environment.

    Pros

    Company has been a round for a long time and if you work hard, and am a self advocate you can advance into different roles.

    Cons

    You will work a lot of hours and there is always change..., aka, CA = Change Always.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication below VP level for employees so you don't lose good people.
