I have been working at CA Technologies

Pros

Great technologies, bleeding edge in some areas. Good customer base. Good internal teams.

Cons

Biggest issue is constant churn in technologies - they bring in something for a couple of years, and if it doesn't seem to fit after that, out it goes! But I have to admit culture on that has changed over the last few years, and CA is getting much more focussed on core strengths now.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your incubation technologies more time to come good, you seem to be a little too impatient. Strategise before you buy things, not after!!

    Pros

    Leading player in IT management.
    Huge footprint in data centers worldwide
    Made good cultural changes and improvement since the days of Charles Wang

    Cons

    New CEO and associated team is unproven
    Although they claim to have a longer-term vision, they are very ready to cut staff in short-term to make the numbers without full consideration of longer-term impact

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shifting tasks and projects to India isn't always the right answer.

    Pros

    Good people and a desire to create a better company. Good working environment and flexible...

    Cons

    There is far too much politics
    The organisation is far too sales driven
    There is no planning or thought, just action and reaction
    Senior Management cannot seem to change the Culture and shake the past
    Too many products and not enough resource to support them, the company needs to be brave a cut dead wood products

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be scared to offload under performing Products and Business Units. Some things just cost too much to run!!
