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 Management

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

    Competitive pay scales, very sales-oriented culture, strong financials, seemingly infinite resources

    Cons

    Multi-layered bureaucracy, "gool old boy" mentality in hiring and promotion practices, constant upheaval and reorganization within most business units. CA purchases several small software firms each year but fails to adequately integrate their products with existing CA solutions; business unit managers must compete against one another to share in the benefits of these acquisitions. Senior management is very big on structure but lacking in planning skills-- more of a "fly by the seat of the pants" approach.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are being pulled in all directions by a top-heavy bureaucracy. This company needs more Indians and fewer chiefs-- you should eliminate half of the mid-level management positions.

    Pros

    The company is a large place and has many project on-going; though, to be honest it's not easy to get visibility into other areas as there is little mobility.

    Cons

    Very little leadership or vision. Senior management is very much focused on the #'s versus the markets or products that they provide their clients.

    Advice to Management

    Try valuing employees as more than just commodities and spend more time listening to their ideas about how products and services can be improved so as to provide more value to customers.
