I have been working at CA Technologies

Pros

salary, compensation, career potential and the opportunity to make big improvements in a short period of time

Cons

lack of organization around international policies and practices, abundance of performance plans and employee turnover

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get feedback on managers in a meaningful way since many do not conform to the new direction, limit the PIP (performance improvement plans) to employees who need it and not those one simply doesn't like, make CA trustworthy (in the eyes of employees and the public), make HR and the ombudsman a trusted partner (not something feared) and stop hiring people from start up companies

    Pros

    CA has good benefits, many talented people, good products and a great business model. The business model throws off lots of cash, which enables new investments.

    Over the past several years, senior management has focused more on the customer and corporate values, making this a much better place to work than the Computer Associates of the past.

    Cons

    The company has become increasingly political since John Swainson, the former CEO announced his retirement.

    Although the business model throws off lots of cash and is very stable, it makes growth much harder. The company has been struggling to grow, making upward mobility much more difficult.

    Pros

    Good benefits, people, and location.

    Cons

    CA has a risk-averse culture, where marketing leads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bill needs to devote time and energy into making quality products, and less about the fluff surrounding it. Vision gets you in the door, but if our customers can't install our products, they're going to remember that.
