    I have been working at Rally Software full-time

    Pros

    Transparent leadership. Collaborative culture. We really help customers shift their outcomes like no one else can. Great momentum in product and amazing coaches.

    Cons

    Market getting crowded. CA's acquisition makes some wonder whether to stick around. Make sure this integration goes well and the Rally culture helps influence CA too!

    Advice to Management

    Retain your best people now! Ensure realistic targets and expect everyone to raise their game in this time of transition.

    I worked at Rally Software full-time

    Pros

    The people that were at Rally were great. Though some teams needed to be reorganized as hubris got the best of them.

    Cons

    Make no mistake, you are working for CA now and do your home work and really read the very restrictive IP contract before you accept an offer. Most of he good people have left or are waiting for stock to vest. The stack is fairly orphaned as new feature are brought on board. There are very rough seas ahead as CA finds this out.

    Advice to Management

    Do not ever bring the CEO of CA to Boulder again to talk down to the staff.

    Pros

    Casual / flexible environment Insanely smart people Fun office A lot of fresh ideas and new processes

    Cons

    Pay can be stagnant Acquired by CA -- hard to say how things are going to change Lost a lot of key members due to acquisition Some things are implemented internally without thinking it through Tough breaking out of your position / getting promoted

    Advice to Management

    Try to maintain the culture if you want to keep long time employees

    Pros

    I am empowered by my superiors. I am supported by my peers. The culture is amazing.

    Cons

    It doesn't always seem like we have enough people to do all the things we need/want to do.

    Advice to Management

    Hmmm, I guess I'd say don't be afraid to dig in and occasionally audit long-running projects.
