    Pros

    I worked in the childcare center as a teacher assistant. I loved the kids and enjoyed working with most coworkers.

    Cons

    The hours can be long.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the children and teachers and less on getting all those fancy accreditation.

    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    While being such a large corporation they do strive to make a good culture for those who like such institutionalized and standardized places.

    The sheer incompetence and all out political culture of the VP level and down is down right comical at times if it were for the fact that it chews up passionate employees and spits out zombies.

    Cons

    No true career pathing, growth through aquisition, slow to change course and culure, more lip service than true cultural adoption.

    Classic corporation 2000

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, slow down and stop sweating the pressure to perform or else. Push back, slow things down, and truly engage in a positive culture of agile management and employee empowerment.

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with subject matter experts across the company. Half day Fridays during the summer.

    Cons

    Annual downsizing, poor communication, and very few if any new products.

    Advice to Management

    Constructive criticism only goes so far and without positive reinforcement it leads to low morale in the workplace. It's ok to tell your employees things they do well.
