    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Need more products to sell into new and smaller customer accounts.

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very embedded culture. Highly qualified people. Strong technical abilities by most.

    Cons

    Much better at selling than implementing the products. Several acquisitions created an environment where it was difficult to make all of the platforms work together. Legacy customers that paid large fees make it so it was difficult to move to new platforms.

    Advice to Management

    Improve the Professional Services department, giving them the tools they need to get things to work.

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked at a medium sized office, many good people.
    Pretty good pay (was a software developer) with good benefits.

    Cons

    Since 2000, fear of layoff always a worry (my turn was late 2017).
    Recent "project newton" - focus on fewer offices with emphasis outside US.

    Pros

    You get paid, well, for doing what you do. The benefits are good, and in some groups the teams are good too.

    Cons

    The things you build don't matter, really, and the culture is very, very old.

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work that was fun to do with coworkers that were trustworthy. The pay was good, but once you hit the top...

    Cons

    Insecurity with layoffs every 6 months or so. Too much work at times and unable to take time off. Hard to balance life with work as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Work to keep people with a good work ethic, strong skills, and product knowledge. Those things are not easy to replace and can be more costly than providing some training opportunities and a job transfer.
