    I have been working at CA Technologies as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I work on a kinda remote software engineer incubator run by CA. I work with mostly interns with a few CA full time software developers. We exercise Agile development with 2 week cycle. The technologies we use are pretty new. Since we are doing prototyping, we get to change projects a lot, This is very cool because we get to work on new stuff once in a while.

    Cons

    As a intern, no sick break, as usual

    Pros

    Robust benefits, Unlimited PTO, Diverse population

    Cons

    Open work-space, No work from home policy

    Advice to Management

    Create more comfortable flexible work spaces for people who like to work independently and not in an open environment. Encourage and train your non-facing employees to reach out and talk to clients to better understand their needs and struggles.

    Pros

    Best company to work for. Great atmosphere and very approachable management.

    Cons

    Politics is somewhat a major concern here, mid-level managers are just trying to show themselves working hard. But the fact is different altogether, they are just a complaint box sitting on a HUGE paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Don't believe whatever these Mid-level managers say to you.

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company has a great Employee culture
    Lots of Training with their internal Education Database which helps if wanting to Cross-Train for other positions
    Starting Pay & Benefits are good

    Cons

    Annual Lay-offs every April. I've seen some 15-20 yr veteran employees get laid off for no reason other than to lower company salary expenses.
    They did away with their Flexible/Work from home program which is not in alignment with the majority of Fortune 500 companies.
    Nothing else I can add.

    Advice to Management

    My Management team was whip-smart and always assisted their employees
    My one advice would be to find other ways to lower the company expenses without it being at the cost of hard working, dedicated employees
