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

    Pros

    Located in Pittsburgh, the CA development office is a small group of very dedicated and wonderful people. Interesting work, and a great place to live.

    Cons

    Snows way too much in Pittsburgh for me, but in some ways, the city is worth putting up with the snow. Working with CA sure did.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    CA is definitely moving in the right direction. Mike G. is the right guy to lead the company.

    Cons

    Still OLD SCHOOL CA Leaders around that talk about change, however, their methods are still old school.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Customer Satisfaction over the booking...starting paying your reps a Customer Satisfaction component to their comp plan.

    Pros

    Really focused and inspiring CEO.
    Smart and highly experienced and motivated sales teams.
    Great compensation potential if you hit your targets.
    New acquisitions have been smart, strategic and relevant to customers businesses.

    Cons

    Usual number of re-orgs. Comp plans drive behavior, and yet often times comp plans do not align with company future goals. Example: SaaS is a current and future growth goal but comp plans don't really incentivize towards selling a ton of SaaS.
    Services are too expensive but no investments in hands-on enabling of channel partners to do cheaper and more efficient services.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on product sales. Get out of the services as a profit center mindset. Continue to make relevant acquisitions. Get more in tune with what really happens on the street.

    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
