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

    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.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, opportunities to work from home, co-workers are nice

    Cons

    Company isn't growing organically, disparity between desire to be "agile" and the reality of entrenched inefficient processes, consistent rumors of layoffs

    Advice to Management

    Sustainable growth must be organic and must start with top engineering talent; company processes are too complex and preventing a true agile culture from taking root despite what the marketing campaigns (both internal and external) promote as being true

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    There are some really talented people at CA. "Herculean efforts" is a term that comes to mind when reflecting back on my tenure with the company.

    Cons

    Culture seems to be changing to a "CYA" culture. Seems as though a lot of people are looking over there shoulder instead of doing their job.

    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.
