    Pros

    Flexible and Good Benefits
    Culture is Good.

    Cons

    Management keeps changing and Nepotism evolves.
    Free Food , But is bad.
    Only few folks work smart and hard , rest of them succeed. (This is really bad here).

    Advice to Management

    Give chance to hire right folks and not get your folks from past companies.

    Pros

    It's good on the resume. But mainly if you leave early rather than making it a career.

    Cons

    I worked for CA for four years. When I was not able to log into the network, rather than assume the network was down, I assumed I had been fired. That day finally came in a rif. And crazy enough, literally on the table they had two packages for me. One a severance package. The other, an offer to join a sales group in another department as they found out how "valuable I was". Can't really make this stuff up.
    CA is where good software goes to die.

    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

    Over the years I have had many opportunities and have grown both personally and professionally. CA invests in the employees that work hard and care about the company.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is working with collective teams that cross many countries and several time zones. Finding meetings time that work for everyone is very difficult.

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

    Pros

    Good pay. Fully agile development shop. A mix of legacy and cutting edge technologies. Opportunity to learn and a challenging job.

    Cons

    Minimal job security. Layoffs do happen in a very abrupt way. Employees simply get walked out. Severance is low and help to find another job within the company is virtually non-existent.

    Frequent management change. Within 2 years, I saw the executive level swapped out 3 times. Each time, there was a significant shift in strategy and culture. In the last swap, a previously cooperative management style turned to command and control, borderline oppressive.

    Advice to Management

    Be very upfront about the approach - or start living the values marketed inside the company.

    Pros

    Great company, co-workers, and mentors who are willing to support and share product knowledge to other junior developers to sharpen their skills.

    Cons

    Focus is on assembler coding. Not many other companies outside are looking for developers with assembler skills.
