    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (More than a year)

    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.
