    Pros

    Have enjoyed working with great people and good benefits. When you're on the 'good team' you're solid.

    Cons

    New management every 18-24 months and little feeling of job security because of annual layoffs. Even stellar employees are at risk. Add to that, with the constantly changing upper management, cycles of processes are often revisited with repetition of past issues.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the longer tenured employees with the respect they deserve.

  5. "Decent Place to work"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I worked at CA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    - Work from home and flexibility
    - "Unlimited PTO"
    - Great health benefit (really!)
    - Working products that have been used for years by big companies
    - Willing to train you in more skills related to your job description

    Cons

    - Lay off every now and then is for sure going to happen, no one is safe (annual thing when I was there)
    - No mobility, you're stuck doing your job in whatever products you're in, cannot move to other solution offering or other positions
    - Management doesn't really care about its employees

    Advice to Management

    Give employees opportunity to move to other options (products/positions)

    Pros

    Leader in most of the spaces they play in. Excellent Benefits. Huge Product Line. Wonderful Partnerships. Great Training and Leadership Development.

    Cons

    Can't think of any. Loved my 15 years there. Sometimes new management will arrive, especially in the middle management roles, that are less than stellar. Overall a wonderful place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good fight transitioning from VSOE to Ratable! Good Luck!

    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time

    Pros

    CA has create benefits that I haven't seen many other places. How much they help is whether you take advantage of them. For instance, I take advantage of the matching gifts program that doubles the money I give to community causes. That's a big carrot for me but less so to others. They have invested more recently in employee satisfaction and in becoming more relevant in the modern software marketplace. I've been on some really cutting edge great projects

    Cons

    CA struggles like any other large company to maintain focus for any long period of time and expects it's employees to fit in wherever they are needed from a technical perspective. As C-levels and VPs move around or come/leave, the spreadsheet changes...and that spreadsheet affects you as an employee. That means your project could get shutdown and you lose your job or be repurposed to another project (rather consistently in my experience). If you don't like being treated like a cog or a line item on a spreadsheet, go somewhere else. I've been on some really badly managed, horrible projects.

    Advice to Management

    Do the work to treat employees like valuable assets they are instead of a line item on a spreadsheet.

    Pros

    Opportunity with the right territory to make life altering money. The presales and support infrastructure in Commercial sales at CA is substantial and impressive. CA continues to transform its customer service culture to be more flexible, more sensitive, and more focused on doing what is right for the customer first.

    Cons

    In some business units, the old CA demand and dictatorship still exists and needs to be changed. In some business units, age discrimination is a concern and a hidden under a rug problem. Direct field sales reps are burdened by too many administrative tasks and do not get trained enough on modern and effective sales tactics and styles that have evolved over time.

    Advice to Management

    Be very disciplined about what business unit within CA you land in.
