I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

3 CEOs, 4 CMOs in past 7 years is indicative of turnover at the top. While it can be challenging for mid-level to rank and file employees, the company is constantly looking to improve customer loyalty and product quality and performance.

Cons

While recent efforts to create an environment for innovation and creativity have been put in place, the company still finds itself stifled by several cumbersome business processes designed to instill the highest standards of corporate compliance and governance. While good for the auditors not so good for product development and marketing.

Advice to Management

Don't try to be all things to everyone - pick only a few disruptive trends - mobility, cloud, big data, etc you can really differentiate with and add real value to customers and invest in those areas. Don't spread yourself too thin.

    I have been working at CA Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Money is decent and the benefits are good. They paid for gym membership.

    Cons

    Management is putting all their hope in new hires, while the experienced people are looking to keep their jobs. The company uses technology from the 50's and is looking to make the jump to the 70's, but they need it done yesterday.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get out of the 50's. Senior Management... learn more than 3 of the distributed products that your company sells.

    Pros

    Flexibility to make your own schedule.

    Cons

    some of the management is horrible. Not all but some.

    Advice to Management

    start to be more realistic about what your sales people can attain. Some accounts should not be included in forecast numbers.
