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

    Pros

    Company pays well and provides excellent health care and dental benefits.

    Cons

    Downsides for technical writers: too many corporate initiatives take away focus on the project work. Whether or not initiatives (scenarios, wikis, Answer Bar) are effective at solving the identified problem (useful information is buried and difficult to find) is debatable.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO Mike G: Keep up the good fight
