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

Pros

Good people, good benefits, good work life balance.

Cons

Seemingly confused executive leadership in terms of how to grow the company.

Advice to Management

Get serious about a culture change to be more entrepreneurial. Long Island is not the place from which to do such. Milking former IBMers and the like (e.g., ex-HP) at the executive leadership level is not going to get you to the level of sea change required to make this leap. Good luck.

    Pros

    Flexible time, understanding of spending time with family, hardworking and supporting team members,

    Cons

    Mix of good managers who come from engineering side and slave drivers. Role of the dice as what manager you'll get, Senior management will protect you based on your national origin - very heavily skewed in California but not as much in Mass.

    Advice to Management

    Add diversity, provide better training, allocate talent appropriately.

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

    Pros

    As much time off as your manager will approve. Many holidays, more than my previous employers. If you are in to it, lots of events in local offices. CA is a great place for people who are interested in being "green".

    Cons

    C & D Players who think they are better than they are. Discounting to win business instead of value selling. Terrible products to sell. CA is only interested in the subscription stream, and hold customers hostage for renewal business.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the "process" madness. Streamline processes, throw off the choke hold that finance has over the business. If you do what you've always done, you will get what you've always gotten!
