Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Atlanta, GA
Approves of CEO

Pros

salary, compensation, career potential and the opportunity to make big improvements in a short period of time

Cons

lack of organization around international policies and practices, abundance of performance plans and employee turnover

Advice to Management

get feedback on managers in a meaningful way since many do not conform to the new direction, limit the PIP (performance improvement plans) to employees who need it and not those one simply doesn't like, make CA trustworthy (in the eyes of employees and the public), make HR and the ombudsman a trusted partner (not something feared) and stop hiring people from start up companies

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Competitive pay scales, very sales-oriented culture, strong financials, seemingly infinite resources

    Cons

    Multi-layered bureaucracy, "gool old boy" mentality in hiring and promotion practices, constant upheaval and reorganization within most business units. CA purchases several small software firms each year but fails to adequately integrate their products with existing CA solutions; business unit managers must compete against one another to share in the benefits of these acquisitions. Senior management is very big on structure but lacking in planning skills-- more of a "fly by the seat of the pants" approach.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are being pulled in all directions by a top-heavy bureaucracy. This company needs more Indians and fewer chiefs-- you should eliminate half of the mid-level management positions.
