    "Just the right company to learn and grow"

    I worked at Rally Software full-time

    Pros

    Rally was a unique and amazing place to grown my career. The exec team were a strong guiding group who cared deeply about the company culture and agility.

    Cons

    There's always ups and downs with companies as they grown. Going IPO was a rocky ride and then acquisition by CA changed a lot too.

    I worked at Rally Software full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    great people but some people were lazy
    easy hours for developers but more talking than coding

    Cons

    CEO was out of touch and lied about selling company. Often talked about independence but sold company to sail the seven seas.

    Advice to Management

    too late you sold the company.

    Pros

    Magnetic culture; commitment to empowering employees through professional and personal development.

    chaotic management and executive structure sometimes trickled down to employee engagement.

    Pros

    Great thought leader kind of company. Much of that unfortunately was removed by the acquisition by CA.

    Cons

    Sales management will throw you under the bus at will. Premium pricing but falling behind on thought leadership, features and integrations.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the entrepreneurial spirit and remember people are your greatest asset (that goes for sales leadership as well).

    A very Great culture to a part of. A Strong executive team. A great deal of passion for the product and customers

    keep working hard to maintain culture. innovate faster with newer products aimed that are simpler and easier to use and quickly get value

    I have been working at Rally Software (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great experience to see a company go from small start up to an IPO and of course the subsequent sale. Great management team under the Rally umbrella and wish the Rally was still operating independently.

    Cons

    Growing pains with integration with parent company, relating to sales and provisioning processes. Hopefully kinks will be worked out soon. I'm rooting for CA Agile Central (Rally) to survive under the new owner.

    I worked at Rally Software full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Rally Software started out so well. It was a 5 star place to work for several years. The best culture I had ever encountered, super smart, fun people, attentive executive management team and collaboration like you've never seen.

    Cons

    All of the Pros listed above started going downhill as the IPO approached. It became all about the money and power of the execs. It was heartbreaking to go through even as the success continued. With the acquisition by CA, the culture is completely gone. All of my former colleagues who are still there are job hunting and hoping their next phone call is an offer from a new employer.

    Advice to Management

    There are no words, the disappointment is so big to what they did and let happen to a wonderful company.

    I have been working at Rally Software (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    While no company is perfect, the culture at Rally is great. It's a collaborative environment that is still going a good job of preserving that "start-up" feel while having the benefits of a large corporate like 401(K) match, ESPP, health-care.

    Cons

    With the acquisition, we lost our free health-care, but I felt that was an amazing perk. Even though the culture is great, it has declined with the recent turnover due to the acquisition.
