SALES ENGINEER (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – November 7, 2018
CA was a truly global and diverse software company giant of 2000, trailing only Microsoft and Oracle. Its employment principles enabled a purely merit-driven team of individuals from all over the world contributing directly to technical improvements and delivery, unbiased by local or nationalistic reservations, which in the latter years succumbed to conservative red colours that eventually led to its failure. Another example of conservative nationalistic politics interfering with progress and prosperity.
Productive company with wonderful people to work with
Boulder Hub Office Receptionist (Former Employee) – Boulder, CO – November 5, 2018
The start of a Monday, for example, was friendly, with people examining their weekend and revving up for the week to come. I would view my calendar for the meetings for the week and for the room reservations I needed to make. I would order supplies for the week, milk/cream, beer, coffee and tea. I signed in all the mail and made labels for outgoing packages as well as contacted all the recipients of said mail/packages. I made signage for meetings and product identification as well as names for room reservations. I answered the phone and filed documents. All the employees got along and the culture of the company was one of cooperation and teamwork. The best part of the job was knowing the company valued my abilities, trusted me and often told me they appreciated all the things I did, the event planning, the artwork, the personable attitude I exhibited and the way I treated all the visitors. The hardest part of the job was in leaving due to the acquisition. I learned that there are jobs in the world where one would very nearly prefer being at work to being away.
Sr. Principal, Internal Audit (Current Employee) – Lisle, IL – November 5, 2018
CA Technologies was a great place to work. The climate, culture and people were absolutely fantastic. The CA organization always provided plenty of opportunity for career advancement or the ability to move into other parts of the organization if you wanted to learn something new. The work was enjoyable but like all work it was somewhat stressful at times if project deadlines were rapidly approaching. Management was great and provided individuals with a great opportunity for mentor-ship. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people and being able to come in to work each day and work alongside them to deliver value and results.
VP/Sr Dir, Global Exec Events & Sales Incentives (Current Employee) – Islandia, NY – November 1, 2018
I have spent 28 years at CA; I 've seen the world, every day was a new day filled with great challenges; allowed us to be creative and empowered us to be innovative. Some of my best lessons were learned on the job. We were a family, a team! I will miss working here.
Consultant (Current Employee) – Islandia, NY – October 30, 2018
CA was run like it was for sale for a long time. The employees were happy and taken care of, but it did not seem like anyone really liked their job. There was no real path for advancement, and investment in products was low, so this made sense. That being said, the pay was good for an easy job.
CA Technologies is a large corporation with the feel of a large company
Principal, Sales Accounting (Current Employee) – Bellevue, WA – October 23, 2018
My office location didn't change once CA Technologies purchased Automic, so some of the office culture remained the same (which was good). My job responsibilities changed and I learned new processes and systems, which I enjoyed.
Security Presales Consultant (Current Employee) – Plano, TX – October 23, 2018
CA Technologies was a great place to work. Work life balance was very big here. Life outside of work was considered more important. CA new that if your life wasn't together, you were not able to perform at your best.
Sr. Partner Account Director (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – October 22, 2018
CA was a great company to work for you and provided many opportunities to grow in career. CA was finally figuring out how to make their software more easily consumed with SaaS pricing models and then the pending acquisition.
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Islandia, NY – October 16, 2018
Very good company to work for, competitive salary with yearly raises, a little stressful sometimes, depending on your position. CA provides good medical/dental benefits along with generous paid time off. The only negative is that every year CA does budget cuts and it is at this time that everyone has to worry about losing his/her job. I've been lucky to make it through these cuts for the past 13 years, however, since Broadcom acquired CA back in July 2018, CA will no longer exist and most of the CA employees will be let go, only time will tell how many. Hope to find out soon.
Senior Services Architect (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 11, 2018
I have been with CA for about 12 years now, and I have had a good run so far. Good work culture and fairly good opportunity for career development as well. Management team has been compassionate and understanding. Overall a good place to work at.
