Fact: The world runs on technology. Another fact: CA Technologies is a world leader in helping companies gain a competitive edge in the technology-driven economy. Based in New York, CA Technologies is a software company dedicated to building clients the best products on mobile, cloud, and mainframe networks to help them change the way the world communicates.
The company is also committed to educating employees from the ground up. “CA does an incredibly good job of bringing in people who are new to the industry and nurturing them,” explains Otto Berkes, CA’s CTO. And CA doesn’t stop there; it also provides a mentorship program for recent college recruits and a leadership program for more experienced employees, fostering an environment of growth and support. Employees can even participate in rotational programs to try different roles in a variety of departments.
The common thread between all of these moving parts? Trust. “The flexibility and autonomy to work on what you want to work on is hugely rewarding,” says Angelo Apollos, Senior Principal and HR Business Partner at CA. “Management here is relaxed and interactive,” adds Alix Kasling, Senior Channel Marketing Analyst. “Bosses are more like friends and mentors.”
And it just keeps getting better: CA Technologies hosts an annual conference in Las Vegas called CA World, which is filled with inspirational speakers and team bonding. On the day-to-day level, CA’s Culture Club organizes Broadway play outings, informal team happy hours, and festive holiday parties to further foster camaraderie.
So, the one question is, what’s not to love?
