Received in Europe today. Very generic, not information attached about IC, benefits (lost de company car, lost full insurance health for all family) Your opinion?

More layoffs?

There was some talk about more layoffs after the holidays. Any news on that?

Happy 2019 or not...

I’m happy with my with my offer, but something doesn’t feel right. Hmm maybe it’s just that Broadcom leaves this odd taste in my mouth. Maybe the RSU just feels like a bribe or they want us to not pay attention to something. I think I’m going to... read more

COBRA Continuation run around

Has anyone signed it yet? Their conduct is very illegal in Europe. The ship is sinking. Seems like management are now panicking with the number of resignations and push back on the new package and threat of legal action. Ashok says in Town Hall... read more

Don't be naive

Are there people here who honestly believe we are done with layoffs? That Broadcom will happily keep on everybody who is left forever and ever? Seriously? Get real, people. The former CA employees will be continuously trimmed until all but a... read more

HCL offers

US folks going to HCL, I hear you have offer letters but I hear nobody talking about them - are they the same as what you had before?

Will HCL buy CA Products ?

HCL company has just announced that it has acquired some IBM products Given that many of the CA service people will be in HCL soon, it is logical to assume that the next move will be the acquisition of some CA products (and very soon I am afraid)... read more

Multi Year RSU

Someone asked about this program. Now that it's public info, I can share limited details, see SEC filing for more info. Multi Year RSU is a program where you will be given 4 separate grants but all at once (each grant vest over 4 years). CA employees... read more

Stay people what is the state?

The bait and switch

So how many of the former "Stay" services employees that have been forced into the divestiture are going to bail instead of going to HCL. I was talking to one of the security guys, he had a job lined up but was willing to give the new role a try, but... read more

Children of a lesser God

Folks I know that in such bad situation nobody cares about anybody but please tell me: how could you possibly live with peole who during the transition have been moved from CA PS to some sales position at Broadcom? From sure DIVEST to firm STAY.

How bad of an idea is this?

I'm thinking that when my time comes to be laid off (and I'm assuming it'll happen sometime next year,) I use the severance as a starter for my own small business. Something small and completely unrelated to what I'm doing now. I'm so tired of big... read more
