Broadcom’s model works and they will do what should have been done a long time ago. Cut the place in half. Europe has a lot of expenses and doesn’t bring in the appropriate amount of revenue. CA overall spends money on things that aren’t revenue... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at CA Technologies (CA Inc.)
I was let go in May as part of the latest RIF. How are people handling this news? I see a lot of posts about Islandia but not much about other locations. Has the company been communicating or did I read correctly that the executives are all on... read more
If you gone through NA layoff, is severance a big check and pay taxes next year, how much is COBRA, etc?
Which product line or business unit may attract Hock Tan to stay invested other than Mainframe?
Due the recent events, the co-founder being arrested with other billionaires for trafficking d--gs, now all make sense, this weirdest acquisition(s) ever, not to mention the round of layoffs. It is all about laundry d--g money. How do you feel being... read more
Other than Prague which we all suppose due to mainframe dev will remain open, do we know anything about the rest of European offices. Namely Slough, Munich, Milano, Madrid, Barcelona, Düsseldorf or Paris ? I understand that no townhall takes place in... read more
I heard Islandia is closing end of March
Did I hear correctly that Mike was made Chairman? Seems odd to promote someone when half the company will be fired? Is this his reward? Doesn’t seem fair or deserving if you ask me.
Is it true?
As an Islandia employee who is apparently not getting a Town Hall from our current or future CEO is there anybody from CA's Burlington, Plano or Santa Clara office who can give a summary or some insights as to what was communicated? Our HR VP gave... read more
How much ITC Hyderabad will be impacted? Any clue?
Someone in IT had a good one that the executives are already on garden leave. I know of only 1 or 2 that are actually working like others said earlier and knowing those 3, they will continue to work until the end comes for them in November. The CDC... read more
Did you sign a severance release when you left CA? Just because most of CA will be fired, doesn’t mean they still can’t be witnesses at a trial if sued. Final piece of advice. Lawsuits against employers typically don’t result in the former employee... read more
I will also post in the Broadcom section but wanted to know if anyone had any positions on what they will do with our Legal Department. We are a very small group company, less than 100 people. Everyone is being interviewed by Broadcom and some also... read more
Do all Broadcom employees really fly coach? Does this include C level execs too?
I'm told the acquisition is taking longer than expected - won't close until mid-November. Any insights or updates?
If you ever thought CA was bad! Wait till you see what Broadcom has to offer. Very little. If you thought you had job insecurity before you ain’t seen nothing yet. They will lay off people on a daily basis. Their policies are not employee friendly at... read more
take a look at those exec comp figures. 24 karat gold in those parachutes boy.
Reposting a question from below. Can anyone confirm if the thread about the Executives coming to work during this time was posted or referenced on Yammer recently? Interested in knowing how the company will respond to this or if they are even aware... read more
Anybody else noticed that there is currently a mass voluntary exodus of seasoned employees, at least those that have not already been cut by the company? I guess everybody realizes that with the acquisition, there is no room for people who know how... read more
Hello everyone, I am interested if there are some of layoffs announced or expected in CA Technologies Prague office since CA is being acquired by Broadcom? Are the employees expecting it?
CA is by far the most ruthless software company in the world. The practices inside the company are similar to Broadcom, swift and sharp. The policy for retention and severance are nearly identical. They fire at will with no warning and gut almost... read more
Are the executives still coming to work or are the counting their money already? Are they working from home when the rank and file employees are no longer allowed? At their vacation homes all summer most likely? Are they hiding from people?... read more
Broadcom has to remove over 1.5 billion from CA for it to make sense. If CA has roughly 11,000 employees today, that would mean they probably need to cut about 80% of CA. If you think CA isn't bloated right now, make no mistake, it is going to get... read more
I would not bet on the Islandia Campus continuing to operate. The facility was designed to hold over 8k and now has less than 1000. It's almost like a graveyard and CA sold the property in 2006 and the lease expires in 2021. I expect Broadcom will... read more
$19bn to meld chipmaker and software museum into mission-critical amalgam CA Technologies, long a byword for making acquisitions, has been acquired by Broadcom. The US$18.9 billion cash purchase of the software company is so distant from Broadcom’s... read more
Broadcom Inc. stock suffered its worst one-day performance ever Thursday, as investors and analysts appeared confused about a self-proclaimed leading infrastructure-technology company agreeing to pay a premium for a legacy mainframe software company... read more
Folks get ready for a different culture - fast decision making, every decision about bottom line, no WFH policy etc. This is coming from someone who went thru acquisition/integration with Broadcom. Here's what to expect if you are in Finance, HR, and... read more
They chucked ALL customer care languages to India. Newbies who know nothing about the processes, or the products, or the company, and worst of all, know nothing of the markets they will serve, have replaced seasoned professionals. Our team of 10 had... read more
Ticker for Broadcom is AVGO. Hot off the wire: Broadcom is nearing a deal to buy software company CA Technologies for about $18 billion, according to people familiar with the matter. Broadcom is to pay $44.50 a share for CA, formerly known as... read more
I have heard very vague rumors of further layoffs in the next few months. Anyone else?
Obviously layoffs are difficult - for all involved. The best option is to handle everything with integrity which is currently in question where CA is concerned. The timing - down to the week - is of utmost importance to both the employee and... read more
Somebody in another thread wrote how management was very open about these layoffs and how that's a good thing, and it got me thinking. Is it better to get all the info on layoffs in advance, but not know for months if you are among those who are... read more
How visible has management been on this layoff? I am wondering if they are communicating with employees or hiding in the Ivory Tower. I know for a fact they are not in Islandia but any idea on how they are “showing” up?
How many of the new jobs are going to Vietnam?
Any thoughts on how bad will this week be regarding layoffs? Or will we maybe get a short reprieve? I just hope they don't continue as they have so far and spread it out over a couple of months, with fifty or a hundred laid off each week. That would... read more
Has there been any layoffs in India?
