Topics regarding layoffs at CA Technologies (CA Inc.)

Layoffs will continue

They already told us that the layoffs that were announced will continue into the fall. They haven't reached the 800 that were originally announced. There's nothing vague about it. The layoffs will continue. Pretty much what @TGcd2mD-3avd said. We are... read more

This is not ethical

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

What is better?

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?

How bad will this week be?

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

I'm terminated!

Just as a buddy in support was messing me about the lay-offs my boss sent me a web ex invite. As soon as I joined the call I knew something was up, he sounded like he was at his own funeral. His next words where... "I have X from the people team on... read more

Employee Age and Layoffs

From observations in Islandia, the layoff affected mostly older employees (50+), especially those who have been at CA for over 10 years. No younger employees were laid off. The company says it wants to hire hundreds of new employees with modern skill... read more

How many were laid off yesterday?

I barely managed to get any sleep last night worrying about today and if we'll see more layoffs today. From what I understand, only a small number has been laid off so far, meaning that plenty are left to go. Do we have any idea on the total number... read more

Is it happening this week?

What are the chances the announced layoffs will take place this week? There has been very little chatter about it here and at the office since the announcement and I can't really figure out if this is the calm before the storm or simply silence due... read more

Layoffs criteria?

Who makes the decision on who will be laid off at CA Technologies and based on what criteria? The way I see it, this can go one of two ways. They focus on merit and get rid of people who really deserve to be shown the door. Or they decide to save as... read more

Question regarding severance

Anybody knows if we are eligible for unemployment if we were laid off from CA Technologies with severance? I'm just trying to get all the information I might need soon in order and this is the one question I have not managed to find an answer for... read more

What about the jobs being created?

What are the chances those who are about to be laid off will be offered one of the 500-600 jobs that CA Technologies is creating at the same time? Or is this a way to get rid of the employees who have been with the company the longest and replace... read more

How cruel is this?

Seriously, how cruel is it to let us know a huge round of layoffs is coming and then provide us with no details on who will be laid off and when exactly? Why couldn't they have waited with the announcement until they had more details? Next several... read more

CA's Biggest Gamble

Shifting massive and complex products to SaaS. Their existing customers expect a certain feature-set and are instead being force-fed a cloud-based solution offering 1/10th of the required and expected functionality. CA's plan: keep much of the same... read more

More rumors on layoffs at CA Technologies

Somebody in an old thread posted less than a day ago "Heard more rumors of 1000+ yesterday, unsourced. Change Always..." I was wondering if anybody here knows if there is any truth to this? Where did the information come from and if there are any... read more

CA Technologies New York City Office Shut Down

CA is moving its global HQ from New York City to Stamford or Hartford, Connecticut in late 2018 or early 2019. The move is intended to make life more convenient for the CEO, CFO and CMO who all live in Connecticut and don't want to commute into New... read more

No remedy for bad management

There’s no remedy for bad management. Bad managers hire only bad managers because any good managers will recognize the incompetence and escape the recruitment process. Bad managers blame engineers for management issues. Bad managers point the finger... read more

CA Technologies severance info correction

I'm not sure where the info below came from regarding severance, as that is not in the current plan. It's two week per year, as it has been for last two decades. Also, your severance does not get reduced if you are asked to stay during a transition... read more

Always more layoffs

CA Technologies does not have major layoffs because they are ongoing, every three months we lose people, no matter how we do. There is zero job security here. I don't remember a time when I went into work not worried about whether it was my time to... read more

Political minefield

CA is a really crappy company to work for unless you are a Golden Boy or Girl. If your boss likes you, you get ALL the plum assignments, but if they don't you get the really crap jobs/accounts or nothing. I saw this happen multiple times, and I saw... read more

Advice on Layoffs?
