Topics regarding layoffs at CA Technologies (CA Inc.)
It is so sad in Islandia. Is anyone else hoping to go in Phase 1? The only reason I am sticking around is for the slim chance of getting bonus (prorated), options and severance. Are you worried about losing your job or waiting to get severance?
Will Broadcom not divest Agile Central? Instead send into maintenance mode and lay most off along with thousand more?
I feel like something big will happen on November 5th.
The globalization team in ITC supports multiple products across CA. What are the chances that the entire team will be laid off.
Let me set more fire on this forum based what I have been reading here: •Are you aware that in Latin America, employees from Director and above drive a bullet proof car provided by CA, tracked by GPS(the excuse is due local violence, they are... read more
From another post. What say you on this? Finally, yet another useless group to cut. Broadcom buying CA will be the best thing to ever happen to the company. They actually have the requisite balls to trim all of the fat that's accumulated over the... read more
Sadly due to close according to my colleagues? Apparently they were informed last week by someone close to it.
Anyone thinking Islandia will be occupied until 2021 is smoking something. Or that they can’t lay people off. My predictions. 1) they will lay off at least 50% of Islandia day one. They can pay in lieu of WARN. Severance counts against that, so... read more
I heard that Partner program will be discontinued. A friend overseas told me that last week Partner enablement reps were freaking out. They were not laid off yet, but they had a call last week and they are already aware that and is about to happen... read more
I heard a rumor the entire e-team will be let go day one - which kind of explains their lack of engagement. Day 1 includes a dramatic reorganization for those that remain and most staff will be one or two levels away from an existing Broadcom... read more
I am in support, in Islandia. We are the few technical people left in the building. I am sure everyone not in support will be laid off on day 1. How about Support in Islandia? So far, we have heard nothing, which is extremely suspicious. The only... read more
Hello, Today I heard mainframe teams in Hyderabad will also be fired and Mainframe business unit will be completely located in Prague or US. Is that true?? Any additional information please.
Heard that CA has an annual event with 5000 attendees that Hock recently canceled. Is this true? How many of the 5000 are employees?
It doesn't matter if it's tomorrow or in a week or month or year. The point is it's coming. If you manage to survive one round, chances are huge you will not have that much luck in the next one. Stop passively waiting for something you can't prevent... read more
Where they just keep the mainframe and then most of the rest of the company is kept intact including HR, marketing, sales, finance and sold to a private equity and continues to run as a separate entity?
My boss' boss is flying into town tomorrow to talk to our department. Rumors are more layoffs. Will update tomorrow :-)
Heard SAAS is no longer required and no concept of SERVICE to customers? what happen to the existing customers on SAAS who had license till few years? Any thoughts???
Here is how it's going to play out. Hock is going to tell everyone he hopes to build the world's leading infrastructure technology company, there will be great growth opportunities for employees, Broadcom invests heavily in R&D, he bought CA for... read more
It's not just about CA World being canceled, its how and when it was done. The message to customers stated that refunds would be given for pre-purchased tickets to CA World 2019 and 2020. There was no proper message conveyed to customers on why this... read more
Did anyone catch Guys response asking about what happens if they get divested? His response was I can't answer that yet, terms are usually negotiated specific to each divestiture. We already know Guy has a job with Broadcom, he kinda indicated that... read more
CA World being cancelled does s---, but it makes sense regardless. Unless a clear picture can be articulated it shouldn't be held. It doesn't mean decisions won't be made by then, it means they won't be made in time to properly prepare. Better to... read more
Sorry to hear the news to all CA employees. Outside looking in it doesn't look to promising so hope things work out. I was wondering from a product futures perspective any news on US and EU BU's who are responsible for developing enterprise tooling... read more
A month ago I was looking online at our careers site 500+ jobs available now only 50???? People team and the talent team cant tell me whats going on, WHY?
not a single update from management till now about SAAS, any idea if we get at least some prior notice before we got terminated. Heard that SAAS is no longer required, any thoughts on how they deal with existing customer contracts?
/ The article has a whole section with quotes from folks here. I'm really glad that at least somebody seems to be listening to what we have to say. Not that I think that anybody who matters will read... read more
With the exception of HR, executive leadership has disappeared. The only leader talking to us is HR, guess what that means. CA World is cancelled, for a variety of reasons. Two of the most likely is we can’t commit to any roadmaps in Enterprise... read more
Customers are getting no response about their CA World refund. It can be seen on #CAWorld at Twitter. This makes me wonder, if customers will be defaulted, what guarantee do we have we are getting severance pkg?
Broadcom is buying CA because of its customers and its technology, as their CEO stated, so that means not for its workers and their accomplishments. It was clear to me from the start that this buy goes way more to Broadcom’s benefit then CA’s, but... read more
Long story short - CA made an offer this week to join one of non mainframe products in ITC Hyderabad. The interview panel was nice and compensation is good. Only concern is that i'm relocating with family and not sure if I need to pickup given the... read more
The best scenario: to get a retention bonus for 6/12 month to transfer knowledge to offshore, then to get severance package, all stock vested and looking for job while working on retention with Broadcom. Second Best: Still a layoff, just package and... read more
Any word on their strategy? Do you think it’s just mainframe and everything else will be divested?
I saw an email that said that the merger was approved (no surprise), but nothing else on the shareholder meeting anywhere. I'm assuming the golden parachutes were approved, was there anything interesting during the meeting?
I heard rumors that we will lose our severance and stock options if we are divested to another company. For example, I am in PPM and some company picks it up (along with the employees), then we are laid off after that. I assume we lose our severance... read more
