Krishna

Sr. Provisioning Operations Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

CA doesn’t just talk the talk on career development, they walk the walk. In my short time at CA, my career has been accelerated thanks to leadership who trusted and invested in me! I was recently promoted from an Inside Sales Rep to an Inside Sales Manager – now I’ll be able to use my past experience to make a difference on my team and for CA.

Arlandis

Associate Manager, Account Development

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

The product team is so talented that a major focus of my time is just making myself available through frequent check-ins, Slacks, emails, and small group meetings, to be a partner in their thinking, reinforce strong instincts, guide decision-making when asked, as well as help identify ways to remove blockers or draw connections across teams.

Katie

Sr. VP, Digital Product

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I am impressed by how much I have learned and grown in a short amount of time at CA. In my first year, I implemented initiatives that increased the inclusion of employees from diverse backgrounds. I am now paying it forward by developing a comprehensive mentorship and professional development system for new young professionals.
