“CA made me feel that they really want me to grow something great.”

A Day In The Life At CA: Digital Sales Account Owner

Life at CA Digital Sales Account Owner

Ever wonder what it’s like to be a Digital Sales Account Owner at CA Technologies?

When searching for a role or starting your career in the tech industry, you’ll typically find bulleted information on a company’s job description, benefits and culture. We want to go a step beyond that and give you insight on these key facts from the perspective of a real CA employee. This Digital Sales Account Owner profile is part of our new careers blog series “A Day In The Life At CA”.

 

Meet David

Digital Sales Account Owner David Hardy is what we like to call a “boomerang”. After working with CA for five years, David left to join another company. However, David says he jumped at the opportunity to return in a business development role, supporting our Global Service Providers, “which I was very excited about, regretted leaving frankly”.

Life At CA - Business Development
David Hardy shows off his creative side with hobbies that include photography, digital and video!

David shared with us that his decision to return to CA is often justified through his experiences.

“CA management and co-workers are there when you go through a family crisis, be it a family member, health issue, or otherwise.  I had the occasion to experience this first hand and it really cemented my conviction that CA is the best company to work for (even with our areas to improve, which we are always working at).”

 

David’s Career Story

In 2003, David joined CA Technologies in his first role as a member of the Brightstor storage products team. In his new role, which began in 2011, David provides support for CA global service provider partners. This was initially IBM Global Services for four years, and David is now a part of the HP Enterprises Services team.

These roles make a huge impact on our global offerings. “I develop sales opportunities to partner with our service provider partners on CA solutions that are a white space for them. These partnerships help to complement their offerings, grow revenue while growing CA’s market presence.”

 

David’s #LifeAtCA

So why does David love his job?

“Working with awesome people and meeting new contacts over the phone. Helping to bring people, client requirements and solutions together! Every day is a different adventure!”

David is also a pretty big fan of CA’s new Tampa, FL office, where he is based. “Our new office has the most awesome view – the best of any company that I’ve worked for in my career! It also has a great layout and location (even with the traffic)!”

The Life of a Digital Sales Account Owner

A typical workday for David includes working from home one day a week (gotta love that flexibility!). He enjoys starting his day with a review of updates from his team and the company, through our internal social collaboration sites and emails, and greeting his local co-workers with fresh coffee in hand. This sets him up for success to dive into collaboration with the sales team and research to help his global service provider account discussions more effective.

“Lunch is often had in our kitchen room with a view, then enjoying a walk through downtown Tampa or along the Tampa Riverwalk.”

Tampa Riverwalk
The beautiful Tampa Riverwalk is just steps from David’s CA offices.

In the afternoon, David serves our customers and partners with discovery meetings, demos, and various other partnership activities.

“Training is also a part of many days, ‘sharpening the saw’ on product knowledge and skills to improve.”

 

David’s Career Advice

We asked David what you should know if you’re considering a career with CA Technologies.

“CA is a 30 year old company, which is not really new. Today though, CA has the startup attitude, with exciting new products, organically grown software and connected in to the application economy.”

We couldn’t have said it better. Thanks to David for sharing his Day in the #LifeAtCA in Business Development!

Why do I love to continuously learn about the Mainframe?

We caught up with Ivan Satsiuk who is based at our Prague Technology Center. He joined CA back in May 2016 as an Associate Software Engineer and was recently promoted this summer to Software Engineer.

The favourite part of Ivan’s job he has huge scope to continuously learn new things. Not only is it exciting that he can learn all these new technologies, solutions and possibilities, he’s also hugely grateful for the resource network he has around him at CA Technologies.

“The best thing for me is that I have all the time and resources I need to keep learning. This was especially important when I first joined. All the best engineers are one email away and everyone is willing to help you to resolve problems if you need assistance with your work.”

Ivan and his colleagues keep up the latest technology all the time. Mainframe Technology is constantly evolving, so to make sure products run using the latest updates, Ivan and team ensure it is compatible with newest OS, mainframe hardware and software utilities.

“A good example is zNext testing. IBM has released the latest OS and hardware, and prior to that CA has received an invitation to test our products on it. We’ve been given some time and resources to check our software and see what might need to be changed.”

Ivan told us that he has learnt many things since joining CA. He described Mainframe as “miles of undiscovered land” that he can’t wait to discover, and is confident CA can provide him with the right journey to keep learning new aspects of the Mainframe Technology.

“The most important thing that I’ve learned – is I can be sure that in the Mainframe world, there is an answer even for the most complicated question. And finding an answer is just a matter of searching through the docs or asking colleagues around me for guidance or knowledge share.”

Ivan in the office at the Prague Technology Center

Recently, Ivan considered specialist areas of Mainframe research and decided to take a deeper dive into ‘Blockchain’. Blockchain has been around for many years and it was exciting to hear Ivan was given the opportunity to pursue his research on job.

Finally, big players got interested in it. IBM is doing lots of research in that field. The trigger point for me was when CA joined the Hyperledger Project at the end of 2016. I didn’t hesitate to ask Ashok if there’s a team working on it. He’s put me in touch with the group that is making a research in that field on CA side. Since then I’ve been studying blockchain technology, and Hyperledger in particular.” 

Ivan was specifically assigned to work on the Blockchain research full time. As a bit of a buzzword within the industry we did ask what potential it has?

“I believe it has a great potential in the future of IT, and Mainframe seems to be built for it. Mainframe has all the features that are required to run it in the most efficient way.”

We asked Ivan why should someone consider CA Technologies if you’re a software engineer looking to work with Mainframe Technologies?

“First thing is that there’s not too many places in the Czech Republic where you’re able to work on the Mainframe as a developer. Of course, one could go to a bank or an insurance company, but they seldom work with the latest technologies. At CA, a developer can get their hands on the latest tech, implement various algorithms, use a variety of tools, invent their own tools, whilst doing this all in an Agile manner. What else can a developer dream of? Apart from that, CA is treating its employees very well. We have lots of benefits, and great opportunities for everyone.”

The Top 10 Traits To Be An Awesome Salesperson At CA

Our awesome Digital Sales and Presales teams in Prague came together to share the top 10 traits they feel make a successful Salesperson at CA Technologies.

Daniel Alonso, Digital Presales
KNOWLEDGEABLE

“Knowledge is powerful because it drives our thinking process and helps us identify problems and solve them. This is very important when working with our prospects and clients in order to help them get what they need.”

Felix Valeda, Digital Sales
POSITIVE

“Being positive is the choice of adopting a constructive approach and attitude towards your ideas, feelings and actions, and ultimately driving it externally in order to achieve the most successful output.”

Ondrej Bursik, Digital Presales
INITIATIVE TAKER

“You should try to be driven in your approach to not only business but to all other aspects of your day-to-day work life. Strive to not rely on someone else to do it, and instead be the one who picks up the phone, gets in touch with customers, partners, internal people, and be ready to help better their lives even before they realize they need it.”

Elisa Birri, Digital Sales
SUCCESS DRIVEN

“Being success driven means to focus on your business goals and putting in all your commitment to achieve them, while working to meet and exceed your customers’ needs and wishes by always delighting them.”

Clement Lafage, Digital Sales
EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT

‘’Attitude is everything! With a positive attitude, you are able to exude the bright side of life that makes your personality likable and acceptable. As a result, sales start with you, not only your customers.’’

Simon Perche, Digital Sales
PROACTIVE

“Because customers are not waiting for you, you have to anticipate their needs. You should differentiate yourself in approach to earn their attention and you need to take initiatives to be one step ahead of the competition. This is what being proactive in sales means to me.”

Daniella Gyselinck, Digital Sales
PERSISTENT

“Being persistent is a sign of ambition as well as the willingness to work hard and try again and again until you achieve your goals and, ultimately, success.”

Carlos Cepeda, Digital Sales
RESILIENT

“Resilience is the ability to brush off after getting knocked down, learning from mistakes instead of repeating them, and rebuff rejection instead of internalize negativity.”

Yoran Klarenbeek, Digital Sales
NEGOTIATOR

“Being a good negotiator is a key aspect for any sales person. You are continuously negotiating with the client ensuring your conversations are had at the right time, place and with the most suitable person to discuss solutions and products that will fit the needs of the customer and the company.”

Carl Lundberg, Digital Sales
GOOD LISTENER

“In sales you have to be a good listener as you’ll need to listen, take in and understand the customers’ needs in order to present them with a solution that will be best for them.”

The Only Person That Should Influence Your Career Is You

It’s interesting to look back over your career and evaluate where you got it right, and got it wrong.

I have worked in a male dominated industry for most of my career and although it’s obvious that there are more men than women in my industry, I’ve honestly never given too much attention to it.  I’ve been lucky enough to be posted overseas three times, and I’ve travelled with work to countries and cultures that continue to amaze me.  I think it’s important to set the bar based on what you see from others, but not forget that you’re trying to make a better version of you, no one else.

When I’m learning, and working on something that’s as equally exhilarating as scary, I know it’s going to be a good day.  When I allow myself some time to really think about my work, rather than fire-fighting it really makes a difference. Relationships really drive work beyond expectations and it’s important to know people at a personal and professional level so you can understand what drives them, what’s impacting them, and how you need to support them to achieve everything they want to be.

Most of my close friends and colleagues would admit that, at some point, they made a bad decision about their career which set them back.  We took the fantastic role only to find out the reality was different to the interview pitch.  We didn’t ask the right questions during the interview process or been trapped in a role we don’t enjoy because we lack the nerve to make the change.  We’ve not applied for an internal move because we lack the confidence to give it a shot.  The last one is most interesting because statistics tell us that women are more likely to focus on what they don’t have for that new role, rather than what they do have.

How many friends and family can you fit in a photo-booth?

The best advice I could give any young professional, is to ask questions, trust your instincts and take the time to evaluate “what’s next” regularly, even if it scares you.  The only way to have a solid, long-lasting career (which you enjoy) will be to challenge your mind and body while understanding that health and happiness cannot be taken for granted.  We are human, and without the right environment and ‘nourishment’ we can break, and sometimes you might be the last person to see it coming.  Surround yourself with people, both professionally and personally, who will be truthful with you about the areas you excel and the areas you need to improve.  Take on board the feedback you receive, even if it hurts, disappoints you or makes you angry.  Trust me, when you have a chance to really digest that feedback, you will see the relevance in what’s been shared.  Find yourself some professional and personal role models who have similar values, so when things get tough, you have support.

And when you make decisions that don’t seem to be turning out for the best, don’t forget you can always course-correct.  The person who should influence your career and your life the most should be you. Take control of your own destiny – only you can know where you got things right, and where you got them wrong.  When you get things right it’s the best feeling in the whole world, and if you get it wrong, hopefully you learned something about yourself.

Added Benefits for Breastfeeding Working Mothers at CA Technologies

The benefits for new parents at CA Technologies never cease to amaze me. We have beautiful, roomy Wellness Rooms that are private and secure, ensuring a peaceful and welcoming space for pumping. Also, if your child attends a CA Montessori school, you can even take a break from your desk to cuddle and feed them anytime! But I must say, the policy to reimburse breastfeeding working mothers to ship their milk during business trips is one that is particularly unique and applause-worthy. I often write blogs about our work culture through the eyes of various CA employees, but this shipping reimbursement benefit hit a close, personal note for me.

It has been a while now (and a few employers ago) since I was a has-milk-will-travel mamma, but I very clearly remember the frustration involved. I kept a stiff upper lip and only asked for the accommodations I absolutely needed from my employer because it seemed like so few people had been through or understood all of the roadblocks one encounters when facing the demands of both exclusively breastfeeding and traveling for work.

Breastfeeding Working Mothers
The early days of figuring out the balance of exclusively breastfeeding and working full time.

Much more distinct than the fear of forgetting to pack storage bags or a crucial pump part (no, well-meaning and clever co-worker, I can not use an oil funnel instead), was the dread of flying back home. This experience very much hinges on the country, the airport, and the security agent you’ll be dealing with. I had a pretty good routine, understood the policies of the facility, and was prepared with remarks and a printed out set of guidelines from the TSA website for various levels of unwarranted pushback I’d receive:

“This is more than 3.4 oz.”

Yes, it is. I’m allowed to have an exception for breast milk.

“Why do you have all of this breast milk, but no baby with you?”

That’s exactly why I have so much. The baby is not here to drink it, so I needed to pump.

“I have to X-ray the liquids.”

I’d rather you not, but I can pour out a small amount into a separate container for you to test and dispose of.

“You’ll have to check these.”

I’m actually allowed to have this as a carry-on, along with the ice packs. Can you please confirm this with your supervisor?

After a few rounds of this, I figured it would be easier to just ship it back home on dry ice. Then I realized that after the weight of the 5-9 lbs of dry ice needed, on top of the several ounces of milk involved, this could cost around $30-$100 to ship. That adds up!

So, as we enter World Breastfeeding Week, I want to give a special kudos to CA for taking a deeper look into the various needs of working parents and going above-and-beyond to help them balance it all a little more comfortable!

Gender Diversity Is Alive and Well at CA!

By Rachel Ehrlich, Coordinator, Talent Acquisition

Within my first few days at CA Technologies, I began to feel CA’s strong culture of diversity and inclusiveness. I was both delighted and surprised to see programs, trainings and internal policies dedicated to the empowerment of women, the drive towards gender equality and the demand for diversity.  Sitting at my first town hall, I heard the leadership team discuss the importance of diversity and I thought it was the coolest thing ever! CA has done a great job of building and enforcing its diverse culture.

I am proud of the efforts made specifically within my team, Talent Acquisition. It warms my soul when I see an abundance of women’s resumes within male dominated fields such as Finance and Engineering. When these resumes come my way, I can’t help but smile and feel a sense of girl power!

Perhaps most impressive are CA’s practices to ensure pay equity and parity across gender. Although there has been no state legislation put into place regarding screening practices around compensation, CA has taken the initiative to fully implement new policies across the globe.  These practices encompass the pivotal things CA is doing that place them at the forefront of change. With CA’s help, women are breaking down gender barriers in the corporate world. It feels awesome to be a part of this avant-garde initiative! I hope other companies look at our practices and are inspired to follow suit.

Being in my role for several months now, CA Technologies truly continues to project an image of diversity to me.  As a steadfast feminist and women’s right advocate, it feels great to work for a company that values the same ethics. As a woman, I feel like I’m valued equally to my male counterparts and I feel incredibly proud to work for a company that values diversity and inclusion within its walls.

One piece of advice for current or future Women Leaders

Martine’s believes that instead of asking yourself what’s next, consider instead asking, “what do I want my legacy to be and how do I make that happen?”

“You will never be successful unless those around you want you to be, remember the importance of relationships in shaping who you are, how and what you learn and never compromise your values. It is important to have goals but not at the cost of everything else, so challenge and be challenged, ask for help, and surround yourself with people who are great at what they do!”

My female inspiration

Martine has many female and male role models but mentions one of her biggest inspirations is Maya Angelou – an American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist.

“From my career it would be a manager from a previous role, who I am still lucky to call a friend today, she taught me to be fearless, to recognise my value and potential and how to help others to recognise theirs.”
