    Good Work-Life Balance Option

    Software Test Engineer II (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsWork from home option is good.
    Initial compensation was good.
    BYOC & BYOD option helps resolve issues faster.

    ConsNo scope for internal growth.
    Yearly compensation is really bad and not upto expectation at all.
    Too lazy management to listen to employees.
    No process for internal communication.
    Workplace has become more like a Services company style, with no space to move, walk or discuss without bumping into others.
    Motivation factor is at its worst.
    Employee comments goes into deaf ears of Management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOpen up free forums for employees to discuss.
    Improve Employees Motivation.
    Give everyone a fair chance

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Can try joining with a backup offer :D

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    Pros- Brand Name for products
    - Freshers can get an entry .
    - free junk food (which is not free but included fixed in ur salary)
    - WFH option with reports on what you do at home ;)

    Cons-worse than service company.- atleastin service companies 9 hrs login, here no limit.
    - No transparency
    - Have to work late hours and weekends
    - Cab facility-is the biggest torture on day to day basis.
    - You can try with a backup offer,so in 1-2 weeks you can get ready to move.I had already made a move

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work Environment is good, Very poor job responsibilities. Low increment rate. Highly discontented employees

    Software Development Engineer II (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsGood working environment.
    relatively low pressure

    ConsVery poor job . Most people in India do debugging. And that is too very pathetic.
    Salary at the time of joining is good but very less increment percentage over the year. Also increment depends on team does not on individual's competency, or performance.
    Promotion opportunity is also bad. Promotion depends on the tenure of work, not on performance in most cases.
    Lastly you won't want to join this company if you want to increase your skill set, it is fine to join this company if you have already decided to settle down for your life and stay here for really long time.
    For the past few years Citrix has acquired lots of small companies and they need a huge number of employees, hence they are on a recruitment rampant for few months. As a result there are a lots of people here now with whom you would not like to work,

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you recruit people from some premier engineering colleges in India you must give them some work worth of their potential, not some silly debugging jobs. Lots of people (IIT, IT-BHU, NIT, JU ) have left company for this and many more will leave. And there should be a transparency on how you assign one individual to a prticular team.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good place to work for, depends on team

    Software Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsGood work environment
    If your in good team, then quality of work / career growth is great. All depends on the team.
    Good benefits, compared to other companies.

    Conspoor hikes
    No Growth - again depends on the team & product you work for.
    Quality of work depends on the team
    No recognition for your contribution
    Unprofessional attitude of most people

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuality of work and hikes should be same across all teams. Should be more consistent.
    More the people joining india team, too much cost cutting is evident.
    Managers need to be more professional and should stop promoting their favourites

    COL G2P is politics driven management

    Software Testing Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore (India)

    ProsFree food, pickup, drop off, good technology.
    Flexible timings
    Work life balance.
    Social Activities
    Onsite opportunities depending on the team.

    ConsCOL G2P is mostly driven by politics, if you know how to play politics, you can survive, else dont expect career growth or appreciation for technical capabilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTeam Management should encourage technically capable people, and avoid favoritism and politics. Should trust individual team members and let engineers take technical decisions. Top management should identify and interfere with politics of middle, senior middle management, and try not losing very talented people.
