Pros – Work from home option is good.
Initial compensation was good.
BYOC & BYOD option helps resolve issues faster.
Cons – No 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 Management – Open up free forums for employees to discuss.
Improve Employees Motivation.
Give everyone a fair chance

“Work Environment is good, Very poor job responsibilities. Low increment rate. Highly discontented employees”
Pros – Good working environment.
relatively low pressure
Cons – Very 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 Management – When 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
Pros – Good 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.
Cons – poor 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 Management – Quality 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

Pros – Free food, pickup, drop off, good technology.
Work life balance.
Onsite opportunities depending on the team.
Cons – COL 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 Management – Team 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.
