    I have been working at Citrix Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    A truly innovative compnay that makes it possible to balance work and life. A business minded and design driven company that is leading change and inpiring others. Citrix has a warm and collaborative culture designed for employess to achieve above and beyond their full potential.

    Cons

    The uncertainty one can feel at times about becoming a permanent employee after contracting for over a year is a bit unsettling at times. A contractor position is a great way to get your foot in the door at this amazing company yet waiting to become permanent can take longer than expected.

    Pros

    Citrix is the first place I've worked that doesn't have duds. What I mean by that is all of the people that work there are worth their weight. Aside from that I appreciate the management style they promote and the availability to think freely.

    Cons

    No on site child care

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    Great team and culture, supportive management, amazing products that I truly believe in along with the most flexible work life balance that I've ever experienced. Also free drinks and snacks in all corporate buildings.

    Cons

    Large company so things take time to get through approval process because it has so many levels to go up and get signed off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating and keep the foot on the gas. Don't give VMware a chance to catch up.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    Broad product tech catalog.Wide range of products from their VDI to Networking to GoToMeeting. Lots of diversity in the company.

    Cons

    They grow by acquisition so there are lots of different cultures being mixed into one culture. The initial Citrix from Fort Lauderdale seems to be a great place in a low-tech community in Florida but haven't made the jump into Silicon Valley that well.

    Doesn't Recommend
