Great technology, good place to work, but…

Territory Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time

ProsOverall good culture, team members go out of their way to help a newbie out and get the lay of the land. Managers try to keep a high energy on the sales floor, as well as plan events and outings every so often for team building.

Great benefit packages, employee stock purchase plan, 401k, etc.

ConsHQ is very political. How well you get along with management is influential in your ability to gain access to additional training/growth opportunities.
Although the technology is great, the inside sales team rarely has the opportunity to take advantage of the work-life balance that Citrix genuinely sells to customers through the solutions.

Been really good to me

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Santa Barbara, CA

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI started as an inside sales rep and moved up through outside sales into management. The company has been very good to me and I have learned a TON! Truly the best company that I have worked for.
Great pay (if you get to 100% of plan)
Great work-life balance
Great development

ConsGoing through transition right now with new EVP of SaaS division so there is some uncertainty
Quota goal is difficult to attain for some
Some products, although very good, are a little dated

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course that you are on with the changes in place
Allow for more remote workers in sales

Good company, but still trying to find their way

Sales (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsGood pay and commission, nice benefits, and we sell great products. PTO is also very good and they encourage you to use it. Citrix is great to have us volunteer our time giving back to the community, and not just charities they pick, but support any of our personal charities, as well.

ConsManagement seems lost at times. They bring in outsiders who don't know our business, and when they promote from within, oftentimes, it is not the person who should be promoted. Citrix is constantly changing their policies and organizational structure, making it seem like they are still grasping at straws trying to figure it out, at times. With new Senior Leadership at Citrix SaaS Division, hopefully they figure it out sooner than later.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit changing the structure of the company every 6-12 months. It's hard to get in a groove if you keep shaking up how we do business and our customers do not like having a new rep every time they turn around.

Great company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Citrix Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat technology bolstered by mostly the right acquisitions. Awesome camaraderie in my region with mix of new folks and lifers mixed throughout the company.

ConsExcessive quota increases slapped on top performing reps will eventually force them to look elsewhere to maintain the level of income they are used to.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to take a pulse of your regional management by spending more time in the actual field with sales, channel and engineering.
