    Pros

    Overall I have been pretty happy at Citrix. The pay is very good for Fort Lauderdale and the work is interesting. They have free drinks and snacks which is a plus. I have been fortunate to work with co-workers who are easy going and we work well together as a team.

    Cons

    Unlike other tech firms, Citrix does not provide their employees with stock grants. Also, good engineers sometimes get overlooked over others because they are on lower visibility projects.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency. Let your employees really know what is going on instead hiding the truth. Also, don't overlook the fact that while it might be harder to get top talent in South Florida, those that work here will generally be loyal and stay with the company for many years.

    Pros

    Good benefits, reasonable performance RSU's given at Director level, Products in most BU areas

    Cons

    Very stuck in traditional IT mentality, not able to fully embrace changes such as Internet Of Things, Lacking features and technology differentiators in some products

    Advice to Management

    Need to get better aligned with where the industry is going. Reorganizations and staff reductions will mandate this more than ever. Cannot keep relying on XenDesktop to carry the company (proving to be obvious now is 2015)

  3. Love the people and the technology

    Pros

    Great culture and i enjoy the people and what we are trying to do. Work better, live better.

    Cons

    Some of the long-time Citrix employees should be cycled out to get more talent in house and leverage best practices versus doing things the way that they have always been done. Sometimes # of years experience at Citrix is valued more than people who have far more experience but from working at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    People are resistant to change and sometimes change is necessary for growth and innovation especially as the competition is heating up.

    Pros

    Good place to work.
    One can just continue to work on the same thing for years

    Repetitive work
    Growth is a slow process if you are not directly in Product teams

    Pros

    Great technology and lots of cloud computing gurus to learn from.

    Cons

    Cloud technology is nice but when you can't interact with any of your team face-to-face, including your manager it's tough for them to get a feel for who you are and vice versa.

  8. Flexible work/life balance. Too many managers and layoffs

    Pros

    You can work any time anywhere on any devices, thanks to your own products.

    Cons

    The company had good old days with great culture on start-up but now it's too big and very bureaucratic. If your boss is great, you will like working there. Otherwise...

    Advice to Management

    Please respect your people.
