Great work life balance and huge growth opportunities.

Senior Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

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

ProsThey really care about you and your work life balance. Everyone here is extremely helpful and truly act as a team. I have never seen anyone here that is not willing to take the time to help another engineer.

The growth potential is endless. I started in support 2.5 years ago and have seen any engineer with any drive and motivation to be able to move into whatever position they chose. We have had Engineers move into escalation, test, Sales Engineer, TRM and management in just a matter of a couple of years. The sky is the limit if you have the drive to put in the work to get to where you need to be technically.

ConsIt is such a large company that change and promotions do take some time because of the entire line of managers that have to approve the change. This is expected with any company this large though.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

ProsThis is the best company to work for in Florida

ConsSome people say about management, I don't have experienced anything like that, but I do think that management has a big role on how the company moves on.

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage good work, and positively motivate people to do so

Great Company for College Grads!

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Santa Clara, CA

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

ProsI joined Citrix as a Software Test Engineer when I finished my BS degree, and I've been working at Citrix for almost 2 years. I've had the opportunity to work on several different projects within various product lines. I work with very smart, focused people and have learned a lot from them, but they have learned from me too, and I've seen some of my ideas become reality. I appreciate that they hire young people and respect their opinions. Cloud networking and virtualization is a great vertical, and the company is growing and has a bright future.

ConsYou will work hard! The motto around here is "Work Hard. Play Hard." You will work long hours to complete projects, but you can also take a break and play ping-pong with a co-worker.

ProsGreat work/life balance. Always new technology to learn and get your hands on. Challenging workplace with great support from teams.

A great place to work

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsThere's a great work-life balance here. With the flexibility afforded the software engineers, it's not difficult to stay motivated and productive. They let the talent shine, which I like. Supportive management team that understands how to manage time, which is rare. Pay and benefits are fair, and the company looks to be headed in the right direction.

ConsThe one area where this fast company is slow seems to be promotions. I'm happy in my current position, but I'm not sure about opportunities for growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe decision-makers are fair, but perhaps a little too thorough. It takes a while for changes to occur here. However, the company is doing a lot of things right and I enjoy working here greatly, so there's something to be said for going through a process that works.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
