    Pros

    Willingness to change
    Free snacks
    Free fancy coffee
    Opportunities to move laterally to better fit your skills once hired
    Work from home one day a week
    Good age, experience, and gender mix
    Updated office
    Gym
    Paid volunteer days (2 a year)
    Good 401K, health care and donation matching
    They really do care about things other than money (volunteering, health, and work/life balance)

    Cons

    Not many, just like anywhere you could get a bad manager, but you have many opportunities to change position if this is the case.
    Lower salaries sometimes causes the best talent to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Trust your employees to keep doing well.

    Pros

    I worked at Citrix for a little over a year in Customer Care. They pay well above average for this position, the benefits are far above average (30 days paid time off per year, 401k matching, work from home, discounted car rentals, movie tickets, great insurance etc.) but the best part of this job is the company culture. Our office has 1400 people in it yet somehow it feels like a tight knit family. Everyone is kind, accepting, motivated and smart. You never feel down when your at work.

    Cons

    The Customer Care phone lines for Citrix products are open 24/7, so sometimes people can end up with wacky schedules (even though they are consistent) however you generally get some say in when you work. Believe it or not, there are people that enjoy the graveyard shift.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Citrix is the best company I've ever worked for and that is mostly due to the vision behind how the company is run. You really care about your employees, so please don't change that!

    Pros

    Very fast paced environment. Never working on the same thing for too long. Lots of room to grow professionally. The people make the company fun to work at. Great compensation for all.

    Cons

    Upper management seems to have ADHD with priorities. You should expect to be unclear with high-level business priorities, leading to frequently changing requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy and stick to it. It is difficult to see the results of your changes without waiting some time.
