    Pros

    Citrix is a company that cares about it's customers and it's employees. They offer great benefits and a really awesome culture.

    With any large company, decisions can take a bit longer to make and there are some areas of communication that management could review more.

    Pros

    People really care about each other; from the executive suite and down. Really happy here! It's the first company I've worked at where they actually do care about employees AND customers. It's a 'do the right thing' culture.

    Cons

    Sometimes still operating like a startup with missed communications opportunities. Create a cross-company and cross-product communications structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on the product team to product team communications. One product (which relies on anther) should not have a feature depreciated when it is enhanced in the other product.
