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

    Pros

    There'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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    The 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.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Amazing and talented people. Location is great. Benefits are well above most packages.

    Cons

    There are so many different areas it's kinda hard to figure out exactly how it's structured. Feels like there are more VPs than employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify, not just the corporate structure but the products as well.

    I worked at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Highly tech, smart people, free food, what's not to like?

    Cons

    The hiring process is just atrociously ineffective. Red tape galore. This in effect turns the company into a private club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the hiring process. Take a look at Google or MS. They don't take forever to determine good candidates.
