    I have been working at Citrix Systems (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Putting as much thought into how to develop the company as the products. Commitment to develop the people, skills and motivation though out the entire organisation not just for the products but for the ideas and innovation and employees.

    Cons

    Working across the globe has its cons as well as its advantages, this can be challenging at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain clear direction to employees.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    Products are very timely. Lots of runway here. It is also impressive to work at a company that won't bash competitors.

    Cons

    Quality of tech support ebbs and flows, but investments there continue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where are the ownership (stock) benefits?

    Pros

    From what I can see so far (just recently hired), this is going to be an awesome place to further build by career and skill-set.

    Cons

    When I'm there long enough to have a con I'll come back and let you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whatever you're doing right keep doing it. Everyone that I've talked with there seems to love working for you. I hope to be able to drink that Kool-aid too. I've never worked for a place where there was a direct message from the CEO, whether in-person or video recorded, where I got the sense that I could actually grow under his leadership. Mark's video was very refreshing.

    Pros

    They 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.

    Cons

    It 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.

    Pros

    This is the best company to work for in Florida

    Cons

    Some 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 ManagementAdvice

    Encourage good work, and positively motivate people to do so
