I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Very diverse group of people. Smart, fun, eager to network and collaborate.
Flexible WFH (work from home) policy; great for parents or people with medical needs.
Great mentors available.Cons
Death by PPT. Meeting-heavy culture, especially if leadership is based in FL (HQ). Different groups don't collaborate like they should, let alone share their findings. Too much red tape and politics.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Start setting up informal collaboration sessions a la Toastmasters. Get people to collaborate on Citrix and non-Citrix ideas. The point should be to break everyone out of their shell.
Institute a meeting "budget" based on employee S-level. If lower tier employee, total of 4 hours per week. This forces management to be more judicious with scheduling meetings.
Always have someone take notes or meeting isn't valid. Should be mandatory. Always have meeting agenda sent with invite.
Number one: you need 360 degree feedback. Employee should be able to review her manager and report to senior leadership, even the org VP/SVP, in performance reviews.
One component of MBO should be "Alleviate a common frustration of your team." The manager should strive to hit this MBO every quarter.
Managers should not be managing projects for the first 12 months or 4 COMPLETED (not aborted) projects; use dedicated PMs or assign individuals as PM leads to build PM skills.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookApproves of CEO
