    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Bangalore (India)
    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Good exposure to new technologies introduced by Citrix
    - Good infrastructure
    - Oppurtunity to learn new products

    Cons

    - Probably now the company is one of the best places to work, how Citrix the same does not hold good for Citrix R&D India Private Limited. Do not compare the work culture of Citrix Systems with the indian arm as the management does not believe in ideas coming out of associates rather prefer doing it as directed by parent organization.
    - Work life balance is not good when compared to Citrix Systems especially Support arm of the company needs to add more value to work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stop implementing on whats done in other companies rather do it original and increase productivity.
    - Asking support staff to extend as a part of the job should be stopped.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits including a door-to-door cab service, yearly book allowance etc. Not very rigid org structure and processes. There is always space for doing your own thing within the company.

    Cons

    There is lack of accountability for many teams. Just like anywhere else, you will find teams that are aggressive and then there are teams that just slack around and dont contribute much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360 degree reviews and more objective measurement of individual and group contributions.

    Pros

    Great technologies getting developed, many of them being industry firsts.
    Great work culture
    Good work-life balance
    Overall good place to grow your career technically

    Cons

    Hikes are moderate and promotion it seems depends on number of years you have been working. Food is average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure that appropriate salary is given for high performing and hard working people.With freshers getting more salary and benefits than senior people working out here. It should be scaled. Promotions should be based on quality of work not entirely on experience.
