    Bangalore Citrix run by incompetent people

    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values

    Current Employee - Software Engineer II in Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Software Engineer II in Bangalore (India)

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

    Pros

    Flexibility in Timings.
    Close to Brigade Road.

    Cons

    Least bothering HR and power-hungry middle management.

    One of the worst compensation packages and worst Hikes. In fact an engineer who is working in the core development team of Citrix for 3+ years will get a significantly low salary than an Amazon Fresher.

    No travel abroad opportunities for general employees. Only very old timers get this opportunity.

    Neither they pay salaries nor travel opportunities. No wonder this company's attrition rate is going higher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doesn't matter what advice I give it to Senior Management. They are more bothered at checking the stock price daily and feeling happy about how much rich they have grown.

    Your HR is incompetent when it comes to handling Bangalore Dynamics. The Global Employee Survey is indicating it. They are fooling the upper management with statistical lies.

    On lie is this - Most of the positive rating about the company actually company comes from Freshers, new joiners, very old timers, women- who-will-not-leave-no-matter-whatever-you-give. If you get the number of people dissatisfied with compensation and working for 3 or 4 years, you will be surprised.
