    Current Employee - Senior Software Development Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * Truly great work life balance
    * Flexible timings. You are supposed to finish your work. Noone bothers when you come in or go out. As long as you finish your work
    * Decent free canteen. Snacks,lunch, breakfast is free.
    * Very good culture. No shouting no putting down of employees. CEO to Director very approachable.
    * If lucky can get to work on Win Drivers, HTML5.

    Cons

    * Pay below market rate
    * Managers are yes men to US-UK Management
    * Work has stagnated. Too much focus on integrating existing products. Less focus on developing new products
    * Hazy roadmap
    * Plunging sales
    * All decisions taken by US-UK management. Indian managers hardly have any say in these matters
    * Promotions are heavily based on budget your group has.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Invest in developing new products
    * Diversify in non-enterprise products
    * Give some autonomy to regional centers (eg Bangalore) to make own decisions,

    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.

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

    Pros

    Exposure to the new technologies.

    Cons

    The management sucks here!! The workstyle has changed drastically. It is no more "fun while working at Citrix".
    The productivity is now measured or basis of the stats. One de-sat and you will be interrogated intensely. This has made engineers to beg for c-sats. Earlier the engineers's qaulity work was enough to convince the customer to provide a positive feedback.
    Learning has come to minimal and the tight schedule adherence is the prime aim.
    The employee retention is very minimal. Many engineers had left which were extremely reliable resource and a boon to the company. I don't know if this is being ignored or if they think they can get the resource immediatley. B.S !!!!
    Even the growth here is very slow. For a postion people are hired from outside, though there are capable candidates for the same position which is disgusting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what an employee wants. An employee works more when his work is recognised and is paid what he deserves.
    Employee retention means something. Work for you company not for yourself !!
