    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 !!

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

    Pros

    - As a remote employee, I am given enough freedom to learn and research.
    - I work with an US manager who is considerate about my crazy working hours and hence I am able to have a flexible schedule of leaving early, coming late or even working from home.
    - The company is EXTREMELY invested in technology and we always seem to have the latest gadgets.
    - Its a very relaxed environment which makes work less stressful

    Cons

    - In my case especially, trying to reach the mid-point of reporting to a US manager and receiving an Indian salary and designation is a pain. I was expecting to be promoted and it hasn't happened. Its been over 3 years since I started. Culture is a huge challenge.
    - Learning was all done online without the help of a mentor or a manager sitting here. No opportunity was given even to travel as a learning experience.
    - My business group has had so many changes, its been frustrating even though this is not because of my manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers handling remote employees must be asked to understand and work according to the geography of their remote employees
