    Pros

    Good working environment.
    relatively low pressure

    Cons

    Very poor job . Most people in India do debugging. And that is too very pathetic.
    Salary at the time of joining is good but very less increment percentage over the year. Also increment depends on team does not on individual's competency, or performance.
    Promotion opportunity is also bad. Promotion depends on the tenure of work, not on performance in most cases.
    Lastly you won't want to join this company if you want to increase your skill set, it is fine to join this company if you have already decided to settle down for your life and stay here for really long time.
    For the past few years Citrix has acquired lots of small companies and they need a huge number of employees, hence they are on a recruitment rampant for few months. As a result there are a lots of people here now with whom you would not like to work,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you recruit people from some premier engineering colleges in India you must give them some work worth of their potential, not some silly debugging jobs. Lots of people (IIT, IT-BHU, NIT, JU ) have left company for this and many more will leave. And there should be a transparency on how you assign one individual to a prticular team.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    ~ Employee Friendly environment.
    ~ Good work-life ratio.
    ~ Cutting edge technology and striving to be market leader.

    Cons

    ~ Career growth is not well defined.
    ~ Casual/Laid back attitude with most of the management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    ~ Please stop adopting other org's culture when you know that there are limitations out here, and try to start or nurture a new and prosperous culture. Make this more transparent, and just keeping the door open is not enough. And remain focus on your priorities and organised events/ upcoming schedule much more efficiently, As of now, it's too many cooks spoiling the broth.

    Some new projects could be started from scratch, in addition to what is being done as maintenance/continuation work from the past product/project as there are good number of talented people around looking for new challenges
