Citrix Online - A great employer - IF you are politically savvy

Sales Management (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

I worked at Citrix Systems full-time for more than 3 years

ProsExtremely employee focused with a strong emphasis on team work within the corporate facility. Products that work well and can be considered best in class for most of the corporate world. Strong leadership team in product development and production.

ConsIf you work outside the corporate facility or do not have direct connections to those who do work inside, their management is "hit and miss" with some being nurtured to succeed and others simply out in the field. Promotion to management from field positions is almost nonexistent. The products are not cutting edge and the pricing structure is behind some of the competition, however they have a HUGE name that helps pull product through in larger accounts. Higher level management (outside of product development and production) is weaker than would be expected. Many of the people are local therefore the pool of talent from which to pull is smaller.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour overall style and message is that employees are very important but in practice that is not a consistent value held by middle management. infighting between sales divisions is not productive and creates an atmosphere of distrust. Manager support and leadership is poor. If you were to engage a company to aggressively survey employees and provide non-biased feedback with recommendations then put a team together to implement these changes you could increase your bottom line by 20% easily.

Great to work at if you don't mind lonnnggg hours in sales

Associate Corporate Sales Representative (Former Employee)
Raleigh, NC

I worked at Citrix Systems full-time for less than a year

Prosteam environment, relaxed office culture

Consvery aggressive sales goals, started and left company branch in Raleigh, NC. It's a sales grindhouse there, great people and leadership, but very dull and repetitive work. Some people love it, but not for me. Plus, I spent my whole time there calling the same micro segment, or industry "vertical" never having the chance to try anything else. The worst of all, if you start in sales, you will be in sales.

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Best Company EVER!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsThis is the best job I've ever had. The snacks and sodas are free and it's a cool place to work. When you work at Citrix you know that you're working for the best company on earth - and probably in outer space, too. Everyone is knowledgeable and helpful and there are no politics. It's a dream come true.

ConsThe only cons to working here is that there aren't more hours in a day. I would suggest building corporate housing so employees can live/work/play together. I don't know why this hasn't happened yet.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing. The products are innovative and the communication between employees and upper management is refreshing and always positive. There is no need for change.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
