    Pros

    Work Life balance, Freedom to work, leadership by the CEO, Company culture - very employee friendly, values personal integrity.

    Cons

    Slow promotions, quality of products can be better, not as aggressive as it should be, does not understand a "platform" - at least the sales team does not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important to communicate or have a clear career path - it is missing specially for the Pre - Sales people

    Pros

    Great work-life balance overall. A lot of good leadership is also present.but few bad fish dilute the benefits and stop Citrix from really taking off.

    Cons

    Most of the products are losing the race which means one can not blindly follow the leadership but has to be critical of their decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in HR. The company image is not really a match for the real potential.
