Great technology, good place to work, but…

Territory Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time

ProsOverall good culture, team members go out of their way to help a newbie out and get the lay of the land. Managers try to keep a high energy on the sales floor, as well as plan events and outings every so often for team building.

Great benefit packages, employee stock purchase plan, 401k, etc.

ConsHQ is very political. How well you get along with management is influential in your ability to gain access to additional training/growth opportunities.
Although the technology is great, the inside sales team rarely has the opportunity to take advantage of the work-life balance that Citrix genuinely sells to customers through the solutions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great work life balance and huge growth opportunities.

Senior Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsThey really care about you and your work life balance. Everyone here is extremely helpful and truly act as a team. I have never seen anyone here that is not willing to take the time to help another engineer.

The growth potential is endless. I started in support 2.5 years ago and have seen any engineer with any drive and motivation to be able to move into whatever position they chose. We have had Engineers move into escalation, test, Sales Engineer, TRM and management in just a matter of a couple of years. The sky is the limit if you have the drive to put in the work to get to where you need to be technically.

ConsIt is such a large company that change and promotions do take some time because of the entire line of managers that have to approve the change. This is expected with any company this large though.

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

Loving every minute I work at Citrix.

Software Test Engineer (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

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

ProsGreat work/life balance. Always new technology to learn and get your hands on. Challenging workplace with great support from teams.

ConsNot much to say here. Downward communication from management could be more open and transparent, but it's still quite good.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great place to work!

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I have been working at Citrix Systems as a contractor for less than a year

ProsAmazing and talented people. Location is great. Benefits are well above most packages.

ConsThere are so many different areas it's kinda hard to figure out exactly how it's structured. Feels like there are more VPs than employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify, not just the corporate structure but the products as well.

Buyer Beware

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

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

ProsOnsite benefits and perks are better than most large companies in South Florida.

ConsThe culture has declined significantly in recent years. The best people are overworked, burned out and ready to leave. The company rewards mediocre performance and values politics over results.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
