    Pros

    appeared to have well defined organization structure.

    Cons

    new management was terrible. management was ill structured and had no leadership. more about politics and did not trust its employees.. programs had no substance which was due in part to the management team in place

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    The work culture at culture at Citrix is its greatest feature. Even as a remote employee they make a strong effort to make you feel like a valuable team member. Recently they held a team building and training even in New Orleans flying in staff from around the country. It really reinforced the sense of comradery and reinforced our importance within the company. Training is offered in abundance and they allow plenty of paid time to take advantage of it.

    Cons

    As with most tech jobs things move fast. Sometimes I feel like the flash I am running so fast.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your focus on team building it is one of the qualities that I appreciate most.

    Pros

    Young group of individuals, always looking to have fun when not working, and make work fun while working. You travel a lot and get to see a lot of the country and learn at such a fast pace it can become stressful at times, but worth it. Citrix pays for all certifications you want as long as you can deem them necessary. Weekly company get together's. Holiday parties!! Managment really cares about you and makes sure you are comfortable with who you are working with, where you are working, and takes any criticism to heart. Citrix has some of the brightest people you will ever meet!

    Cons

    Takes a toll on your personal life due to the amount of travel. A lot of inter-office competition.

    Pros

    Always proud to work for Citrix, they have a good name and the management at the top is good. The product is rock solid and easy to sell. Engineering backs up the field. If needed, there is a good life/work balance and the benefits seemed pretty good at the time.

    Cons

    Local management can be pretty horrible, it all depends on whom you report to. At some places managers can yell and it is all about making money. Your past performance has no baring on how you will be treated in the future.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home. I'm able to balance personal and professional life. Great medical benefits, tuition reimbursement, the people at Citrix are friendly and nice to work with.

    Cons

    There are sometimes few advancement opportunities, and there are a lot of deserving and qualified individuals. Despite this, I personally feel this is a good company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    When new products or features are launched, there should be a training process that is always parallel to the launch dates.
