    Pros

    Excellent culture. Fosters professional growth, if you are willing to work hard for it. The flexibility of working remote is great. Paid Time Off. Our new building in Raleigh is state of the art. Unlimited free snacks and drinks. You are seen as a professional, able to make your own schedule, and the manage your workload without micro management.

    Cons

    Training can be unorganized for such a large organization. Recently there have been a lot of reorgs within the company, but this has all proven to be for the better for employees and clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase budget for compensation to maintain, and attract, talent top talent

    Pros

    team environment, relaxed office culture

    Cons

    very 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.

    Remote Sales Analyst Intern

    I worked at Citrix Systems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was a remote intern, so my experience is very different from most. I was given a lot of freedom, and did have a tangible impact on the company's (Sharefile specifically) annual revenue. I got to do a bit of "consulting" for them, and eventually hired outsourced employees myself (on the company's bill) and had them do most of the copy and paste for me, while I just managed them.

    Cons

    I felt a lot of my job was repetitive, and involved a lot of copy and pasting stuff into excel sheets. It got better as the summer went along, but initially I was not given very many responsibilities and struggled to fill my hours with meaningful work.
