    Citrix - Raleigh

    Success Manager (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsExcellent 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.

    ConsTraining 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 Senior ManagementIncrease budget for compensation to maintain, and attract, talent top talent

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

    Great Internship Program

    Intern (Current Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsVery relaxed atmosphere, very nurturing of its interns. I feel as though I can get involved in whatever I want, if it interests me. No one really cares when I show up or leave, so long as I am getting my work done.

    ConsNot a lot of supervision/oversight. I feel as though I could profit from someone telling me what to do more, rather than going out and finding work, myself.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus more on innovating in terms of new products and services, rather than expanding the largest possible market share.

    Very Casual yet Professional

    BI Analyst (Former Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsLots of people on the team from different backgrounds academically and ethnically. Great environment for people starting their professional career. Room for growth.

    ConsSometimes a little slow to change. Lots of layers in decision making. Being a tech company internally it can sometimes feel a bit antiquated. Would imagine the company to be a lot more agile in managing change.

    Know your path and make connections

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat leadership and direction; great benefits; great people to work with; family friendly organization.

    ConsSome nepotism blocks deserving advancement for employees that have invested time.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement needs to review resumes and skills of their employees to guide them in the right direction to the benefit of the team. Management should have small or one on one meetings with underlings, not just their direct staff. ( quarterly conversations)

    XenDesktop Escalation Engineer

    XenDesktop Escalation Engineer (Current Employee) Fort Lauderdale, FL

    ProsFlexibility, Mobility, Free Snacks, Free Coffee, Competitive pay and Happy Employees!

    ConsLong drive for Miami people. Project management also needs to improve.. Contractors that are brought to hire needs to stay for a very long period of time as contractor before they can open the position and offer them to stay permanent. Contractors are treated like second class citizens and many times they are not even invited to corporate events or have access to flexible schedules (Not sharing the culture with Contractors that perform more than regulars, discourage new talent to stay at the company and seek elsewhere).

    Advice to Senior ManagementEngage more with your team, you may be busy in meetings but we are also attending the business.
