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.

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.

Fantastic leadership and great working experience

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Citrix Systems full-time

ProsDirect managers really listen to you and motivate you to grow. Weekly meetings to review progress, and managers take time to tell you what opportunities are available in the company.

ConsTakes some time for you to move upward, but it is worth.

Advice to Senior ManagementCitrix Systems managers, keep doing what you do best; inspire your teams and overachieve!

Been really good to me

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Santa Barbara, CA

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

ProsI started as an inside sales rep and moved up through outside sales into management. The company has been very good to me and I have learned a TON! Truly the best company that I have worked for.
Great pay (if you get to 100% of plan)
Great work-life balance
Great development

ConsGoing through transition right now with new EVP of SaaS division so there is some uncertainty
Quota goal is difficult to attain for some
Some products, although very good, are a little dated

Advice to Senior ManagementStay the course that you are on with the changes in place
Allow for more remote workers in sales
