    Pros

    citrix treats us like we're valuable, human beings unlike most S. Florida companies. The pay is extremely competitive. And the benefits are great. They offer a flexible work environment and give you plenty room to explore and innovate. They hire talented people who for the most part carry their own weight+.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management. Lack of communication and collaboration between divisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get over the politics. Do what's right for the company, not for your ego.

    Pros

    -Citrix pay's very well.
    -The work environment is very good.
    -The benefits are also good.
    -THey have a gym on campus.
    -They have a cafeteria on campus
    -a lot of opportunity to grow
    -feel like you're a part of something big

    Cons

    The training (for my position, tech support) was lacking. They are more eager to get bodies in the door than really train you to do well in the position. Very much a sink or swim mentality. However, they are gracious through the process and are upfront that they are that way. It just won't suit everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are AWESOME!

    Great experience for an intern

    I have been working at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Very relaxed work environment, but with employees who do not slack off. As an intern, It is nice to be given relevant work to do that has a direct impact upon my team's success.

    Cons

    Sometimes I will finish all of the work assigned to me and have nothing to do, but I am not in a structured intern program, so that is no surprise really.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Been at Citrix for 6 months. So far so good. A rough start coming in to a new sort of role.
    Had very little help to get going. Besides that which is more department specific, Citrix does a good job with onboarding, employee training, etc.

    CEO seems honestly interested in employee satisfaction, benefits are great. From day one they give you the opportunity to plan your career path.

    Great benefits, healthcare still slightly expensive for a large company.
    Good PTO

    Cons

    Few public holidays, but they make up with it on PTO
    Not true to the work from anywhere promises. They leave it up the manage and from what I see, unless you are in sales, managers are not really up for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you advertise a benefit, make sure its truly offered.
