Very Political

IT Manager (Former Employee)
Fort Lauderdale, FL

I worked at Citrix Systems

ProsGym on site
Casual Dress (this could also be con if manager)
No Drug test (also con if manager)

ConsLow Morale
Makes changes without consulting employee feedback

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on customer service rather than reinvent internal business IT applications. Use out of box software instead of rewriting code.

As part of an acquisition it never really felt like we were part of the company

Senior Program Manager (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Citrix Systems

ProsWork life balance
Technology impressive.
Stock tends to do well
Mark Templeton the CEO has a charitable and good philosophy about life, and how to run a company.

ConsHeadquartered in Florida sort of podunk mentality compared to other software companies I have worked for. People don't get back to you. Sense of urgency is low.
Working in a small remote office in Redmond was not ideal to be absorbed into the culture.

Advice to Senior ManagementLots of turnover for Product Management. Need a good leader there.
There is a lot of though that has been done on the handling of acquisitions, but for remote offices it is still hard to feel like you are part of the company.
Stay on track with the new focus on UI and UX. It is a good thing.
