    it's a mix of good teams and bad. If unfortunately, you fall into bad ones. You can get stagnant in your career.

    Pros

    Willingness to change
    Free snacks
    Free fancy coffee
    Opportunities to move laterally to better fit your skills once hired
    Work from home one day a week
    Good age, experience, and gender mix
    Updated office
    Gym
    Paid volunteer days (2 a year)
    Good 401K, health care and donation matching
    They really do care about things other than money (volunteering, health, and work/life balance)

    Cons

    Not many, just like anywhere you could get a bad manager, but you have many opportunities to change position if this is the case.
    Lower salaries sometimes causes the best talent to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Trust your employees to keep doing well.

    Pros

    I worked at Citrix for a little over a year in Customer Care. They pay well above average for this position, the benefits are far above average (30 days paid time off per year, 401k matching, work from home, discounted car rentals, movie tickets, great insurance etc.) but the best part of this job is the company culture. Our office has 1400 people in it yet somehow it feels like a tight knit family. Everyone is kind, accepting, motivated and smart. You never feel down when your at work.

    Cons

    The Customer Care phone lines for Citrix products are open 24/7, so sometimes people can end up with wacky schedules (even though they are consistent) however you generally get some say in when you work. Believe it or not, there are people that enjoy the graveyard shift.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Citrix is the best company I've ever worked for and that is mostly due to the vision behind how the company is run. You really care about your employees, so please don't change that!

    Pros

    Good environment
    Good health coverage
    Good people

    Cons

    401k is a little weak compared to what I have received in the past
    Compensation is below industry competitors

    Advice to Management

    Retain top talent by compensating them. Executive leadership turnover has been concerning.

    Pros

    Very structured company with good products.

    Cons

    Structured but not organized. The usual suspect: people not a fit for their role responsibilities in their position. Favoritism abounds throughout the company with people competing for the right to be in the 'in' crowd. Felt like an outsider most of the time. Not much communicating between the middle levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire people that are a cultural fit besides being the right fit for the position.

    Pros

    Treat employees very well and allow folks to work from homes which is also convenient. Fairly flat organization also makes direct communication simpler.

    Cons

    Calcified at the top end of the company. Multiple acquisitions taken together are not necessarily coherent. Encourage remote working however reward folks in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Become much clearer in outlining the company strategy. Salary and benefits are competitive for a company this size however folks need to clearly understand the mission and realize that the company is going to invest to win.

    Pros

    Goodplace to work...good culture...management are polite and knowledgeable....

    Cons

    Like everywhere there are some good and bad managers. There are employees who aren't motivated to develop themselves and still complain about the way things are. The proactive folks do really well.
