    Former Employee - Program Manager  in  Fort Lauderdale, FL
    Former Employee - Program Manager in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Extremely talented, smart, brilliant people. Great perks, drinks and snacks free (fruit, yogurt, juice, coffee etc). Company subsidized lunch (50%) provided by cafeteria on premise. Great knowledge and networking events.

    Cons

    Be prepared for conference calls and meetings to eat up hours of your day which forces you to skip lunch/eat at your desk or work till 8pm to make up for lost hours! Also, technology makes it convenient to work form anywhere, anytime so sometimes feels like "ball & chain" even when on vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in resources to get your name out there. Lately have seen lots of news everywhere on competitors like VMWare but not much on Citrix!

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent 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.

    Cons

    Training 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 ManagementAdvice

    Increase budget for compensation to maintain, and attract, talent top talent

    Current Employee - Intern in Fort Lauderdale, FL

    I have been working at Citrix Systems as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

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