    Pros

    Citrix is the first place I've worked that doesn't have duds. What I mean by that is all of the people that work there are worth their weight. Aside from that I appreciate the management style they promote and the availability to think freely.

    Cons

    No on site child care

    Pros

    Great team and culture, supportive management, amazing products that I truly believe in along with the most flexible work life balance that I've ever experienced. Also free drinks and snacks in all corporate buildings.

    Cons

    Large company so things take time to get through approval process because it has so many levels to go up and get signed off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating and keep the foot on the gas. Don't give VMware a chance to catch up.

    Pros

    Citrix is an amazing company to work for they talk alot about culture, but the best part is their employees. The employees are all amazing outgoing friendly people that are highly skilled. Management wants to see you succeed and helps you discover your career path.

    Cons

    I worked as an intern and did not receive much formal training, but the new employee orientation program that they do have I have heard great things about.

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

    Pros

    Good compensation, great people, and an incredible culture that is staunchly protected. This, and the fact that they run their business with the mindset of; "Take care of your people, they take care of the customer and the shareholders are happy as a byproduct" This is not lip service, they live it. There is a reason that Mark Templeton has a 94% approval rating. He is awesome!! I hope that this company doesn't grow up like all of the other Wall St. driven companies. If not, I hope to spend the next 20yrs here.

    Cons

    The fact that I didn't come here 20 years ago..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing

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

    Pros

    Great pay for the amount of work you have to do. I love it because even though they don't have a 20% policy like Google does, informally you can spend as much time as you want to deepen your technology skills - even in areas that are completely unrelated to your work. This kind of forward thinking has led to some of the highest employee satisfaction in the industry/country etc.

    Cons

    I wish they had more Cappuccino machines - as you can tell I can't complain much about my employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't change a thing. I've heard from my dad that Bell Labs used to be like this - focus on long term and not go quarter by quarter - you will have happy employees (and smart ones too) and happy employees will result in great corporate success, profits etc.
