    Pros

    Best work-life balance of any company
    Vibrant, happy people in many organizations
    Compassion and care in doing the right thing for people
    Market share leadership in two spaces
    Not resting on cash-cow business
    Recognize need to innovate and create great user experiences

    Cons

    Not clear who does what
    Takes too many yes's to get a business case approved and resourced
    Too many great ideas die due to rigid organizational boundaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an innovation board that will approve ideas and ensure they get the support of their landing organization

    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.

    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!

    Pros

    Technology is the only thing that would let you survive and learn

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are less. Management is biased when it comes to providing the opportunity. No work - life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire some technical manager who knows something about product rather than managing people.
