    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture is strong, with good work-life balance. The products are well respected. Senior management took time to listen to employees and were quite flexible.

    Cons

    If anything, the company may have gotten a little too big. Changes came slowly, and it felt like the company was more worried about acquisitions than what was going on in house.

    Advice to Management

    Don't neglect the products and people who are already under your roof, you've got a good thing going.

    Pros

    Great benefits and cool environment, people tend to be nice even after the last cull, honest pay. Best office location I have never been working at in my whole career.

    Cons

    Very uncertain future ahead, the CEO is retiring and redundancies have been made an year ago with more foreseeable in a short time due to further reorganization plans, there aren't new projects coming but only going out or disappearing. A bit stereotyped working env, where people do not speak much thinking they just need to write code, big egos working on trivial task. A lot of people are living and now the building is semi-desert. Such a pity.

    Advice to Management

    Improve products' quality since the current validation process is not sufficient to follow the needs of a more and more competitive market, try to put in place some decent engineering procedures.

    Pros

    You can make quite a bit of money, the company tries to promote a casual work environment with pool tables/ping pong tables, no dress code.

    Cons

    You are cold calling people who have been called, sometimes, hundreds of times before to try and sell a cloud storage solution that they have absolutely no need for. Most of the management team was promoted up from when they brought ShareFile into the Citrix brand and those people have, for the most part, no business being managers. You will have for high school swim coaches as a manager above you trying to encourage you to give 110% with rhetoric that they havent bothered to change since cheering their swimmers on to beat their rival school.

    Advice to Management

    Reallocate the managers who have no managerial experience into roles better suited to their skill set, increase the rate and reliability of promises made to current employees about transferring them from the sales team to a team that they are better suited to, continue to be honest to your lead generation team about how low of quality the lists you expect them to call 100+ times a day are.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fair salary and fair benefits, good career progression path and reasonable internal training and certification offerings.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance, at least in my position, which involved working at night shifts and sometimes over weekends too.

    Advice to Management

    My direct manager was always actively making efforts to improve our job experience, what is a positive thing. I wished that the senior managers had backed him more actively.

    Pros

    Citrix is world class organization. Work culture is very good.

    Cons

    Management is not good. Do not have enough system resources (such as servers, Storage)

    Advice to Management

    When you acquire any product and hire the employees, do not directly put on the call because it will affect on engineer and company credibility . Look at on VMware, they provide 6 months training on ESXi, good documentation and they have special team to write down KB article
