    Pros

    Work from anywhere. This is a great company that allows you to truly balance work and life in a way that I've not experienced anywhere else. The culture is highly innovative as well.

    Cons

    Is the culture too innovative? It may be. Many acquisitions made by the company failed to yield any real fruit. There are certainly exceptions such as NetScaler and GoTo, but there are many more dead ones that lay it the wake of Citrix. The board should have gotten an operational/execution CEO who has taken a company in excess of $5-10B. Mark T is a great visionary though.

    Advice to Management

    We need a CEO that can execute, not just a visionary

    Pros

    Fantastic company to work for, great benefits, great people. Fantastic work-life balance benefits, relaxed culture, cutting edge technologies. Fantastic people. I made some great lifetime friends while working at Citrix.

    Cons

    As any other large organization you have some level of politics that might get on the way of your work. Stay out of it and execute your job right. Work over the weekend as any other infrastructure team. Changes that can't impact the business need to go in after hours and over the weekend.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, you are your own boss, lots of areas to learn

    Cons

    Sometimes the ELT team makes the wrong decisions based solely on numbers , and not facts.

    Advice to Management

    Real talents are hard to find and train up. Losing your key talents to competitors like VMware is not a good idea.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance and benefits. The flexibility to work from anywhere and never have to comprise family commitments is priceless.

    Cons

    The typical corporate politics existed in my department. Everyone was out for themselves with incompetent management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the best talent and not just the people that act the part. There are plenty of people actually doing the work that deserve to be in those positions.

    Lots of fun, great leadership and hands on training! Great opportunity to make amazing paychecks! Never a dull moment.

    Cons

    It can be a revolving door and they give you never know if you will have a job next month...

    Pros

    Great management that cares about employees. Did small perks including bringing in fresh fruit on Fridays. Good benefits and most employees were very happy with their career paths.

    Cons

    Some employees seem to take advantage of the relaxed atmosphere but I understand many of those employees were laid off subsequently.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care about the morale of your employees, foster new talent, and provide employees a feeling of ownership of their positions. You have a great company with great leadership.

    Pros

    Young, smart people. Good culture.

    Cons

    Constantly rotating leadership. In my 2.5 years there I had 2 managers, 5 directors/VPs, each with different philosophies. Just when I got used to one management style, another came in. Layoffs right after I left.

    Advice to Management

    STABALIZE!
