    Pros

    Goodplace to work...good culture...management are polite and knowledgeable....

    Cons

    Like everywhere there are some good and bad managers. There are employees who aren't motivated to develop themselves and still complain about the way things are. The proactive folks do really well.

    Pros

    -Overall: Company as a whole is a great place to work. Citrix has a wonderful employee culture with trust, flexibility, and appreciation for the employees.
    -Free healthy snacks
    -Free coffee/tea
    -Newly updated office space/decor allow for a positive work atmosphere.
    -Overall, great team members/peers

    Cons

    The Order Management department is continuing to spiral down hill and has become toxic.
    -Sr. Manager is a micro-manager that does not trust any of the team members that actually do the work. He continues to raise expectations without any empathy, appreciation, or respect for the team members.
    -All work and NO PLAY structure in place.
    -No allowance for flexibility.
    -Manager believes he is more superior than the rest of the team and does not embrace Citrix's culture or core values.
    -Manager has his own agenda in mind and will sacrifice morale in order to prove his worth.
    -Manager is disrespectful, constantly changing his mind, and does not provide clear, solid direction for the team.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that people are diligently working to meet the goals - NOT ROBOTS!

    Pros

    Each department had team leaders that were always available for consulting and scalating cases. Also, they promoted cross communication between all departments to quickly resolve clients inquiries and requests.

    Cons

    Citrix lacked a more complete training program. It has a high turn over rate. Also, the company needs to promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be able to have an edifying conversation with their employees in regards to the company's goals and goals for each role.

    Pros

    Very solid product to sell.
    Great corporate culture.
    Compensation.
    Growth opportunities.
    Solid management team.

    Cons

    No "work from home" option for Inside Sales.

    Micro management (from VP level) cloaked as a never ending "Sales Contest". While it is definitely good structure for the new reps having every possible sales metric tracked daily and displayed on a stack ranked scoreboard it can be a bit much for the seasoned reps, especially when combined with mandatory detailed Weekly Reports that must be prepared outlining the same metrics plus every other sales activity you've performed the part week.

    Advice to Management

    How about letting the Senior TM's work from home a day or two (or more)? It would not only make us ecstatic but it would give the new reps something to strive for!

    Ease up just a bit on the micro management and you'll increase employee satisfaction considerably. Better yet, just keep the metrics visibility for the management team and coach the under performers during their weekly 1 on 1.

    Pros

    Fort Lauderdale Campus in a great environment to physically work from. Amenities such as free drinks and snacks throughout the day are great, working from home when needed is great. Mark T. appears to really care about the employees and the company overall.

    Cons

    You must build a personal network to be successful. I left because upper management (VP and higher) displayed a lack of connection with their workforce, and a strong connection among themselves. As a manager, you can be asked to make a difficult decision for the wrong reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Mark has made some significant changes at the C level, keep it up and take it down a level or two into your organization to help make Citrix a number one career choice for anyone.

    Pros

    Having your schedule be so flexible is priceless, Citrix excels in this aspect. The atmosphere is more laid back and the employees generally reflect that.

    Cons

    Salaries are in general lower than other places i've been and heard from, and benefits aren't the greatest, though they are competitive enough. The company has been going through changes so your job title changes and departments mix and it's really difficult to move up the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clear paths for your employees to advance their careers

    Pros

    Citrix is a great company for career minded individuals who are good team players. We have a unique culture where most people truly work to do their best. We use our own products all the time making it easy to advocate for them both internally and with customers.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of restructuring this year and that can be a challenging environment to come into. It can also mean great opportunities exist.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the vision alive.
