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

    Pros

    - Great work life balance, its totally up to you to decide how much extra work you want to do. - Good learning opportunities.

    Cons

    - Priorities change too often. - Too many re-orgs, makes employees feel doubtful and after a point they stop caring about the work they do.

    Advice to Management

    Please dont change directions too often with every high level management change that happens with in the company. Still to a plan for at least some time to see if its working or not.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Innovative and team oriented company that allow careers to grow and develop. Mobility is encourage so it is relatively easy to fine tune your skills with what business needs. Products are really cool and there is a lot of opportunity if you have the leadership spirit.

    Cons

    Due to market changes there is a lot of pressure for share results. Citrix is working on implementing restructuring and that is causing good talent to leave the company, but the side effect is more opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Continue transparency on restructure. Continue focus on One Citrix vision. Implement better SDLC and focus on product sun-setting so company is not holding back.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    - Young and fun co-workers - Potential to make decent money - 4 weeks of PTO is nice on paper - Reputable name to put on your resume - Well-defined career path/great place to start your career - Still an industry leader

    Cons

    - Culture of heavy partying and drinking - Technology is still relevant but not as modern or robust as it once was - If you are in sales, prepared to feel like a book of business and nothing more - 8:30 - 6 may be "work hours", but be prepared to live at the office, especially end of month/quarter/year (hope you like staying at the office until midnight on NYE) - Despite company core values, no work from home/flex options for sales team

    Advice to Management

    Cut the Wolf of Wall Street act. While similar sized companies like Salesforce and Google empower their employees and trust them to get their work done, you resort to the opposite. Let your sales team work the way they most feel comfortable, provided they hit their numbers.
