    Vice-President

    Current Employee - Vice-President in Mountain View, CA

    I have been working at Citrix Systems (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Led the industry for years with a very people-first message for how technology can benefit employees. Loyal customer base loves the core products.

    Cons

    Huge changes in leadership make understanding priorities very challenging. Elliott is having significant impact on operations and questions abound about company's future.

    Advice to Management

    Shed the non-core products, focus on where growth areas and employee retention. Silicon Valley presence needs a real shot in the arm as its difficult to retain talent amongst other tech companies

    Pros

    Citrix is a good company with a solid current and future spot in tech. If you're looking for a large company feel and benefits, this is for you.

    Cons

    Occasionally shaky management direction and personnel handling can be a bit unnerving at times. Large layoffs every few years has been a trend the last several years.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but please remember that large layoffs and unpolished software releases can hurt perception and tarnish an otherwise great name.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    Citrix has a great culture and CEO Mark Templeton sets a great example, leading the company with passion and compassion. Many cool technologies and though they are not a small company anymore, they have really been trying to keep that small company agility going.

    Cons

    As the hype of VDI has waned, so too have the fortunes (and stock valuation) of Citrix. They've also lost a lot of their top talent since 2013. The ride inside the company is kind-of bumpy right now.

    Advice to Management

    Citrix has many loyal customers and they support them with some great products & technologies. The Citrix portfolio is maybe too widespread right now. May be time to refocus on the core offerings.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    Plenty of technical challenges, teams that span the globe and mission critical projects that are in the works. If you want to feel that you are ready to step up your game and perform in many clutch situations, then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    In order to stay competitive in the market place, there has been a change in upper management which in term has cause a change in company culture in order to meet those demanding goals. If you've tried out for anything, you know that you have to constantly prove that you are worthy of that position. If you are faint of heart, want to coast or can't perform, then this place is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    How do you balance the drive to achieve goals to stay competitive in the market place with the unintended consequences of how those goals are achieved? How do you tell if a person or people are truly performing or just have a good spokesperson?

    Pros

    Great experience, plenty of people to learn from, great work environment, passionate people.

    Cons

    Constant change, re-orgs, process heavy, not customer focused, or focused on delivering customer facing value.

    Advice to Management

    While organisation wide consistency on processes and tools is great, it can impede on how smaller teams want to move fast. There should be a way to allow smaller teams to move fast and maybe not follow the big process until the team is of a certain size.

    Pros

    Great culture, open minded individuals willing to help each other out. Flexible working conditions that are built on trust allow employees to productive without having to always be in the office.

    Cons

    Everyone is so nice, it can sometimes impede progress due to the obfuscation of the word "no". , Split between Florida and Santa Clara locations and working cultures can sometimes make for some unproductive situations. (not always, but sometimes)

    Advice to Management

    A more streamlined executive decision making process would improve execution (and success).
