    Pros

    A place that challenges its employees but cares deeply for their career growth

    Cons

    Some people are such "doers" that they can step on others by doing their jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More leadership training as your managers are very young

    Pros

    Free lunches, snack and employees

    Cons

    All politics. It's a revolving door and your sales for the first 90 days are out of your control. You do the prospecting and depend on the sales closers to execute the deal. The closers don't care about your deals considering they have other tasks they are responsible for. It's like a corporate college.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers who actually like their job and know what they are talking about. Stop hiring friends or friends of friends. Qualify your applicants more thoroughly

    Pros

    Good technology in the NetScaler product.

    Cons

    Where do you start,,, culture of confrontation. Very hierarchical though they claim they are not,, there lies another issue,, misinformation. They tout Work/life balance, but their idea is work becomes your life. They make you feel like they created the company and you are just lucky enough to benefit from their work... no team culture, more Us(employees of 4 + yrs) and them(new employees).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consulting Services is broken and you either don't know it or don't care.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Citrix is a great company to work for...

    Cons

    I worked for ShareFile, they do not share the same principals as Citrix, they start everyone as a appointment setter and they will fire you or highly encourage you to resign if the sales people do not convert your appointments into sales, they have a very high turnover rate. During my time there 4 months over 15 people had been let go and not one person advanced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    adopt the Citrix way of doing things.

    Pros

    CEO is a great leader who has a passion of Citrix. Good marketing and market leadership. Citrix understands that they need to branch out beyond their core competency and taking steps to do so but not fast enough. The next few years will determine if they can stay independent or get acquired.

    Cons

    Extremity arrogant front line management who place their own goals first and don't back their people. Sales management is more interested in letting issues play themselves out vs taking action, too focused on "managing up." They don't lead by example.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    make sure your managers are doing more than just collecting a forecast,
