    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.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Citrix is a nice place to work. With Headquarters on both US coasts it's easy to transition or transfer to another desired state to live in. Good pay and the team culture is awesome too.

    Cons

    Citrix doesn't pay their sales reps as much as many other companies in the industry. Many employees get promoted to the position they want and then take the same position elsewhere for more money.

    Advice to Management

    I'd recommend paying the reps more so that they don't think about leaving as soon as they talk to others in the industry with the same job. Other than that, you're doing great.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Citrix is an interesting company with a lot of lines of business, ranging from enterprise to software as a service. They treat employees relatively well, with nice amenities, decent benefits, and a good bit of schedule flexibility.

    Cons

    A lot of innovation at the company comes from acquiring other smaller companies. It is very rare that an internal team can build something significant new and ship it. They do a decent job of keeping the lights on for the products they acquire.

    Advice to Management

    Take some risks and send some small teams off to try new things. You have to break some eggs to make an omelette!

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

    Pros

    Great company atmosphere. There is definitely a work hard/play hard mentality. If you're willing to put in the work there is money to be made and advancement opportunity.

    Cons

    Expectation is 150 calls per day, no excuses. The job is a grind, it is entry level and everything is a numbers game. Support can be lacking and is completely dependent on your manager. Work hours are essentially 9-5 but the expectation is that you have no work life balance, i.e. stay until the job's done.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push training and employee development, it will keep the good ones.

    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
