    Pros

    Great people and lots of talent; exciting products; compensation; Mark T. is an inspiring and genuine leader; if you work in the right office it can be a fun environment

    Cons

    Not enough advancement and development opportunities; it's all about politics; senior management leaving in droves over the last few years; lots of re-orgs and layoffs as a result

    Advice to Management

    Too many changes and turmoil leads to an unhappy and insecure team. Stop the re-org merry-go-round!

    Great Benefits, fairly flexible schedule, industry leader products, many different career paths

    Culture is shifting continuously to a very corporate environment driven by Wall Street stock price. Very political environment, fully drinking the koolaid is necessary to advance.

    Pros

    Willingness to change Free snacks Free fancy coffee Opportunities to move laterally to better fit your skills once hired Work from home one day a week Good age, experience, and gender mix Updated office Gym Paid volunteer days (2 a year) Good 401K, health care and donation matching They really do care about things other than money (volunteering, health, and work/life balance)

    Cons

    Not many, just like anywhere you could get a bad manager, but you have many opportunities to change position if this is the case. Lower salaries sometimes causes the best talent to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Trust your employees to keep doing well.

    Pros

    Great company that is big but still has so much room for more growth. Nice people. Great benefits. Work-Life Balance. Offices all over the world. Chance to grow professionally. Pays well in many areas.

    Cons

    Leadership is isolated and does not create next generation leaders from within. Prefers to bring in outsiders from big name companies who don't do much, vest in peace and hold QBRs that lead to no results and then leave for greener pastures. Poor operational and organizational structures and systems internally that are a nightmare to work with. It's harder and harder to get things done at Citrix and many people are just meeting planners and do very little to drive sales or innovation. Development teams are divided and work at cross purposes and this impacts getting cohesive products released quickly. A lot of good people are leaving or have left. Very, very, very sad as this is one of the greatest software companies of all time.

    Advice to Management

    Ask the Directors and people who actually do work what needs fixing and listen to them. 2) eliminate the oligopoly RSU model whereby 90% of all stock goes to VPs while profit sharing promises go unfulfilled to the rank and file, 3) focus the company of selling and key initiatives and make your leaders lead. No one sees the "leaders" anymore. 4) get rid of the meeting planners and fat cats and promote from within but not Innovex people. They have done enough damage 5) stop running Citrix like a private company and distribute power so that there is a healthy checks and balances system in place.
