    I have been working at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Citrix offers industry comparative benefits and pay. They focus on work life balance which is proven by their ability to allow working from home when appropriate for the position. They also invest highly in training employees for their current and future rules in the company.

    Cons

    Layoffs, although a cost of working in the public sector are frequent and don't always follow logic and are often politically motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that decisions made are based on sound business and not on the desire to save a particular team member that may not know the role they are being put in to save their job.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Citrix hires experts and individuals who are looking to make a difference

    Cons

    They systematically alienate and devalue employees until they quit
    They have taken away most flexible work programs, meaning they do not practice what they preach
    They have detrimental turnover and re-orging, so teams are constantly having to play "catch up"
    They hire multiple agencies with no real cohesive strategy resulting in duplication and confusion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be amazing to see management really take an interest in their employees and truly nurture/empower their many skills while encouraging visibility for their team members.

    Pros

    Work life is great and opportunities for being a part of innovation and industry leadership initiatives are in abundance.

    Cons

    This company has no loyalty to its employees. Watch your back about every 5 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to be driven by the care and commitment to your most precious asset (employees) over the leading of Wall-street.

    Pros

    It's a super relaxed atmosphere, a la Silicon Valley. You can wear jeans and work anywhere in three buildings, even at the café if you want.

    Cons

    It can be demanding at times if you're an employee as opposed to a contractor.

    Pros

    Great people, great product, great pay and benefits

    Cons

    Citrix needs to get back its execution mojo. Although products are superior we are losing market share to competitors. A lot of the issues are due to a subculture of middle management protecting its turf and not doing what is best for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on execution and weed out individuals and layers that do not focus on the greater Citrix good.

    Pros

    Good pay, flexibility to work from home, great people and developers at the individual contributor level.
    Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Favors stock price over employees. Would rather have low priced employees in Asia producing poor quality products than highly skilled employees in US and UK producing great products.

    MarkT has lost his edge. New executive team has ruined the corporate culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acquiring companies and misusing their technologies and people. Building up the sites in Asia is not the way to strengthen the quality of your products.
