    Pros

    Very structured company with good products.

    Cons

    Structured but not organized. The usual suspect: people not a fit for their role responsibilities in their position. Favoritism abounds throughout the company with people competing for the right to be in the 'in' crowd. Felt like an outsider most of the time. Not much communicating between the middle levels of management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire people that are a cultural fit besides being the right fit for the position.

    Pros

    I worked at Citrix for a little over a year in Customer Care. They pay well above average for this position, the benefits are far above average (30 days paid time off per year, 401k matching, work from home, discounted car rentals, movie tickets, great insurance etc.) but the best part of this job is the company culture. Our office has 1400 people in it yet somehow it feels like a tight knit family. Everyone is kind, accepting, motivated and smart. You never feel down when your at work.

    Cons

    The Customer Care phone lines for Citrix products are open 24/7, so sometimes people can end up with wacky schedules (even though they are consistent) however you generally get some say in when you work. Believe it or not, there are people that enjoy the graveyard shift.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Citrix is the best company I've ever worked for and that is mostly due to the vision behind how the company is run. You really care about your employees, so please don't change that!

    Pros

    Treat employees very well and allow folks to work from homes which is also convenient. Fairly flat organization also makes direct communication simpler.

    Cons

    Calcified at the top end of the company. Multiple acquisitions taken together are not necessarily coherent. Encourage remote working however reward folks in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Become much clearer in outlining the company strategy. Salary and benefits are competitive for a company this size however folks need to clearly understand the mission and realize that the company is going to invest to win.

    401k is a little weak compared to what I have received in the past Compensation is below industry competitors

    Goodplace to work...good culture...management are polite and knowledgeable....

    Like everywhere there are some good and bad managers. There are employees who aren't motivated to develop themselves and still complain about the way things are. The proactive folks do really well.

    Pros

    Decent salary for south Florida.

    Cons

    Incompetent middle management put in place by cronyism. If upper management doesn't fully clean house, company will continue in its current downward spiral.

    Pros

    -Overall: Company as a whole is a great place to work. Citrix has a wonderful employee culture with trust, flexibility, and appreciation for the employees. -Free healthy snacks -Free coffee/tea -Newly updated office space/decor allow for a positive work atmosphere. -Overall, great team members/peers

    Cons

    The Order Management department is continuing to spiral down hill and has become toxic. -Sr. Manager is a micro-manager that does not trust any of the team members that actually do the work. He continues to raise expectations without any empathy, appreciation, or respect for the team members. -All work and NO PLAY structure in place. -No allowance for flexibility. -Manager believes he is more superior than the rest of the team and does not embrace Citrix's culture or core values. -Manager has his own agenda in mind and will sacrifice morale in order to prove his worth. -Manager is disrespectful, constantly changing his mind, and does not provide clear, solid direction for the team.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that people are diligently working to meet the goals - NOT ROBOTS!
