    I have been working at Citrix Systems as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    A truly innovative compnay that makes it possible to balance work and life. A business minded and design driven company that is leading change and inpiring others. Citrix has a warm and collaborative culture designed for employess to achieve above and beyond their full potential.

    Cons

    The uncertainty one can feel at times about becoming a permanent employee after contracting for over a year is a bit unsettling at times. A contractor position is a great way to get your foot in the door at this amazing company yet waiting to become permanent can take longer than expected.

    Pros

    Citrix is the first place I've worked that doesn't have duds. What I mean by that is all of the people that work there are worth their weight. Aside from that I appreciate the management style they promote and the availability to think freely.

    Cons

    No on site child care

    Pros

    Good culture and morale, upbeat business model, enthusiasm and motivation.

    Cons

    Big company, sometimes change comes slowly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to keep morale and excitement in mind while growing the company. You are at the size where sometimes the corporate mentality takes over the human factor. Keep it right!
