    Pros

    Fantastic Benefits, Excellent flexibility, wonderful and friendly people. Not a bad place to work at all! Citrix really values having their employees grow and create new opportunities for their career within Citrix, something I really appreciate.

    Cons

    The building in SF is not the best. There are no windows so it's like you're stuck in a cave with no ventilation.

    Advice to Management

    More and better food. We're a tech company! We should have good food!

    Pros

    Excellent pay and benefits. Hard working, smart teams members with a desire to perform. Excellent vision which lead the company to be a leader in its area.

    Cons

    Execution has been a challenge. While the vision is great ,the path to executing is not clear to middle and line employees. Different groups have different visions which they execute independently of each other.

    Advice to Management

    Get a plan and measure it. Pick only a few projects so that they can succeed. Do not tolerate management or teams that are looking out for their own interests and not the company's or customer's.

    Pros

    You can work from home any time and there are really smart people that work here.

    Cons

    Because a lot of people work from home the office culture is poor. There have been 2 massive layoffs in the last 2 years. People are jumping ship left and right because they are either 1) scared that they will be fired next or 2) sick of doing the work of 2 people because there is so much turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Get your goals straight. Hold people accountable. Care about your employees and have an ounce of loyalty.

    Pros

    Over 100 locations around the world, opportunity is there unless your over 40 or a VP

    Cons

    If your over 40, not a place for you. When layoffs happen, these are the people fired first. Executive Management is complacent and employees suffer. More layoffs to come

    Pros

    Great emphasis on work-life balance, good benefits, pleasant environment, access to discounts in technology and other perks but need to figure it out on you own - not advertised.

    Cons

    Some of the groups are highly political and give a lot more weight to blind loyalty over actual results and performance. The culture varies vastly between departments and groups.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful - you are demotivating your employees by placing too much importance on the wrong things.
