    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!

    Pros

    Each department had team leaders that were always available for consulting and scalating cases. Also, they promoted cross communication between all departments to quickly resolve clients inquiries and requests.

    Cons

    Citrix lacked a more complete training program. It has a high turn over rate. Also, the company needs to promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be able to have an edifying conversation with their employees in regards to the company's goals and goals for each role.

    Pros

    Fort Lauderdale Campus in a great environment to physically work from. Amenities such as free drinks and snacks throughout the day are great, working from home when needed is great. Mark T. appears to really care about the employees and the company overall.

    Cons

    You must build a personal network to be successful. I left because upper management (VP and higher) displayed a lack of connection with their workforce, and a strong connection among themselves. As a manager, you can be asked to make a difficult decision for the wrong reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Mark has made some significant changes at the C level, keep it up and take it down a level or two into your organization to help make Citrix a number one career choice for anyone.

    Pros

    Having your schedule be so flexible is priceless, Citrix excels in this aspect. The atmosphere is more laid back and the employees generally reflect that.

    Cons

    Salaries are in general lower than other places i've been and heard from, and benefits aren't the greatest, though they are competitive enough. The company has been going through changes so your job title changes and departments mix and it's really difficult to move up the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clear paths for your employees to advance their careers

    Pros

    - Very good employee benefits - Great office location and amenities - Compensation average for Florida market, but below national averages. - Good products, especially Citrix Online and Netscaler

    Cons

    - Poorly managed company - Middle Management (Managers, Senior Managers, Group Managers, Directors, Sr Directors) is very deficient. Not a lot of talent, abuse of internal promotions (people that started with the company 15+ years ago) that reward friendships and loyalties rather than talent and results. - Favoritism in promotions and salary raises that mines morale and sends the wrong message to employees. - Company has got used to the opposite of lean operations, inflated budgets, demands for increased head count with no clear deliverables, etc. - Very political environment - Directors rarely provide direction to employees (the whole reason they are there IMHO)

    Advice to Management

    - Resolve HR Problems, remove multiple layers of fat in the org charts - Focus on your employees, human capital is your main asset (at par with IP) - Do not allow favoritism, which typically starts at the C level and trickles down. Leadership team should lead by example.It is unforgivable to have executives promote favoritism and boys clubs. - Invite old timers that don't add value into retirement - Streamline the process to fire people that are not going to help Citrix in the long run - Implement LEAN operations across every department

    Pros

    Citrix is a great company for career minded individuals who are good team players. We have a unique culture where most people truly work to do their best. We use our own products all the time making it easy to advocate for them both internally and with customers.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of restructuring this year and that can be a challenging environment to come into. It can also mean great opportunities exist.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the vision alive.

    Pros

    Great ongoing training, smart coworkers, innovative products and a few good company perks here and there.

    Cons

    Management has been recently redirected to approach all sales on a somewhat boiler room style. Tremendous pressure (which to some extent is expected in sales) while slicing and dicing the day with incredible admin work, multiple meetings and a myriad of requirements that significantly distract from the actual mission of the Account Manager. This impacts the individuals success, as well as the quota attainments across the board.

    Advice to Management

    Let your sales people sell. You've trained them very well, the continuing education is there. Comes a time to just step out of the way and trust your people to do what you hired them to do without obsessive micromanagement at all phases.
