    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working from home if you lucky.

    Cons

    The worst managers I've ever seen. They will use every dirty trick they can and then deny everything a week later.

    Re Org every 3 months.
    Forget about career growth, this is where your career goes to die.

    I can go on and on, but if you reading this and thinking about joining, do yourself a favor and Don't!

    The most painful thing was watching good smart people getting destroyed by horrible managers and not being able to do anything about it.

    The most useless HR in the industry.

    When I got an offer from a different company, it was my happiest day at Citrix.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you doing, because it doesn't matter anymore, the damage is done.

    can't think of any but have to write something to meet the 20 word minimum quota, so here's an empty description that serves no purpose.
