A great place to work

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsThere's a great work-life balance here. With the flexibility afforded the software engineers, it's not difficult to stay motivated and productive. They let the talent shine, which I like. Supportive management team that understands how to manage time, which is rare. Pay and benefits are fair, and the company looks to be headed in the right direction.

ConsThe one area where this fast company is slow seems to be promotions. I'm happy in my current position, but I'm not sure about opportunities for growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe decision-makers are fair, but perhaps a little too thorough. It takes a while for changes to occur here. However, the company is doing a lot of things right and I enjoy working here greatly, so there's something to be said for going through a process that works.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great culture, products, and people. Fun place to work

Bubsiness Development Director (Former Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I worked at Citrix Systems

ProsVery consensus driven and ethical company working in some hot areas of high tech. Flexible work styles that we called "work shifting" to balance work and personal life. Partners loved working with Citrix given the positive reputation for our easy to use products.

ConsDecisions can be slow given the need for buy-in and consensus up the food chain. Lots of disparate applications and systems so pioneering new infrastructure for partners can take awhile.

Advice to Senior ManagementPush down decision-making to lower levels and hold the parties accountable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
