Cons

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aggressive and take more risks; Citrix is very well placed to take lead in the cloud and virtualization space. Focus more on innovation and new products.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    The culture and people who work in Citrix are to a very large extent, self motivated and competent. Because of this, the culture is fairly not political. The interviews take atleast a month to close and that shows how serious they are about getting the best people.
    The salaries are very good. The technology is some of the best in town.

    Cons

    Many of the directors in India are not technically good. So, the managers are allowed to do the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop thinking that you are a small garage shop making Netscalers. Citrix is way beyond that. Get technical directors in and don't lose the business you have.

    Too much politics gnawing at the foundations

    I have been working at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    - Great products and great technology
    - Great technical crew in the trenches
    - Excellent leadership by Mark Templeton (but surrounded by insecure leaders)

    Cons

    - No succession plan in place. After Mark, what? Too many power centers and petty politics, without a single person capable of the necessary vision
    - Doesn't work well with other geos despite expansion. Very US focussed in terms of opportunities and rewards. US teams work hard to prevent other geos from shining
    - Flight of senior management recently is cause of concern. Citrix response was to force another chaotic re-org! (sample this: a key group has a married couple with direct reporting!!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop living in 1990s when Citrix was a small company mainly out of FTL. Realize that a bulk of your people are outside US now, and you must provide them same respect and opportunities as the US folks. Please hire true leaders and not just self-serving managers, before you go back to being a small single-product company
