I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

- Very flexible work schedule.
- Working from home options. I work from home twice a week.
- If you do good work, your manager leaves you alone to do your work without micro management.
- Competitive Salary.
- Many opportunities for growth and career development.
- An overall cool environment to work in.
- You can work from anywhere, home, any campus, any office. This is pretty cool.
- People in most part are cool to work with. I've made a lot of friends working at Citrix.

Cons

Can only speak for my experience in my department, and not the entire company:
- Functional teams tend to over protect from each other.
- Sometimes collaboration between different teams is difficult and require senior management intervention.
- Decisions tend to to be very political in nature.
- The main thing I don't like is the reactive nature of some decision makers. But, I can see this behavior in other organizations outside Citrix as well.
- If you're a manager who deals with a budget, you may have a hard time dealing with how the budget is done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The CEO is excellent! He is a visionary and a trend setter. He is not just a manager, but a leader. He truly leads the company. All Citrix managers should follow his example within their own functional areas.

    I worked at Citrix Systems as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked in the Fort Lauderdale office and the work culture was excellent. It was an interesting project, my ideas were heard and it made for a good experience. Even though there weren't code reviews, my work in the project was reviewed and I received good feedback and that is essential when you are intern.

    Cons

    Did not get the opportunity to interact with the entire development team on a day to day basis as they were in a different office.
