Former Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA
Former Employee - Principal Software Engineer in Santa Clara, CA

I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Wonderful coworkers, and some great first level managers.
Engineering managers (at the levels where I worked with them) have excellent technical ability.
Engineer-friendly culture - being a "geek" is good.
Do a good job of getting rid of the occassional hiring mistake.
Extremely flexible about hours, locations, etc.
Use their own products, which work well for things like remote access
They seem to be good at marketting, profitability, growth etc.
Better than average at integrating acquisitions without destroying their culture/ability to be effective. 3 years ago I would have said "Great at integrating ..."

Cons

Support departments (HR, facilities, IT) are getting bureaucratic, paternalistic, and generally interfering with getting the job done. Uniformity is now trumping effectiveness. This appears to be an ongoing trend - still not at an extreme level, but painful when compared to 5 years ago.
A lot of conference calls between departments separated by 12 hours of time zones (California and India) which generally involve half the participants working in the late evening (9-10 PM) local time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rein in the would-be bureaucrats in facilities etc.
