Good company in spite of promotion practices and middle management.

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Work-life balance is great! Flexible work hours and locations. There are a lot of resources available to employees and additional training is encouraged.

Cons

In some departments, promotions are largely based on what boils down to a 'popularity contest'. The recommendations come from people you may or may not know and often they have no working knowledge of your professional aptitudes. It's a shame I've seen many great employees leave over the years because of this. Other departments tend to over-promote...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep an eye on middle management. Decisions should be made solely on their merits, not as a political maneuver.

    Pros

    A leader in very unique technologies.

    Cons

    Technology is constantly being updated and expanding into new territories, yet the company kept reducing and eliminating training. As engineers were expected to know more and more, they were trained less and less. Unless you enjoy spending your nights and weekends training yourself to stay up to speed, avoid working for this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your employees on the new technology you develop.
