Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Santa Barbara, CA

I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

-They use the tools they make (constantly dogfooding)
-Very flexible on work life balance, and when/where you work (was able to work part of the time remotely from the APAC region while traveling for vacation)
-Good compensation

Cons

-You are kind of always working due to the flexibility of meeting and where you work, and you are never quite sure where the people you need to work with are or what they are doing
-way too many meetings. Sr leaders try to move things forward with constant meetings so often times things get bottlenecked bc no real work is being done

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep innovating and don't fall into the innovator's dilemma. Your customers might not know what they really want in the future.

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

    Pros

    Work Flexibility
    Free and Inexpensive Food
    Nice working environment

    Cons

    Highly political environment, run without rudimentary controls over what a senior manager can do if they want to get rid of someone. They won't fire them outwardly, but constructive dismissal is practiced routinely in certain parts of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a little more attention to what the kids in HR are doing to people.
