I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great well maintained, low density seating offices. Laptops and meeting rooms plentiful to help collaboration. Plentiful parking and relaxed attitude to work from home. Regular training and meetings. Technologies and processes constantly updated.

Cons

Technologies moving so fast it can be hard to keep track of direction. A lot of software managers who have meetings relative to engineers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More engineers and fewer managers and marketing people and communicate long term strategy to smooth over the fast pace of change, we can't develop and test code overnight!

    Used to be good - but still has outside chance to ascend if tech firepower is used wisely.

    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work on many different domains - networking/ OS etc.
    Some of extremely competent people - comparable to best in industry.

    Cons

    Incompetent underlings becoming incompetent managers/ directors/ VPs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineering is hard - investments takes time, is uncertain but that is the only ( and ONLY ) possible effort which stands a chance to succeed against competition. Don't just acquire, build organically, pay respect to the trenches. Don't be led by pointy haired bosses.

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

    Pros

    You can get paid well for doing nothing. You can develop other hobbies or interests.

    Cons

    Bad management in US trying to manage Bangalore office. Those folks should be kicked out as they have no idea how to manage Team in India sitting in US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice of fake / incompetent 'directors' trying to manage India/Bangalore team.
