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

Pros

Fantastic work-life balance, very flexible. Great, smart people working there. Good pay, decent growth opportunity, overall the best company I have worked for -- I am not sure why I left and I may come back if they will have me!!!!

Cons

The pay/bonus/raises could be better, very competitive in the door, but they were a little tight on salary growth once there.

Growth opportunity could have been a little more accelerated for me. While the company was trying to move me up the ladder, progress was a little slower than I liked (the reason I left) and I found myself doing higher/senior-level work but not getting the promotion/title to justify it.

Some of the senior management for my department (Technical Support) I could have done without -- they detracted from my experience working there, however the low/mid and most of the upper-management are solid, great people who provide excellent leadership.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure you take the right steps to keep the many good people you have Citrix -- I noticed while working there that the better, more talented individuals tended to leave since they were not necessarily getting the growth opportunities they needed to entice them to stay. A number of coat-tail riders get to sail on in that environment and tend to drag the whole company down as a whole.

Just know who you want to keep around, and make it worth it for them to stay!

    Pros

    Been working for Citrix since early 2012. This company has a great overall culture and treats its employees with dignity and respect. All my managers are very friendly and supportive and have a wide open door policy. The work is very fast paced and challenging, and there is plenty of room for growth, as Citrix likes to promote from within. They have a very good benefits package and salaries are very competitive.

    Cons

    Current position requires a rotating follow the sun schedule, which includes shifts that run into late evening, but overall not the end of the world.
