    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment, worked with a great team on interesting products. Compensation is on par with the rest of the industry, maybe a bit better.

    Cons

    Too much politics. While working at a company of this size is bound to involve dealing with people's interests, this was to a point that was actually fairly damaging to productivity. Looking good was more important than actually producing good work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Flatten the hierarchy, put in place real processes for identifying good employees, reward them and get rid of the many that are just here for the ride.

    Current Employee - Technical Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, ok benefits, good salary, good location, nice products. Used to be a fun, humble, hard working place.

    Cons

    Not fun anymore, they're hiring a bunch of Cisco people ... they are spreading the Cisco disease (why don't those people every smile?), non-technical people in management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are promoting people to director, VP levels who are just "working" their managers. Too many VP's who don't know what they are doing. ex: I've seen VP's in Marketing who have never run a campaign. Campaign, what is that? The recent CMO hire is a joke. Once you are in, forget about being promoted, you literally have to beat your manager over the head to even consider it. Raises are too low, only 2%-3% a year, not even keeping up with inflation, which is probably why alot of people leave Citrix.
