    Current Employee - Technical Marketing Manager in San Jose, CA

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (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.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    CEO is an awesome visionary
    Committed to career advancement, regular promotion reviews
    Great people (for the most part)
    Working environment is casual and flexible
    Fast-paced, ever evolving environment
    Growing and taking leadership of the market

    Cons

    The only downside to working at Citrix (which is a big one, unfortunately) was the senior management within my particular department. A very clique-like, political atmosphere that makes it difficult for those who actually work hard and have an opinion to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider instituting regular 360 reviews - so that employees have as much of a chance to provide feedback in a safe environment as their managers do towards them.
