Pros

Great Benefits.
Unusually long vacation time.
Good balance between life and work

Cons

Technologically incompetent mid level and senior managers.
Therefore, career opportunities are not based on knowledge or skills.
Employee retention policy is a joke. The best and the brightest seem to be not even recognized.
There is not transfer of knowledge between acquired companies and Citrix.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want to operate high-tech company based on loyalty, I strongly suggest you to try yourself on a political arena.

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

    Pros

    Strong culture and energetic people. Great concept for mobile work styles and access to data from any device in any location. Citrix has all of the pieces to really become part of the fabric of all enterprises, but needs to bring them together to be successful.

    Cons

    Execution of the overall vision is very slow and not very well planned. Marketing efforts do not align with actual product functionality and customer demands.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Execute on the integration of the latest acquisition before starting the next one and deliver on the product features that you have committed to in a timely fashion.
