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.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time

    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.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    Offers a competitive salary and bonus for the South Florida market. Sound technology and room for continued growth. Ability to be virtual, working from any place, anytime on any device

    Cons

    Need to improve Management team. Most managers are inexperienced and are promoted based on nepotism. Glass ceiling for female employees especially non Caucasian.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to ensure Managers are qualified and trained appropriately. Mandatory sensitivity training needs to be implemented to ensure all aware how to effectively manage employees regardless of race, color or creed.
