I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (less than a year)

Pros

Compensation was very good. Environment was positive.

Cons

I was part of a major layoff in 2009, where we were told that we would be the first to be considered for new job opportunities at Citrix in the future. I have applied to many more jobs within the organization and have never, ever been considered. The layoff came as a shock to me, as I had only been with the company for 6 months. One day I was employed, the next unemployed.

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

    Pros

    Strong culture, collaborative work environment, great market opportunity

    Cons

    Execution challenges, product issues, senior management becoming driven by politics, work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on execution and long term strategy. Decisions driven by short-term results and political agendas are really starting to hurt the company. The stress that many managers are putting on their teams is starting to impact morale was work/life balancing is getting out of alignment.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Product and vision are very solid

    Cons

    Certain regions of this company are toxic. Customers view Citrix as a pushy company always asking for the order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the micro management. Weekly business reviews are crushing and crude. Talk to the customers without always asking for something. I have at least 5 customers that will not let my management team onsite.
