Pros

The company offers a very competetive salary and benefits package for employees. Flexble work from home schedules is also a great perk.

Cons

There is a perception by executive management that existing talent from within the organization is less competent than that of candidates that are recruited from off the street. Unfortunate to say the least.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People are your greatest asset. Remember your employees and customers are the reason for your success and the reason you reached the level of success today. Time for a fresh CEO.

    Pros

    - Great technology
    - alot of very capable and intelligent people
    -huge market opportunity now

    Cons

    - far too much internal politics
    - many roles have little to no career path
    - Regular pointless changes in messaging and product naming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give all employees stock options. There was much less political maneuvering and back stabbing when every one got stock options each year.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Great tuition reimbursement, Opportunity for telecommuting, Emphasis on customer satisfaction, Four weeks of PTO, open and transparent communication from upper management

    Cons

    Older technologies, weak career advancement, poor product management, unrewarding performance feedback, no validation of objectives with strategic goals, freeze on promotions & increases, no rewards for employee self-improvement and continuous learning, Principle level title hard to achieve

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When the economy is back on its feet, employees at Citrix will realize that there are very few motivators available to keep them interested in staying at Citrix. If you don't get the career advancement plan worked out soon, many employees may leave for other opportunities and better career and technical growth.
