Pretty decent place to work, but like almost anywhere needs improvement.

Pros

Exposure to many Technologies across the datacenter and the front of the IT house. Good people to work with, salaries are very competetive, pockets of startup type teams/energy. People have the opportunity to take their postitions to the highest level of skill they desire.

Cons

As with many larger companies you get people who are 9-5 ers and it can be a drag on others who have and continue to put in 150% effort. Coming from a smaller company that was aquired by Citrix it can be rough to see new people come in and do the bare minimum.
Projects are often larger in scale then there is time to complete instead of smaller incremental changes that can help control quality. Training for new people is often pushed to the back-burner in favor of tossing new people into the deep end of the pool.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate more often and to a wider audience. Go after the best and brightest. Strive to be a small Google type place to work.
Give more time for developing products, improve project scheduling so it's realistic (build in time for new people/training, etc.)

    Pros

    Overall, it's a good place to work. Citrix allows you to be an individual without constantly looking over your shoulder. They have a flexible work schedule that allows you to work remote when needed. The company believes strongly in promoting from within. They have the occasional company social event that allows everyone to get together and socialize.

    Cons

    The overall benefits package could be a bit better. While not the worst benefits plans, there is room for improvement compared to what other companies in the area are offering. Outside of that, there's not too much else to complain about at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at the benefits package and compare that to what other companies in the area are offering.
