I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Great compensation & benefit package, as is the culture and values. The teams and products are overall solid. I loved the flexible work schedule, it makes you more empowered and passionate about what you do when you can do it best. I would recommend working here, depending on what the priorities are. Very stable and consistent company to work for.

Cons

A lot of change, restructure, change management going on and some groups are better to work for than others. Think innovation and brand needs to continue to be a priority. It is unfortunate to see some lay-offs lately where some good talent are let go, while many are working crazy hours.

    How many complaints does it take for management to shape up?

    I worked at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Flexible working hours. Good benefits. Nice office spaces. Smart colleagues. If you are connected with the right people the opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    Employees are literally turning on each other in fear of losing their jobs. People are afraid to speak up about the toxic dynamics in some groups. The performance review process is questionable. Management silences other employees to voice their concerns with HR. I have advised several talented professionals to stay away from applying for jobs within my team due to the horrible treatment that I have experienced (as well as seeing other colleagues being treated equally poorly).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about the impact that you are having on the professional and personal lives of your employees.

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

    Pros

    Lucky to have been there. Friendly group, great benefits/on-site facilities/events, supportive of learning. Non-confrontational culture, lots of freedom to do one's job. Great pay. Expect that this company will do some really innovative & impressive things and be a great place to work!

    Cons

    When I was there (2 years ago) , there was difficulty executing, low accountability and some middle managers were able to bully, play favorites, etc., without any repercussion. Talent was often driven out and change adoption was too slow. Things have probably changed since this time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to shape the company to be a player in tech and attract competitive people, and do as much skip-level interaction as possible to make sure they are allowed to be competitive.
