Pros

The CEO (Mark Templeton) is a man you can die for.
Steady growth
Job security
Large company, but feels like a startup
Diversity and respect

Cons

The organization can seem pretty disorganized to new comers and even old employees. We need to do a better job of helping people find the information they need. We also need to communicate vision more effectively.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more agile and divest all you non-core and non-performing technologies. We also need to do a good job of translating vision to reality.

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

    Pros

    People is Citrix best asset. The culture is great and there are plenty of opportunities and multiple products for you to make an impact. Lots of high visibility activities and upper management likes to promote within.

    Cons

    Too many reorgs and team restructuring. Lack of vision in some areas. Too many minir changes without a clear vision on where to go. This impacts consistency and continuity in job duties and affects product quality and development. In need for a leadership change or a major alignment to foster product integration and overall quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on a single / few strategies.
    Don't spend so many cycles on products that are not providing results.
    Have a clear vision and long term goals, then execute. No more distractions.

    Pros

    I've been with Citrix for over 7 years. Love that you can work on cutting edge technology, great work from home policy, competitive wage.

    Cons

    Managers are hiring people with no technical skills leaving the work load on those that haven't yet left the company. This is not company-wide. If you get the wrong manager, be prepared to work every weekend and 10-12 hour week days in order to meet their unreasonable expectations. And even then, don't be surprised to get a 2 % increase and a decrease in any variable target cash, while they use up the budget needlessly flying in and out of the country (GTM?).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are losing some great long-time employees due to managers that do not know how to lead (fear factor, no work-life balance, zero empathy).
