Pros

Citrix has a terrific product set which is easy to be passionate about. the company has been good at setting a Mission (lead in applications virtualization) Vision ($1B+ company), Strategy (grow through entering ancillary markets through acquisitions).

Cons

Away from power centers (Santa Clara and Ft. Lauderdale), there are very limited career growth opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Force newer management teams to pay attention to the culture and employee development.

    Pros

    Interesting technologies, interesting market space, interesting projects, good work life balance, good team work, definitely can run with a project and feel like contributing to larger goals. Overall Citrix is a good place to work and the flexibile work from anywhere is key to the work life balance.

    Cons

    moves a little slow sometimes, not much career path opportunity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    career path program is needed - skills rotation etc.

    Pros

    decent pay and benefits, smart people, depending on location.

    Cons

    inadequate communication among groups, poor cooperation and sometimes low quality work from some groups, turf battles and politics everywhere, particularly in middle management.

    the comment from the Bangalore guy about "politics in the US" is ridiculous. it's the reverse view here. evidence of the communication problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    integrate your groups faster. light a fire among the retirees in Florida. Ditch your HR department entirely, followed soon after by your IT group.
