Good Products, political company

Pros

Benefits, 401k, medical, dental, vision are very good.

Citrix online has the best environment in the company. Good synergy within the group and they operate their business separately from the rest of the company so they can excel.

Some of the people are great but many have been more focused on jockeying for position rather than adding value to the company.

Cons

The Sr. team is more focused on expanding the market cap and getting favorable analyst coverage around access experience, virtualization or the "latest buzz" and they are out of touch with prospects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more open minded in aligning customer needs with company needs to produce better results. Put politics aside and reward top performers. If they make a mistake with a hiring decision know when to cut the cord instead of trying to cover their tracks.

    Great company that used to feel like a startup but now is a huge corporation.

    Pros

    Citrix is a great company. Everyone is really friendly and helpful. Finance department functions as a TEAM. Manager is very understanding of work-life balance. The company has a history of promoting from within, rather than getting someone from the outside. Happy hours are great and company takes care of the employees (catered lunches, fully stocked kitchens). You can even bring your dog to work. Other cool things include internal network where you can sell/trade things you no longer need.

    Cons

    Work-load can be tough, especially because of the global expansion. Accounting dept. might have a fairly high people turn-around. SAP system is NOT utilized to the full potential, so a lot of SOX work is manual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get back to and preserve the "start-up" feel the company once head. I don't think too many people like the corporate environment that has been established in last few years.

    Great Products, Great people, Great Channel

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance

    Pros

    If you like the technology it is a great opportunity. The channel and customers are great to work with. The culture seems to help retain great people at the lower levels where some of the deserving get promoted. The people that have 10+ years have a great passion for what they do and I hope to someday have the position to help motivate a next wave in a company while feeling rewarded for what I do. There is a great culture of taking care of family births, deaths, sickness are all situations where as an employee you feel completely supported by the company.

    Cons

    Citrix is showing some of the growing pains of becoming a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Crisper, more content filled communication. Try to not sound like we have finished our journey. Some of us that don't have millions in stock still have to work to put roofs over the heads and food into the mouths of our children.
