Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales

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

Pros

I've been with the company for 6+ years and while it's not all be roses I can honestly say that I've experience tremendous personal and professional growth in my role(s) at Citrix. I started as a SDR... and have worked my way up and there's very few companies out there that promote from within like Citrix.

Cons

It can be a grind, but what sales role isn't?

Advice to Management

Listen to employees at every level.

Current Contractor - Python

I have been working at Akamai for less than a year

Pros

Diversity isn't a buzzword. The percentage of non-white CIS gendered male engineers is higher than any place I've worked. Different perspectives are valued. A good mix of consensus and... decisiveness Haven't found any jerks. Smart helpful people.

Cons

Some technology is ancient. Sometimes this makes no difference (bugzilla is about as good as jira ) Sometimes it is a hassle (p4 is unpleasant compared to git ) In some areas this might hurt the... company. Parts of Linux that weren't great 15 years ago got replaced with custom solutions. Now Linux handles this stuff well and the custom solutions are a bit hard to maintain.
