    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The base salary is very competitive but subsequent hikes are way below industry average. Work from home option is available but requires manager's permission

    Cons

    - you would be forced to generate numbers even if that equals to lying. Not sure if the upper management if aware of this but the middle-management is actively involved in making the employees lie about numbers like test case, code coverage, etc. This creates a suffocating environment.
    - hikes percentages are very poor.
    - The testing teams should focus on the growth of the employees too. The work is mundane and boring. A warning for fresh hires.
    - The free cab facility is not a 'facility' anymore. This is just to bump up the CTC

    Advice to Management

    I don't think they will bother imparting any advice.

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nothing even for namesake. Politics rule the roost here. You must lick your manager to get promotions and good reviews. Once you are against unethical behavior, rest assured your annual review is royally messed up.

    Cons

    Team is encouraged to give positive feedback on Glassdoor and even being dictated to enter the feedback. Some unknown culture is being projected, When asked no one is able to describe what exactly it is but still boast of the unmatched culture.

    Advice to Management

    No one is willing to listen. They just think they are perfect.

    Pros

    Employees are pampered, HR is too open and wants to talk to everyone and encourages dialogue.

    Cons

    Business leaders find it difficult to execute delivery and excellence with change being a factor that none in the company is able to deal with nor scale to higher efficiency, with HR being so open and taking care of everyone's problems and pampering it becomes even more difficult to execute anything.

    Advice to Management

    Keep HR team away from Business.

    Pros

    Goof Food Benefits.
    Cab facility which flexible accordingly and door to door facility.
    WFH
    Leave Benefits

    Cons

    Complete burden on your solders.
    Used to treat you like slave and permanent team members show off like king.
    Promised you that they would give permanent position but rather giving you permanent position would provide you excuses about your performance and nature if you have performed outstanding ,that does not matter in front of Team, Manager or Management.
     End of the cycle hires new contractor and same things would continue.
    Uses to take interview like giving you permanent position.

    But Clearly only Contractors are the people who used to work outstanding.
