    I worked at Citrix (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    A highly collaborative environment where you have the opportunity to work with diverse professionals globally. Newness is welcomed as well creativity. Advancing in one's role stems in large part on one's drive and ability to become excel while taking on new opportunity. Great campus and flexible work shifting.

    Cons

    New direction means staying flexible, agile and start, stop, redirect fast. Life and work can be off balanced due to high demand and pace.

    Advice to Management

    Teams have drive and commitment like no other - let them know how much they are appreciated.

    I worked at Citrix full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global corporation with a major presence in South Florida (one of the few!), positive company culture, great benefits, interesting work, intelligent co-workers.

    Cons

    The company is currently undergoing many changes, with senior leaders leaving, etc. It's a turbulent time for Citrix right now, but hopefully the company will pull through successfully as it has many times in the past.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to articulate a clear strategic direction to reassure employees and the public.

    Pros

    You'll never be bored. Great people who are smart & passionate about helping people work better. Very transparent, data driven culture.

    The only constant is change - constant reorgs. Newer management wants people in the offices resulting in too much travel.

    Where did all of the fun go???

    I have been working at Citrix as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    A truly innovative compnay that makes it possible to balance work and life. A business minded and design driven company that is leading change and inpiring others. Citrix has a warm and collaborative culture designed for employess to achieve above and beyond their full potential.

    Cons

    The uncertainty one can feel at times about becoming a permanent employee after contracting for over a year is a bit unsettling at times. A contractor position is a great way to get your foot in the door at this amazing company yet waiting to become permanent can take longer than expected.

    Citrix tries to provide a solid work/life balance. Very good company culture and sr. management.

They have also have had considerable growth and are in strong position to continue that growth.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, ok benefits, good salary, good location, nice products. Used to be a fun, humble, hard working place.

    Cons

    Not fun anymore, they're hiring a bunch of Cisco people ... they are spreading the Cisco disease (why don't those people every smile?), non-technical people in management.

    Advice to Management

    You are promoting people to director, VP levels who are just "working" their managers. Too many VP's who don't know what they are doing. ex: I've seen VP's in Marketing who have never run a campaign. Campaign, what is that? The recent CMO hire is a joke. Once you are in, forget about being promoted, you literally have to beat your manager over the head to even consider it. Raises are too low, only 2%-3% a year, not even keeping up with inflation, which is probably why alot of people leave Citrix.
