    I have been working at Citrix full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Best place I've ever had the chance to grow my career - entrepreneurial spirit with big-company talent and infrastructure. Employees with ideas are encouraged to bring those ideas forward to solve problems. Smart colleagues who are grounded and (mostly) ego-free. Company focuses on outcomes, enabling employees to find some work-life harmony...juggling the demands of a professional career with family...as long as you deliver...

    Cons

    Some processes are still immature for a big, 28-year-old company.

    Advice to Management

    Get creative about keeping women in the workforce -- need to break through the gender discrepancy in top leadership roles. Provide more resourcing and funding for career development. This is an area that has historically been underfunded, yet employee feedback over the years indicates it's one of the most requested areas of investment. While it's true that career development comes in all shapes and sizes (not just learning...

      I worked at Citrix full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Go through this program, do well, and it’s one of the best launch pads for a career in IT, especially consulting or sales engineering. Work with brilliant, driven people. Comp is great in general, pretty good for tech. Travel, investment in education, benefits, all great. Cool, interesting people. Working from anywhere isn’t a problem, since they literally build the tech that makes it possible (after the TA program)....

      Cons

      The TA program itself has real issues with integrity by design that carry an implicit cost. Major values misalignment. Anyone who has gone through the TA program in recent years can attest, but likely won’t. The consequences of oversight here, whether it is conscious or unconscious, can be categorically devastating. The compensation is probably lower than other entry level consulting roles, but the education and training...

      Advice to Management

      Think about what you are asking the TA’s to do, the actions they must take to “succeed,” and how they must rationalize their decisions. Consider the effects this training might have on them once they are in roles with greater (social) responsibility.

      I worked at Citrix full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Innovative company with good vision and great office spaces.

      Cons

      Lots of “clicky” groups, lots of gossip and internal office politics. Company does not back up what they say about working from anywhere and HR team is power hungry. Lots of “under the radar” secrets and blindsiding practices directed to employees.

      Advice to Management

      Look more closely at your internal mid management teams and get rid of the dead weight and actually bring people in that are more interested In doing the work and not so much about who they can stab to get ahead. Also be forthcoming with information to your employees.

      I worked at Citrix full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Its a big company and the culture is good. Training opportunities are available but in cases you need to search them yourself. The company will also allow you to change roles AWESOME benefits overall

      Cons

      Seems hard to grow within the company lots of changes in senior management (And some mid level management clean up) in the last few years

    • "Great place to start a sales career"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC

        I worked at Citrix full-time

        Pros

        There are some exceptional minds on the sales team here and hard work is really valued. Something that was really inherit in the startup culture was not being afraid to bend the rules a bit. On the ShareFile team, we would say that ShareFile had 60,000 customers, millions of users around the world, and was used by 99% of the Fortune 500. While that may be true for Citrix products overall, it wasn't true for ShareFile....

        Cons

        There are a lot of naysayers and it can be tough to always ignore them.
