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

    Pros

    I have worked in bad companies in the past and I can attest that Citrix is easily one of the best company in the world. Pays very well, Company goes to extra mile to ensure you are accommodated and taken care off. Of course a lot depends on your manager and all of my managers have been nothing but exemplary. Another aspect of the company that impressed me the most is the investment in your growth. If you have the drive, Citrix will help you excel. On top of that they are not cheap, great phone benefits, travel benefits and school tuition assistance to name a few.

    Cons

    So far I did not find anything bad about this company. If I am stretched I would say may be lack of assigned space to employees in fort lauderdale 4th floor, but thats just me. A lot of employees like the open office space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what ever you are doing. Great products, great management style and keep excelling.

    I worked at Citrix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture, Perks, Team Environment, Work/Life Balance, Cafeteria, Campus

    Cons

    Managers of newly acquired software products are clueless on how to manage these new teams. Often they lack the foresight into emerging markets and are slow to understand the needs of their teams. Leaving Engineers and customers frustrated.

    Advice to Management

    Find the experts in the products, learn more from them. Leverage the senior members of your teams to do what is best everyone. Understand that you do not have all the answers and you must optimize workflows, reduce redundancies and business cannot be simply done over email anymore.

    Pros

    I have been working for Citrix for more than 16 years and I can't say enough about the opportunities that I have had during my tenure here.

    Every company has their ops and downs but Citrix has always manage through.

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Interesting products, sometimes challenging work.

    Cons

    Rigidity in processes and procedures, not allowed to take initiative, some really bad management who deserve to be fired, not demoted.

    Advice to Management

    Support your employees better. Allow them to have ideas and to take initiative. Stop getting rid of great employees because one manager has too much influence. Culture and challenging work went away with all the changes over the past 3 to 4 years along with diminishing responsibilities. Bored employees are not happy or productive employees.
