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

    Pros

    - A company culture is reflective of its leaders belief and while I was at Citrix, Mark Templeton was the CEO and the efforts were aimed at creating a culture that is inclusive, transparent and vibrant. It is not to say, it is any different now but I just didn't work under the new CEO.

    - Great employee perks

    - Work/Life balance

    - Flexible work hours and work location; lived by "Work anywhere" mantra and enabled employees to follow it

    Cons

    - Like many companies. Citrix also had mid-management problems.
    - There was a problem with the vision of what Citrix needed to be for next 10-20 years but I think now this is solved with letting GTM part of the company go

    Pros

    Great people, environment, helpful culture, amenities, gym.

    Cons

    Most of the senior management is not very experienced. Seemed like we were flying by the seat of our pants. They changed our monthly quotas several times in a matter of months and I couldnt understand why they couldnt get it right the first time. They changed our commission structure and our OTE were basically made impossible to hit with clawbacks. Took a pay cut while adding additional responsibilities to the job like customer onboarding and set up.

    Advice to Management

    Work on rebuilding the culture you had when ShareFile was starting up and growing, a lot of that was lost once we hit a certain point. Take your time in making changes to employee job responsibilities and their compensation plans.

    Pros

    They do an excellent job with hiring people with good personalities. You enjoy your job here generally because you enjoy the people around you.

    Cons

    Inconsistent management styles. Different expectations depending on who you ask. There are SOME very well-rounded & qualified managers there. Others were fast tracked into management and do not have a full grasp on the sales process or the software we sell.

    Advice to Management

    Require advanced product tests as well as CRM tests for our managers before you allow them to be responsible for people who are expected to sell your products.

    Great perks, great management. Focus on treating each other like family makes hard work much easier.

    Cons

    Classic sales conundrum; aggressive goals, fast pace and lots of rejection. Not for the faint of heart.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone needs to beat their head against the wall until they stumble across success. Continue to focus on ways to work smarter and more new recruits will stay on. Keep offering opportunities to grow and develop as you have. Great coaching.
