    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    HUGE opportunity for career advancements if you are extroverted and hard working. Promotions at Citrix are earned by solving problems outside if your JD. Building relationships with people outside of your team are essential for gaining the recognition you need for advancement and management roles.

    Cons

    Not a good environment for people wanting positive recognition for task work. Treating Citrix as a 9/5 job, will not lead to much growth. However, there is good work/life balance for those with the skills to telecommute and manage time.

    Advice to Management

    If you have high performing introverted/quiet employees, make sure they are happy before they leave. I've seen lots of talent walk from this company because they feel left behind or uninvited.
