    Pros

    Fun atmosphere and the people are what make the job. Like most sales jobs, you get out of it what you put into it. Citrix puts a lot of time, energy, and resources into training its sales team, which is awesome.

    Cons

    Lots of growing pains transitioning from a startup to be more closely aligned with global Citrix

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Depending on your location, there are great facilities that make coming to work enjoyable. Benefits are OK. Work from home policy (by department) is a great advantage.

    Cons

    Comparatively to the IT world, Citrix has a lot to improve upon. There has been an identity crisis since the change in leadership, and imbalanced culture. Depending on the department/product group you work in, there is a varying experience. The name on the resume is really all it is worth at this point.

    You may get in, but advancement opportunities are minimal. They say they are growing, but it is not equal in all departments and product groups.

    Advice to Management

    Have honest conversations with the company. Very intelligent people work for you, so all the smoke and mirrors on a "great place to work" is a little deceiving. The past couple years of change in leadership and product offering is leaving the company in pieces. Bring everyone together with strong leadership both at the executive and middle-management levels. Re-evaluate your leaders that have been there 10+ years; some have stopped leading and are just coasting. It is costing you talent...

    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.

    Pros

    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.
