    Good compensation plan, solid salary + uncapped commissions. Solid field sales camaraderie. Tenured management, very supportive.

    Heavily metrics driven which led to conflicts within regional team. This drove activities that were not always in best interests of customer. Products were complicated often requiring complex, extended troubleshooting. CEO revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Add Customer Satisfaction as metric to monitor and tie to comp plan.

    I worked at Citrix full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits. Got to be involved with a broad range of projects

    Cons

    Seems like the company went from focusing on the technology to focusing on stock price (magic number of growth + op margin >= 40). It used to be to do what's right and the stock will take care of itself. Now, it's all about cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the core values and principles. Get rid of the vultures
