    Citrix did a great job making their PS engineers feel included and get the training they needed.

    Great culture. Committed teams. Fun environment.

    Churn driven by external forces. Political skirmishes between worldwide and geography based teams.

    I think management has done a good job of being a buffer between board/activist investor manipulation and the employees. Advice is keep the culture strong. It will win over the long haul.

    Pros

    The people at Citrix are great. They hire high quality, extremely motivated people. My experience was that it was an extremely open environment. Employees share rather than hide information, which really helps create a collaborative and fast moving environment. Management is pretty open about sharing information as well. Good opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Some cliqueishness which is probably to be expected at any company. However, as Citrix is in a transformation phase (cloud transformation as well as multiple recent CEO turnovers in the past 2 years) things seem to be getting a bit more political and siloed. The frequency of department restructurings seems to be increasing as well.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep open, collaborative culture through this transition.
