    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Environment, fast paced, challenging. Be group of managers possible. Everyone in the company starts in the same spot so everyone has been through similar challenges. Awesome building/incentives are an added bonus. Great commission structure.

    Cons

    If you aren't competitive or do not have a great work ethic you will not last long.

    Advice to Management

    No real complaints. Management is pretty cool, everyone gets their work done so not too much micro managing.

    Pros

    Being at Citrix is like a gift...it is a family atmosphere and no matter how big Citrix' gets we still remain close! From the very top CEO/President to the people who cean the floors, everyone is treated as equals and no one is ever left out! I atribute this to the wonderful leadership of our CEO/President! Citrix is the place to work...they care about their employee and go the extra distance to make them feel a part of this growing family!! Everyone wants to be here and no one ever wants to seek employment anywhere else. Citrix Rock!!!

    Pros

    best combination of vision, passion and fun I've ever had at a job

    Cons

    Things move very fast at Citrix. Not a place for people who want to relax and work at a slow predictable pace.

    Advice to Management

    Great job, but make sure you keep communicating to everyone. Things move so quickly it's hard to keep pace. But I guess that's what makes it such an exciting environment.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, ability to transfer within the company, good compensation and benefits, great bonus program for senior contributors.

    Cons

    Limited number of products to work on in the Fort Lauderdale area. Some product teams are large and bureaucratic. Lack of product training/mentoring for new employees. Some management treat engineers as replacable cogs rather than leverage their specific skills.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Management is truly stellar at Citrix. However, I wish that the skills of the senior management would trickle down to the people managers.

    Pros

    The division I work for, Citrix Online, is interested in doing the right things related to engineering management practice: All Scrum, all the time. Everyone from the VP Engineering on down is working hard to create high quality software with great features, and report progress honestly to upper management. I love that this is pervasive: everyone is interested in building agility into everything from customer development (aka market analysis) to engineering to QA to deployment and operations. There appears to be an honesty about this: we aren't always doing it right, but no one seems afraid to say what didn't work and how to make it better.

    Cons

    There are a lot of meetings.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate feedback to individuals better: what are they doing right and wrong? Provide guidance about career opportunities within Citrix: how can each individual gain greater responsibility and make better contributions?

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, fun, dynamic place to be. This industry is very faced paced, and Citrix is poised to really make some game changing advances in the way the applications and desktops are delivered both for traditional client-server and web-based apps.

    Cons

    There are few downsides, this is a very fast paced, always changing environmnet. If that doesn't appeal to you, Citrix is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Without the long-term vision of MarkT and his direct reports we would never be where we are today, Citrix would instead continue to be a one trick pony.

    Pros

    The corporate environment is very positive and people genuinely like eachother and support the corporate goals. It is a fun environment with plenty of opportunity for learning and growth. Training classes are encouraged and plenty are offered.

    Management encourages new ideas and fosters creativity. There is support for risk taking with investments and strategies. I like the ability to create and present business cases for funding to initiate the strategies.

    Management is very good at providing accolades when they are deserved.

    Cons

    Citrix does not encourage people to work from home which is strange since we sell the tools to enable home offices.

    Advice to Management

    Identify a replacement for John Burris quickly as it will provide confidence to the market that Citrix has succession planning.
