    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.

    I worked at Citrix full-time

    Pros

    There are no pros about the company.

    Cons

    Sales in the Fort Lauderdale office is a revolving door. People don't stay and find much better job! The management stinks and they all talk about employees behind their backs. They are more about playing favorites then developing employees. The moral is horrible and everyone is leaving. The turn over is so bad that HR has discussed with management on the sales floor. Really HR should look right at the managers for the turn over issues.

    Advice to Management

    Have HR do some checking into managers.

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are nice... that's about it

    Cons

    Terrible pay
    Long hours
    Inconsistent commission structure and little transparency in to compensation policy
    It's like a revolving door. Management and teams are constantly changing and 50% of new hires quit or can't meet unrealistic standards

    Advice to Management

    Hire less and invest more in higher quality hires

    Advice to Management

    We should have mangers who are real mangers, not micro managers.

    Pros

    Citrix offers good compensation, a great benefits package, among other employee perks.
    The employees can enjoy a very relaxed work atmosphere with free snacks, drinks, pool table, ping pong table, and a gym. They also offer discount price meals at the cafeteria.

    Layoffs every few years, micromanagement in some departments.

    Pros

    Citrix Bangalore has a Great work life balance. It has nice culture and friendly environment, with helpful people. Also, location is MG Road, which makes it easily accessible from anywhere in the city.

    Cons

    Work can get monotonous at times. Pay starts well but hikes aren't great. Also there are too many sub-teams and how much you earn is very luck dependant - depends on which team and subteam you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be more open to change, and needs to be more transparent about how the hikes are calculated.

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative: intelligent jerks are frowned upon. Competitive salary. Products selling well. Central location in Silicon Valley and still has cubicles!

    Cons

    Big branch in Bangalore, so frequent late night calls. NetScaler division has very high percentage of Indians. Lacks diversity in Santa Clara.

    Advice to Management

    Get leaders from companies that are cloud first and data first. Pay them well. Else you cannot execute your vision.
