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

    Pros

    I have worked in bad companies in the past and I can attest that Citrix is easily one of the best company in the world. Pays very well, Company goes to extra mile to ensure you are accommodated and taken care off. Of course a lot depends on your manager and all of my managers have been nothing but exemplary. Another aspect of the company that impressed me the most is the investment in your growth. If you have the drive, Citrix will help you excel. On top of that they are not cheap, great phone benefits, travel benefits and school tuition assistance to name a few.

    Cons

    So far I did not find anything bad about this company. If I am stretched I would say may be lack of assigned space to employees in fort lauderdale 4th floor, but thats just me. A lot of employees like the open office space.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what ever you are doing. Great products, great management style and keep excelling.

    I worked at Citrix (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work culture is fantastic. There were lots of perks while working at the main campus. The work from home policy was also very flexible.

    Cons

    The upper and middle management had several major instances of reorganization. This shifted around managers that actually cared about their employees to those that didn't. There are many people who are able to brown nose their way to higher positions and its pretty evident that they did not get there based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    This company has made many mistakes over the past few years. It seems like there is a lot of damage control occurring in order to repair previous issues. I would greatly work on your current staff instead of relying on layoffs. You invest so much into your employees only to waste it and throw it away when its convenient for you.

    I worked at Citrix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free snacks/drinks, discounted cafeteria. Citrix product training and other coursework available internally.

    Pay appears statistically calculated. Find the right calculator, and Citrix offers/moves salaries near its 50% mark.

    Cons

    Used to mandate employees take at least a week of training. Now career growth expected to be completed on your own time.

    Colleagues who changed positions internally felt like management saw this as a failure rather than something to be celebrated.

    Expect to spend long hours working with development teams abroad.

    May be extremely proactive enforcing NDAs to the point someone's new employer panicked, even though there was no known conflict of interest.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage internal skills development and transfers. Employees should not have to leave their departments to avoid being stagnant and grow in their careers.

    Pros

    free coffee, benefits good, nice office space

    Cons

    Operations Leadership Sucks, outsourcing good paying American jobs to India. Preach that they have a great work life balance but if you need time off it's always a battle.

    Advice to Management

    Keeps jobs in America

    I worked at Citrix full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Was the commission structure, which has changed since I've left
    - Culture of those around you, people you work with (not management)
    - Free snacks/food (there's a reason everyone gains weight while there)
    - Excellent exposure to big business and how little the "little guy" matters to bottom line
    - Some managers are fantastic and would literally give you the shirt off their back

    Cons

    - unreasonable hours, everyone knows sales is long hours - while I was there you were singled out for not getting there before 8:00 and leaving before 6:30-7:00
    - Management, some are very inexperience and only care about their bonuses for their group hitting numbers
    - Instructed to do 0 research on the company before dialing
    - High dial count (expected 150 calls a day)
    - Not every vertical is the same, but is treated that way
    - Sorry investment into marketing it seemed liked
    - Extremely high turnover, there's a reason they're always hiring #churnandburn
    - Favoritism, was passed over several times to move up because of not hitting numbers (but hitting quota)
    - Say goodbye to personal life as you put in 12+ hours a day due to management pressure and quotas
    - Leads are years (4,5,6,7 years old) and you're stared at whenever you ask if they are going to be updated. Leads are also on multiple lists and listed under different names. Some leads get calls from Citrix 4+ times a week.

    Advice to Management

    Change the model, stop working people to death, hire better managers (a good sales rep doesn't make a good manager), love to boast about how Sharefile group helps Citrix as a whole hit it's numbers but seems to invest very, very little into it

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules. Great work/life balance. Good benefits. Perfect weather.

    Cons

    Pay is below market. Frequent reorganizations. Almost no project management or HR support.

    Advice to Management

    Pay rates are years behind the market and haven't been adjusted. Project management is undervalued and burdens the management level. HR business partners support so many employees that they are over-burdened and cannot take on anything but emergencies.
