    I have been working at Citrix full-time

    Pros

    Has a culture of respect for employees and between colleagues. Leaders in several high tech market sectors.

    Cons

    Company recently cloud first focus but not clear beyond that what are the supporting goals and focus. Considerable changes in executive leadership team and lack a clear execution strategy. Important decisions often unclear or indecisive. No one clear voice of direction across the company.

    Advice to Management

    Spend every day re-evaluating/refining the key objectives, and focus on how to prioritize and cascade (communicate) across every aspect of the organization to execute aggressively toward those objectives. Make the hard calls of figuring out what not to do, what skills are no longer needed and acquire new skills into the company so fully focused on realizing key innovation objectives.


  2. "Great company, decent products but recently have become "next Q" focused and not long term"

    Cons

    Strategy determined by executive team (last 2 years) that was trying to put on financial lipstick

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Benefits
    - Location
    - Some departments have strong guidance regarding career paths

    Cons

    - Some departments are a career traps with no growth
    - Some departments have very strong office politics issue
    - Some departments have a hard time retaining talent

    Advice to Management

    Take care of you people. If they are valuable acknowledge them with words and efforts and growing them. I have many talented people leave Citrix for "better" opportunists and each time the last thing they hear is ".. we see you as a valuable Citrite." Typically it's the first time they ever heard anyone within their own department say it to them.

    Pros

    Great place to learn, free snacks, great co-workers

    Cons

    Work-life balance in support organization is not great as there is a usually too many things to get done.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your employees as much as you can to make sure they are balanced in their work and personal time. The majority of the employees want to learn and do well and get everything done but the fact is that the workload can be quite heavy and it is easy to become overwhelmed which leads to burnout.

    Relaxed and welcoming. I felt like everyone was really easy to work with. Pay was good.

    Cons

    I don't think there were any cons. Santa Barbara can be boring.

    I have been working at Citrix full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary and perks. Amazing Paid time off policy. You get 4 weeks for a new hire. After 5 years in the company, one more is added. We have 4 months of maternity/ paternity leave ( fully paid ). Kitchen is stocked with healthy snacks. Free bagels every Friday.

    Citrix really encourages to switch roles and teams within the company which is very healthy for career growth.

    Cons

    As I said in the summary, it really depends on the team that you join. There are some teams still grappling with legacy code, without any inclination to address the tech debt and hiring new developers with low standards.

    Promotions are not always fair. Some of the managers are neither technical nor good leaders. Not sure how they ended up in that role.
