    Laid off, cod have had more tools to work with and as a contractor for many years I wish I would have been pushed to go full time before it was too late and I fell within the layoff group during hard times

    Keep an open mind to your employees

    I have been working at Citrix as an intern

    Pros

    I work in a great environment. Onsite amenities are great, including a gym and a cafeteria. Snacks and drinks are always available. Fellow employees seem happy here and it adds to enjoying the work.

    Cons

    Pay for interns could be a little more competitive, but given my little experience in the field prior to this opportunity I'd say it's okay.

    Advice to Management

    My boss is pretty great, so I don't have anything to recommend to the higher ups. Maybe more team building events?

    I have been working at Citrix as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Connected and engaged leadership which enables the culture to spread throughout departments. Incredible work life balance and supportive employees. Everyone works from home on Fridays, 20 PTO days upon starting, great benefits overall.

    Cons

    Under the new leadership and the direction the company is steering itself toward, it would be a challenge to find any that would be more than nitpicking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the active engagement with your employees, continue to embrace the changes coming from the C-level staff, and continue to stay true to the Citrix values.
