    Pros

    Great people, environment, helpful culture, amenities, gym.

    Cons

    Most of the senior management is not very experienced. Seemed like we were flying by the seat of our pants. They changed our monthly quotas several times in a matter of months and I couldnt understand why they couldnt get it right the first time. They changed our commission structure and our OTE were basically made impossible to hit with clawbacks. Took a pay cut while adding additional responsibilities to the job like customer onboarding and set up.

    Advice to Management

    Work on rebuilding the culture you had when ShareFile was starting up and growing, a lot of that was lost once we hit a certain point. Take your time in making changes to employee job responsibilities and their compensation plans.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Citrix full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - A company culture is reflective of its leaders belief and while I was at Citrix, Mark Templeton was the CEO and the efforts were aimed at creating a culture that is inclusive, transparent and vibrant. It is not to say, it is any different now but I just didn't work under the new CEO.

    - Great employee perks

    - Work/Life balance

    - Flexible work hours and work location; lived by "Work anywhere" mantra and enabled employees to follow it

    Cons

    - Like many companies. Citrix also had mid-management problems.
    - There was a problem with the vision of what Citrix needed to be for next 10-20 years but I think now this is solved with letting GTM part of the company go

    Pros

    Nice office space, good working conditions, some positions offer work from home flexibility, challenging work, not for the faint of heart.

    Cons

    They are losing all the good employees due to poor middle and upper management. Lack of clear communications, sub-par management that treat good employees badly and often promote the wrong people! No training offered, or must be paid out of pocket. No HR support.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to lead and train your managers accordingly.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity within certain teams.

    Cons

    Petty middle management sets the tone within certain teams.

    Advice to Management

    Great opportunity overall, bittersweet writing this since I'm not sure the company's capable of making the changes it needs to at this point in 2017 with acquisition rumors circling and the EMC merger last year. Skip level meetings would be a good start.
