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

    Pros

    Unlimted potential to make money. Impossibly easy to understand commission structure, and very obtainable if you are aggressive and committed. The people I worked with were some of the best people i have ever met

    Cons

    Want to be promoted? Pucker up - it is not based on experience, merit, or qualification. 100% of all management hiring decisions are a total crapshoot, and there is a whole lot of sucking up. Underqualified and inexperienced managers are a result of this.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead weight managers who were only hired 3 months prior and promote into management the people who have the experience and drive to make a difference. Not the fresh bloods that take you out to lunch every other day.

    I have been working at Citrix full-time

    Pros

    - Great Paid Time Off, benefits
    - Most people are amazing at their jobs, a pleasure to work with
    - Exposure to a wide variety of technologies
    - Freedom to transfer to other teams within the company based on your career goals

    Cons

    - Not much training. You're expected to learn for yourself, but everyone is happy to help.
    - If your job involves an on-call schedule, you will have no personal life.
    - Corporate partnership with Microsoft means you'll be stuck using and building Windows systems.

    I worked at Citrix full-time

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, good compensation, positive moral, and innovative. I was laid off, but Citrix provided a solid compensation package.

    Cons

    Changes in business direction within the last year lead to employee downsizing. As an impacted employee, it would have been good to be allowed opportunities elsewhere in the company. I'm the stereotypical victim of a tech company needing to meet Wall Street's expectations and reaching its bottom line.

    Pros

    Great Management. Great Product. They listen to employees, We can work from anywhere. Excellent Compensation based on performance.

    Cons

    Not much negative to say. Change product names a little too often. We need to simplify our partner program. I believe this will be done very soon!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture positive, innovation strong, trust Craig to move the Partner Community in the right direction.

    Pros

    Great Benefits... I mean really great benefits
    Free education on company products, if you can find the time to take advantage
    Had a great manager... Bill Aycock.

    Cons

    Just the job is rough... dealing with customer who when they call in they are normally upset. Also, sometimes dealing with clueless TRM or Sales people. Also, there seem to be a disconnect between frontline and escalation. They also didn't have a great way to handle bathroom breaks, since you had to be in a call queue. I would recommend going to Citrix, but you don't want to be in Technical Support if you can help it.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Fun, energetic people. Free snacks and food. Very nice office building with gym, cafeteria, game rooms. Good pay if you work hard.

    Cons

    Super high, hard to achieve goals. Never time for a break. High stress levels from trying to achieve monthly goals

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Best management team I've ever worked for. A lot of other companies could learn a thing or two from Citrix's management style.
