    I worked at Citrix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free Coffee, fruit and snacks daily

    Cons

    Management has lost it's mind period. I was there 4 years and had 3 different CEO's, 3 different Engineering Managers, and each one came in and tried to force new management styles. The last straw was when they took Test Engineers and Development Engineers and wanted to combine their tasks into one while still hitting goals for production development. On top of this the testing framework was an in-house abortion that only the people developing it could make work and then only barely. Then there was a mass influx of Indians right out of school while they were laying off advanced American engineers with 16+ years with the company. Now as bad as working at Tata or Infosys with the BS management style and lack of true path to excel in your work.

    Advice to Management

    Brink Mark back as CEO. He had the vision/creativity to make this company great. Now you are beholden to a bunch of investor idiots (Elliot Group) and have lost your vision. Sell off yourself to Microsoft so you get some decent management in there. Git rid of the Indian good ole boy system that is so pervasive in tech firms these days.

    I worked at Citrix full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Overall I really enjoyed my time at Citrix. The work was interesting and the coworkers were great. The work was never stressful.

    Cons

    There weren't many unit tests for a lot of the code. The codebase didn't have any style guidelines and some of the code was not very idiomatic.
