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

    Pros

    one of the better support organizations I've worked for; granted I was on the high end but overall seemed to be well organized, customer focused and happy to provide resources that we needed to do our jobs. I'd been on the customer end of Citrix TRM support for a few years and, while I felt somewhat spammed at times, was happy with their service.

    Cons

    bit of a good ole' boys club. I found it socially straining when interacting with some team members. the role I was in turned out to not be a good fit for me because how they measured success did not mesh with my best attributes.

    Advice to Management

    Citrix seems to be a patchwork of many purchased companies and technologies. Integration remains a challenge, especially for less popular products. Without knowing the numbers it's hard to understand what the priorities are, but when certain minor products' major bugs continue to get neglected and the messaging remains upbeat you have to wonder what's at the root of that discontinuity.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    work/life balance, PTO is generous and easy to use, paid holidays, Volunteer Days, and the people you work with are fantastic.

    Cons

    No raises for the schleps, while upper management cashes in 6 figure stock options for cash. Management has been swimming in circles the entire time i've worked here, with no real gains in product quality or sales.

    Advice to Management

    Provide some semi-decent career-pathing for your Level I people. Shoulder-tap promotions for the brown nosers, and reward the loyal long-term employees with their due financial respect. Loyalty should be rewarded, not ignored. Stop sending sales on trips that cost the company thousands of dollars when they haven't even made their goals.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time

    Pros

    Tech company with strong installed base of customers. Great people in the Santa Clara location at the staff level. Nice campus.

    Cons

    Very political. Tops down culture where important decisions regarding strategy, staffing and promotions are made in Ft Lauderdale, FL by territorial executives who are out of touch.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify the executive team! Completely move headquarters to Santa Clara. Divest from non-core business acquired as "favors" by the CEO.

    Pros

    Good environment to work with all the tools needed are there to facilitate the work needed to be done daily. Salary is decent and alot of amenities provided that other companies would not. The employees are great and always willing to work together to lend a hand. Cultural surrounding is very diverse and fun.

    Cons

    Company is going through reconstruction meaning a lot of employees getting laid off and the one's staying behind are being overloaded with work. The company is sending a lot of work to outside the States for cheaper labor and the small room to grow is who you know not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    If reconstruction is needed for the company then it should be overall and not removing the hard working employees for cheaper labor outside the U.S however keeping the blood sucking manager and directors who are making the company broke.

    Pros

    A solid company with great products, ethics and workplace balance since 2000,

    Cons

    Citrix has fallen victim to fuzzy vision in the executive offices. As a result, Wall Street barbarians have moved in and taken control of the company. Although the stock was near an all time high, Citrix laid off nearly 1,000 employees in 11/2015 and will likely lay off more in 2016. The direction and stability of the corporation is in jeopardy.

    Pros

    Work life balance, culture used to be good, benefits were good

    Cons

    Upper management is slow and does not adapt fast enough to changing technology landscape. They are looking for ways to go after the last 10% instead of focusing on the greater audience. There are very few growth opportunities and pay is below average.

    Advice to Management

    Give people doing the work more freedom and let them build great software.
