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

Pros

Small teams, Talented people, Time to innovate, Meritocratic, Opportunities to move around and travel a little bit, High end value adding work, If you are interested in OS, Networking and core languages like C/C++ Citrix is the place to be.

Cons

Not a big brand name, Lags behind its competition, Slow growth within the company for an individual and not to confuse customers with too many products, versions and name changes. Needs to be a bit more aggressive on being a Cloud provider.

Advice to Management

Focus on few things and make them better than the biggies, Grow in revenue and market yourselves better

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Gym on site, cafeteria and free healthy snacks

    Cons

    Leadership is not in touch with the organization. It's all about marketing.

    Leadership keeps hiring people from the outside from larger more established organizations to try to resolve internal process issues that can't be fixed because they have promoted managers into Director positions who are Citrix lifers who have no experience in running larger operations. These Directors are threatened by new hires and they refuse to collaborate to make changes that would benefit the company. The work environment is very hostile and secretive and there is no work life balance. Be ready to work nights and weekends and still get nowhere.

    Working remotely is frowned upon and viewed with suspiscion. Systems are not integrated and there is very little collaboration between departments for projects which makes the systems even less compatible.

    By far the worst company I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Replace your Directors and leadership with people who understand the high tech and how to run larger and more streamlined operations
