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

Pros

Citrix is a vibrant company that is constantly changing and does a great job of helping employees manage that change.
We are constantly working with new technology, and we're encouraged to try new things and be creative in what we do everyday.

Cons

We can use a little help with career development programs - currently there is no clear way to move around the organization and no program to expose employees to other facets of the business.

    Pros

    Great Atmosphere with Leaders that care. The company is growing at a fast rate allowing for your career to grow easily within the company.

    Cons

    I haven't been in the company a long time, but in the short time I've been there I would say that there are many things happening within the company, which is great. The only problem with this is there are so many activities happening that some weeks it can be difficult to do your job, and regardless of what's happening you always have to reach your numbers.

    I worked at Citrix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, and some great first level managers.
    Engineering managers (at the levels where I worked with them) have excellent technical ability.
    Engineer-friendly culture - being a "geek" is good.
    Do a good job of getting rid of the occassional hiring mistake.
    Extremely flexible about hours, locations, etc.
    Use their own products, which work well for things like remote access
    They seem to be good at marketting, profitability, growth etc.
    Better than average at integrating acquisitions without destroying their culture/ability to be effective. 3 years ago I would have said "Great at integrating ..."

    Cons

    Support departments (HR, facilities, IT) are getting bureaucratic, paternalistic, and generally interfering with getting the job done. Uniformity is now trumping effectiveness. This appears to be an ongoing trend - still not at an extreme level, but painful when compared to 5 years ago.
    A lot of conference calls between departments separated by 12 hours of time zones (California and India) which generally involve half the participants working in the late evening (9-10 PM) local time

    Advice to Management

    Rein in the would-be bureaucrats in facilities etc.
