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

Pros

-They use the tools they make (constantly dogfooding)
-Very flexible on work life balance, and when/where you work (was able to work part of the time remotely from the APAC region while traveling for vacation)
-Good compensation

Cons

-You are kind of always working due to the flexibility of meeting and where you work, and you are never quite sure where the people you need to work with are or what they are doing
-way too many meetings. Sr leaders try to move things forward with constant meetings so often times things get bottlenecked bc no real work is being done

Advice to Management

Keep innovating and don't fall into the innovator's dilemma. Your customers might not know what they really want in the future.

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast growing company with many opportunities to shine...for those willing to put in the work. Jump on the right opportunities and you WILL be rewarded.

    Cons

    As with any fast growing company there can be a lot of unplanned work due to frequent shifts in direction and priorities.

    Advice to Management

    Frequently communicate company strategy, priorities and direction, especially when there are changes, so that everyone can focus on the most important items and avoid spending time on work that is no longer important.

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

    Pros

    The working atmosphere is pleasant with a great company culture and well managed. The technology is best on the market and loved by its customers. Employees are well trained and given a good view of strategic directions.

    Cons

    Turnover can be high in certain regions due to lack of advancement opportunities. Following the Netscaler acquisition the "family" feeling and the "startup mentality" that I liked in the job started slowly to change. The company felt less nimble and personal.

    Advice to Management

    Look internally for good emplyees first. Don't lose sight of the culture that has made Citrix a great company. Continue to invest in your employees. Keep up the good work.
