I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Work-life balance (our story)
Dynamic - depending on role, pace of change is fast. Strong adaptation skills required.
Respectful - Have hardly ever been in a situation where others are disrespected.
Great people - Overall, smart people that like to work collaboratively and want to help Citrix succeed.

Cons

Location, location - As with most technology companies, the cool kids with the cool jobs are in the West Coast.
Rewards tenure/loyalty vs results - While results dont go unnoticed, tenure and loyalty can sometimes lead to poor decisions with staff selection.
Talent management - Long tenures at same role leads to some staleness and resistance to change. Needs better talent management with programs designed to recycle capable staff through the organization.

Advice to Management

MarkT has done a tremendous job. Like every high performing team, sometimes you need to bring in senior talent from the outside, something that does not happen often for "non-strategic" departments (those mostly based out of Fort Lauderdale). Ultimately, these organization can have a big effect on Citrix's ability to conduct business.
