Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Lots to learn
- Tons of Great People
- Cheap Medical unless you have family then it's around 500/Month
- Metrics are visible to everyone.
- Great Culture.

Cons

Pay: there is a mass exodus from Citrix for 40-60% better money, crap raises, promotions are based on favoritism(Ft Lauderdale), New Software Releases have NO documentation and support just needs to figure it out.

Advice to Management

None, they won't listen. Ask your self why half of the XenDesktop Senior department just left.

    Pros

    The Synergy messages are great.
    The products look good.
    The usabilty of the products are improving.

    Cons

    If they could just back them up the claims.
    I don't think the average customer cares about the fancy widgets and gadgets that are shown at Synergy events.

    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.
