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

Pros

Great Benefits.
Unusually long vacation time.
Good balance between life and work

Cons

Technologically incompetent mid level and senior managers.
Therefore, career opportunities are not based on knowledge or skills.
Employee retention policy is a joke. The best and the brightest seem to be not even recognized.
There is not transfer of knowledge between acquired companies and Citrix.

Advice to Management

If you want to operate high-tech company based on loyalty, I strongly suggest you to try yourself on a political arena.
