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

Pros

Great work environment, worked with a great team on interesting products. Compensation is on par with the rest of the industry, maybe a bit better.

Cons

Too much politics. While working at a company of this size is bound to involve dealing with people's interests, this was to a point that was actually fairly damaging to productivity. Looking good was more important than actually producing good work.

Advice to Management

Flatten the hierarchy, put in place real processes for identifying good employees, reward them and get rid of the many that are just here for the ride.

    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company culture and work life balance makes work a pleasure

    Cons

    Fast-paced, ever-changing environment - not for the faint of heart.

    Advice to Management

    Let you employees know that you have their best interests in mind and have concern for their career path.

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

    Pros

    A great place for work/life balance that strives to maintain the hipness of a Silicon Valley-like startup with modern facilities, on-site cafe, company gym, free snacks/beverages, etc.

    Cons

    Due to high perks/demand to work for this high-perk company, your leverage for salary and career advancement will be diminished. This is a great company to end up at after you've built up your credentials and salary in other companies.
