I have been working at Citrix as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

> Best in class marketing practices comparable to that of Marketo and HubSpot
> Products are amazing especially GoToMeeting
> Management has strong communication and on boards with you right tools to be successful
> They seem to care about you as a person and an employee
> They make you feel like you belong

Cons

> It's an awesome company so people don't leave. Opportunities to move up ladder might be a bit slower than start ups located in Silicon Valley
> HQ is Goleta (Santa Barbara) which has pro / cons of its own. It's like living in Hawaii where you may get island fever.

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

    Pros

    Product and vision are very solid

    Cons

    Certain regions of this company are toxic. Customers view Citrix as a pushy company always asking for the order.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the micro management. Weekly business reviews are crushing and crude. Talk to the customers without always asking for something. I have at least 5 customers that will not let my management team onsite.
