    I have been working at Citrix full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work from anywhere. This is a great company that allows you to truly balance work and life in a way that I've not experienced anywhere else. The culture is highly innovative as well.

    Cons

    Is the culture too innovative? It may be. Many acquisitions made by the company failed to yield any real fruit. There are certainly exceptions such as NetScaler and GoTo, but there are many more dead ones that lay it the wake of Citrix. The board should have gotten an operational/execution CEO who has taken a company in excess of $5-10B. Mark T is a great visionary though.

    Advice to Management

    We need a CEO that can execute, not just a visionary

    I have been working at Citrix full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Incredibly energizing, great product, passionate about what I do. Great pay. Managers usually care.

    Cons

    Citrix knows how to complicate everything. Customers can sense this. At least we’re not as bad as Oracle. Navigating internally through a deal is the hardest part of the sales cycle.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify things and let us focus on what we do best.
