Pros

Very consensus driven and ethical company working in some hot areas of high tech. Flexible work styles that we called "work shifting" to balance work and personal life. Partners loved working with Citrix given the positive reputation for our easy to use products.

Cons

Decisions can be slow given the need for buy-in and consensus up the food chain. Lots of disparate applications and systems so pioneering new infrastructure for partners can take awhile.

Advice to Management

Push down decision-making to lower levels and hold the parties accountable.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    balance between work and personal time. work from home/remote. laid back. still growing fast. strong balance sheet - so quite stable.

    Cons

    not innovative. engineering innovation got stalled, mostly growing via marketing/sales and by taking over other companies. If you are expecting cutting edge engineering, maybe not.

    Advice to Management

    same as above. senior engineering managers don't last long - high turnover rate. continuous reorganization of engineering dept is not taking anybody anywhere.

    "Incompetent Management with a lot of deadwood posing as valued contributors."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    - Go to Meeting access
    - Flexible work hours
    - Silicon Valley location is okay

    Cons

    - Terrible company work etiquette. Managers call way too many meetings and then don't show up or are always late. No agendas or goal oriented time lines. When not in fire drill mode managers cannot be located. Reactionary and shoddy work ethic. Expectations are very low for deliverables.

    - Product updates are pushed live with glaring usability issues. Being first is more important than product reliability and usability.

    - CEO is invisible to employees. Idolizes Apple. Gives direct orders to "make it more like Apple".

    - High level of cronyism in mid and upper level management. Tyrants are allowed to make unqualified changes to product in the development stage over-riding months of preparation work.

    - Ugly cubicle farm office environment with few perks. Lack luster cafeteria in building that no one goes to.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the deadwood. Too many employees are riding the gravy train without contributing anything. Need to update company perks and benefits in order to attract work class employees. Citrix is an innovation follower not a leader.
