    I have been working at Citrix full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I work wth a fab team that al get on well, work hard and strive for a common goal. Immediate management is great.

    Cons

    The culture is rotten to the core, particularly where it come to HR. This seems to be common throughout the organisatio They really are the worst of all of them and seem to be teflon coated. I believe this is a common problem through the US, APAC and EMEA. Why has nobody ever looked into this!!

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the impact HR have on the business. It certainly isn't a positive one.

    Smart people. Lots of development products and opportunities to learn new things.
    Developers are open to communication and are friendly.

    Lots of internal software to use, the build system is a bit slow and it can take ages to get things done especially if you're product has so many moving parts

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the right people.

    Pros

    Good culture, employees are respected, pay and benefits are competitive. Having flexible working hours and the ability to work from home is very cool.

    Cons

    Lots of churn in senior management / board level, hopefully things have now settled with the appointment of a new CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on core products. Address real customer problems and continue to improve product quality by simplifying where possible.

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

    Pros

    Reasonable salary and benefits, not market leading

    Cons

    Confused & inferior management. Almost bullying attitude. High turnover of talented individuals (technical & sales).
    Citrix is lacking in direction and will do anything to get new licence sales. 2 years ago it was customer retention / satisfaction, now it's get the orders in any way possible.
    Confusing product lines and not all fully integrated, difficult to propose a REAL solution.
    If you are not one of the 'in crowd' you have no protection and expect no real help.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously look at management within EMEA, a lot believe that they are managers but are not!
    Only manager with vision and personality is JDR

    Pros

    Some of the smartest and brightest people I've ever worked with. Truly collaborative environment. Very little pulling 'rank'. Great benefits, good working environment, modern offices.

    Cons

    Constant changes in direction and its strategy, confused product portfolio. Seemingly annual restructuring (AKA - Redundancies); knee-jerk reactions to share price.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing direction!
