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

    Pros

    I joined just shortly after the new CEO (and had a beer with him!) Great vision; the company really turning a corner from what I hear.

    - Great work-life balance
    - Professional management
    - Great facilities
    - Competitive pay for my position
    - Driving leadership

    Cons

    - Politics, like any organisation, plays a huge factor at the higher levels, and it shows, especially amongst the smaller sites. Hard to promote from what I hear.

    Advice to Management

    Need the capacity to get people well deserved recognition on an equal, objective playing field

    I worked at Citrix full-time

    Pros

    Startup(ish) attitude (free coffe and drinks, that sort of thing), flexible hours, you can work remotely almost on a daily basis if you want. Good work-life balance after all.

    Cons

    Old products, no ideas, no innovation, the company struggles to keep up.
    Now they say they want to move towards the cloud, but in actuality they just keep laying off people to cut costs.
    The latest CEO simply wants to sell the company and call it a day.
