Great people and culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than a year

ProsThey focus on maintaining a strong culture and provide good options for flex-work to help with work/life balance. They try to build products and solutions that address current customer needs.

ConsProduct marketing gets ahead of product capability. Static workforce makes career development difficult/slow. Broadening portfolio of offerings is impacting focus and execution.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevote more focus to achieving product maturity, especially for new product lines. More structured career planning is necessary to retain employees if longer-serving staff are staying for life.

Amazing place to work. Nowhere is perfect, but Citrix gets it right far more often than they miss.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Citrix Systems full-time for more than 8 years

ProsEthics, values, vision. Driven to succeed, and willing to take risks along the way.

Conscan feel layered and disconnected. Acquisitions can yield a lot of chiefs.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore focus on end user satisfaction, ease of use, delight. Every Citrix product should feel like GoToMeeting, Dropbox, Evernote...

Citrix is turning its back on its IT community and is becoming a machine

Sales (Current Employee)
Sydney

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

ProsCitrix has some great, relevant and market leading products. Skills in Citrix technology are in demand across all industries. Citrix provides a very flexible workplace.

ConsOver the years Citrix has cultivated a community of partners and customers with strong loyalty. It is now turning into a machine. It has lost that "start-up" feel that encouraged staff to go the extra mile. Citrix in APAC allow their team team to walk over customers and partners in order to reach targets. The result is a team of selfish individuals where morale is low, and a toxic, demotivating atmosphere exists.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor Citrix APAC, lead by example, foster greater teamwork, and create a sales culture where business is conducted in a normal, ethical way.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

a very political organization

Sales and Marketing (Former Employee)

I worked at Citrix Systems

ProsThey offer Good salary, good offices, great benefits..regular overseas trips. A good brand and technology. There is high level autonomy in your role

Consyour ability to play politics is the most important attribute of working at Citrix ,,if you need values driven leadership and strong consistent management -then I would avoid Citrix if you can

Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you go to the expense of doing employee surveys be sure to take on board the feedback and actually act on it

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
