    Promising beginning, quick downfall. (SaaS Division)

    Corporate Sales Representative (Former Employee) Sydney

    ProsOverseas SKO Trip
    Weekly Morning Tea

    ConsLower than industry pay
    Location well outside Sydney
    Promotes work/life balance with no evidence of such
    Promotes remote workstyles with no evidence of such
    Poor management
    Lack of on-going support/training
    Very high staff turn over - 30+ in 18 months, when looking at the actual size of the division (peak of 27) this is insane

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at:
    - Compensation
    - Location
    - Training

    Good sales people DO NOT necessarily make good management.

    Focus on developing your staff.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great people and culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    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)

    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...

    Great Culture, and work life balance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Sydney

    ProsGreat team, laid back environment with plenty of resources available to expand you knowledge. Growing innovative company with plenty of potential. Highly recommend to work here if possible.

    ConsToo comfortable. Very easy to sit on the job. Sometimes it may be difficult to find answers to what you are looking for however this can happen when working for a larger organisation.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue doing what you are doing. Company does all it can for the employees and you will continue to sustain great staff retention.

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

    Sales (Current Employee) Sydney

    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.
