    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Citrix is a vibrant company that is constantly changing and does a great job of helping employees manage that change.
    We are constantly working with new technology, and we're encouraged to try new things and be creative in what we do everyday.

    Cons

    We can use a little help with career development programs - currently there is no clear way to move around the organization and no program to expose employees to other facets of the business.

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

    Pros

    Fairly relaxed company. Friendly company, especially within engineering. Not a dog eat dog culture. Have acquired several very good companies with intelligent people and great products. Slightly above average at integrating acquisitions.

    Cons

    Company run by Sales and not by the CEO. A Florida boys network. Same Florida cronies alternate positions at the exec level. Company is sales and marketing driven. Not product oriented and hence all organically created products are complex and lack quality. Product managers of non-acquired products (organic products) are very poor, especially at the vp and sr dir level. there are lots of mediocre talent. Upper management is poor. Citrix is unable to attract good talent. this is especially true at senior management level. Any good talent has come in through acquisitions, but most leave as soon as their golden handcuffs come off. Lots of favoritism with existing poor managers given preferential treatment (leading to many junior VPs) over newly acquired talent with proven track records. Salaries are poor compared to the rest of the valley. This is partly due to it being a Florida company which doesn't understand the valley situation.
