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

    Pros

    Great team and friendly, positive environment. Very good pay and benefits - overachievers can earn large sums and they do look after you if you are putting in the work. The Workspace story is starting to come together and resonating with the market...

    Cons

    Starting to get a little bit too controlled around deal management but understandable why. Still some negativity and confusion around Citrix strategy in market but it is turning.

    Advice to Management

    Focus much more communication to sales teams around product and build excitement for the future not just around numbers, targets and P&L - numbers are important but not everything - let’s get back to what made Citrix awesome to begin with - cool technology solutions that make work easier for people! Get the messaging and tech right and numbers will follow...

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

    Pros

    Use to be a great workplace but there's been far too many reduncies. Flexible working hours. Can work from home

    Cons

    Far too many reduncies nearly every 6 months. Very low staff morale. If you're not made redundant you resign. Cloud strategy non existent. Very political. Management in APAC just don't listen

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent. Focus on strategy. Work on your internal core values otherwise more staff wil reign

    "Some senior managers lead by bad example."

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Nothing much actually. Situation has deteriorated quite badly. Offices are getting smaller. Employee numbers are smaller too. Got retrenched by coward managers.

    Cons

    Nothing good. People are let go every quarter quietly. Employees are not motivated. Just a monthly pay check.
    Political. Work processes getting complicated. Lack of trust between employees to get work done. Miserable environment.

    Advice to Management

    Work on your internal core values
