SR. PARTNER ACCOUNT MANAGER (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – October 26, 2018
Citrix has always been known as a leader and pioneer in virtualization. This company is nearly 30 years old and still innovating in big ways. I joined the sales team as a seasoned salesperson. When I first joined, I was really impressed with all the sales and sales process training that was lined up for me. There was a very clear 30-60-90 day plan laid out in order for me to be successful.
Software Test Engineer (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – September 13, 2018
I worked for Citrix for well over 15 years. During this period, I work as a manual test engineer lead and an automation test engineer.
A typical work day was to complete tasks assigned during the Scrum period. There were a lot of helpful people but most of these were fellow engineers and not management. I found that some (not all) managers either have no clue how to motivate their employees or just didn't care to.
When it came to the best part of the job, I have to say that it was simply, "what you were able to work with technology wise." It was hard at times but rewarding all the same.
Great work relationship with fellow software engineers

Citrix Systems was a good company to work for . Excellent Benefits, Free gym amenities, water , healthy snacks. Flexible hours with the ability to work remotely one day each week. Management seems to be a concern.
Sr. Corporate Account Manager / Sales (Former Employee) – Tempe, AZ – August 27, 2018
Citrix was a decent place to work for many years, but when competitors starting taking market share, and the product development team was behind the technology curve we lost many of our customer base. Unfortunately management did not acknowledge that, and they simply tightened the screws making the day to day life of their sales teams very stressful and the goals became unattainable. Citrix was bought out by LogMeIn and I do not know how it is now.
Best part of Citrix: no doubt the people you will work with. Great people who are incredibly down to earth. No one's putting on a false pretense.
Worst part: the company is undergoing a lot of change right now. The expectations have not been clear as far as promotion--the career development is also something the company really needs to work on if it wants to improve its retention rate, specifically on the sales floor. Right now as lead generation you are just another cog in the wheel needed to hit quota not treated as a valuable asset to the company that can be trained and developed for a full career with the company
Free food, nice benefits, all the perks of working in tech, good events
job security, micro-management, not great career development
