Use to be fun
Software Test Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLSeptember 27, 2018
Working at Citrix use to be fun and exciting. Now that the company has gotten bigger it has to change and become what mature companies do. They become slow and ridgid.
Pros
Free drinks and Friday bagel day.
Cons
Have to be with the right crowd to advance.

Extreme workload
WW Support Readiness Manager (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLSeptember 18, 2018
Payment is good, however, the stress level is very high. It does not pay the extreme hours and lack of work-life balance.

Work from home is almost always available.
Pros
Work from home, flexible hours
Cons
stress, workload

Citrix Systems
Software Test Engineer (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLSeptember 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.
Pros
Great work relationship with fellow software engineers
Cons
Too many managers that just didn't care enough.

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.

Likeable

Be likeable and give the managers the platform to continuously speak of themselves in your presence and you will be there for a very long time. Its a favoritism game there
Pros
product knowldege is great
Cons
No degree, no opportunity

Decent Company
Sr. Corporate Account Manager / Sales (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZAugust 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.

They have the right idea, the execution is just a little off
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJune 26, 2018
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
Pros
Free food, nice benefits, all the perks of working in tech, good events
Cons
job security, micro-management, not great career development

Disappointing
Consultant (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 14, 2018
Large scale RIFs occur annually. Minimal job stability. Political infighting and territory wars hamper projects. This was quite a learning experience.

horrible.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 14, 2018
Citrix used to be a great company to work for years ago. Terrible management, politics, cut throat, and human resources is a nightmare. If you're lucky to be a 'chosen one" there, count your blessings, but even then your job is never safe. Company has no loyalty to its employees.

Citrix is great, just not SB sales
Corporate Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCJune 13, 2018
Citrix Raleigh is a great place to work, but certain things got to me after awhile. The people and the perks will keep you happy, but if you're on the sales team, the actual job will suck out your soul.
Pros
Free meals at the end of the month, great people, decent benefits
Cons
The actual job of cold calling people who have been called 9000 times

Work hard. Work Harder.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLJune 9, 2018
The people at Citrix are awesome.

Very welcoming and inclusive company culture.

They (rightfully) expect a lot from their employees.

Not led by the most progressive / forward thinking group, nor the least.

They might not stand out as much as some other companies and can improve in certain areas, but an opportunity with Citrix is definitely nothing to sneeze at.

FACILITIES INCLUDE
Ample options of Snacks and Beverages on each floor
Break Rooms to Relax & Decompress
Cafeteria and Eateries on Site
Pros
People, Benefits & Pay
Cons
Your Traditional Corporate Cliches & Shia LeBeouf

Fun environment with vending machines and gaming consoles
Tech Support (Former Employee) –  Pompano Beach, FLMay 26, 2018
When I first started working in the building, I had just landed a job working customer service for a company called "Grasshopper". After a while of working on the computer and taking calls, I was offered to start training in order to work on the Citrix side of the office. I enjoyed this job very much because I worked with people that I knew, the location was wonderful, and you could enjoy yourself during your break.
Pros
Overtime and working with friendly people
Cons
Morning commute was overwhelming

Started as a great work environment
Customer Success Manager - ShareFile (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMay 21, 2018
When first hired, Citrix was an awesome work environment. About two and a half years in, there was a shift and things started changed. It became more of a corporate environment. Alot of managerial changes and rumors of money issues within the company. Eventually, layoffs happened and many were effected.
Pros
snacks, chill environment
Cons
managers are the worst
