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

Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Lauderdale, FL – June 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 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.
Free meals at the end of the month, great people, decent benefits
The actual job of cold calling people who have been called 9000 times
Fun environment with vending machines and gaming consoles
Tech Support (Former Employee) – Pompano Beach, FL – May 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.
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.
