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

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

Citrix provides employees with the ability with good work/life balance including the ability to work from home, as needed. This allows employees to take care of their home life which in turn makes them more productive as an employee.

Best stepping stone in Florida
Sales Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMay 11, 2018
Great company, providing awesome technology and service to businesses. University Recruits training program allows for growth and learning, but upward mobility is limited by upper management. Corporate structure leads to fraternity style camaraderie amongst select managers/directors/VP's, which can leave a bad taste in some people's mouths. Regardless, working at Citrix is a career move that will teach you a lot and open many doors.

What was once great
Cloud Solutions Architect (Former Employee) –  FloridaMay 10, 2018
This used to be a great and innovative company that fostered work\life balance and produced an overall great working environment. Regular layoffs washed it all away, innovation became less of a priority and talent retention was impossible.

very good place to work for, if you are not just a contractor
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMay 3, 2018
as a contractor you start working getting paid only $15 an hour, and they may only offer another opportunity to become effective after 3 years, then your salary starts at $20 an hour. but as a contractor we dont have the same benefits as an effective employee.
Pros
free snacks, low paced, laid back, good entertainment during your lunch break, cafeteria serves good and cheap meals.

Avoid at ll costs
HR (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCApril 29, 2018
The company gets into its own way. Great products but horrible company management. They have been through several CEO's in the last few years. Annual lay-offs are how they manage profitability. People leadership is poor and so is morale. Diversity employees quickly exit
Pros
Many beautiful office locations, great ammenities and work spaces
Cons
Employees are expendable, diversity is lacking ( and is not attracted to environment)
