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

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)

Lack of work/life balance
Finance Manager - Revenue Operations (Current Employee) –  Fort Lauderdale, FLMarch 28, 2018
Lots of late hours and weekends during non close time frames. The company promotes "work from anywhere" but employees have to be in the office to work late hours and weekends. There is a feel that the hours are expected and we should be on call on weekends.
Pros
Cafe for employees, great salary
Cons
no work/life balance

All the bells and whistles but no growth.
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 15, 2018
Citrix tries hard to get you engaged with your job and coworkers which can seem like 'forced fun' sometimes. Yes they have all the toys and stocked break rooms but the culture they project distracts you from an overall flat organization with limited market and career growth.

excellent experience
Senior Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 13, 2018
Citrix collaboration products were exciting to take to market because they are very much needed in the SMB/MidMarket space. I would work there again, which is my metric for reviews.
Pros
Cool building, useful products
Cons
it's work.

proceed with caution
Corporate Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCMarch 6, 2018
Stressful at least for sales. Hit numbers or you will not last long here at all. Constantly making changes. Culture has changed a lot but still pretty good, building, and people are the best part. You have to really want to be here to succeed but it can be very draining.
Pros
Snacks
Cons
Monthly Quotas

Fun place with alot of potential
Senior Sales Executive (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCFebruary 28, 2018
Teams were changed up constantly, seats were rearranged monthly, employee turn over rate was so high it made those who made it longer than a month's head spin. Cool technology and very fast paced rewarding sales cycle. Not for the faint or weak.

Fun place to work, but constant concern for job security
Corporate Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCFebruary 20, 2018
Typical sales grind with a churn and burn mentality. You can always be replaced and many/most are. The down time is fun and snacks, games, party atmosphere is always at the ready. Consideration for the individual is minimal and there is only one path for growth.
Pros
Free lunches and snacks, fun sponsored activities, weekly all-hands, no cap on commission
Cons
No job security, cheering

Awesome
Sr. Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  Mountain View, CAFebruary 19, 2018
Awesome. WFH was allowed. I worked almost everyday for 3-4 months. I would only go to office when I want to be outside and sort of sick of being at home. My manager was great. Lunch was provided almost 1-2days/week.

Great Place to work in some departments
Manager (Former Employee) –  Ft. Lauderdale, FLFebruary 19, 2018
Great Place to work in some departments ... some areas have good work life balance while others don't. Working until midnight on the last day every 3 months and long work hours the week before. Also people are fake and insecure so create a lot of toxicity

Great atmosphere but a struggle to hit quotas
Inside Sales (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCFebruary 13, 2018
Typical day at work is coming in getting the list you are supposed to call and start working I learned a lot about prospecting and finding "pain points" to overcome objections. The culture is very friendly and open but the hardest part of the job is having to call the same prospects over and over on outdated lists with a very "challenging" quota. The most enjoyable part of my job is basically "running my own business" with no micro-management
Pros
Great benefits, laid back atmosphere and no micro-managing
Cons
Very challenging quotas with outdated and burned out prospect lists

None
