    Pros

    Awesome life-work balance, amazing benefits, great culture, great technology. I loved working at Citrix.

    Promotion is usually handled via two weeks' notice - it's very hard to get promoted without threatening to leave.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is by far the best company I've worked for

    -Ability to work from home
    -Great culture
    -Smart employees working on cutting-edge technology
    -Management respects your opinion and is open to new ideas

    Cons

    Have to really 'fight' for promotions. If you don't push it, it won't happen. The process can take 6 months to a year to come to fruition, so start marketing yourself early!

    Infrastructure has been slow to catch up with the rate of company growth. On the bright side, this has been recognized by management and in a few years we'll be a well oiled machine!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    VP's across the organization should share the same Citrix vision. A few departments management ideology doesn't fit the overall vision and can stall or de-rail daily operations and projects.
