    Great Company, Problematic Middle Management

    Former Employee - Senior Escalation Engineer in Alpharetta, GA (US)

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The Citrix culture is amazing and their mantra of "Work hard, play hard" is evident in everything they do. Great community. Good benefits and salary. Opportunities to work remotely in most cases and a causal dress code. As mentioned in another review, there are also good opportunities for advancement and regular performance reviews. _Direct_ (with emphasis) management trusts and respects you and treats you as a professional. Beverage and snack perks, and a hot breakfast on Fridays.

    Cons

    A somewhat new addition to the middle management with the Support organization has a viewpoint that runs in stark contrast to the Citrix culture and as such, working within this area has become less about caring for the customer and more about metrics. At the time of writing, salary offerings/raises are trending in a negative direction in comparison to the rest of the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick hard to your core values of treating all people with respect, honesty, integrity, and compassion and shake off anyone in the organization that doesn't meet that standard.

    I worked at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Lots of free food and drinks, fun break rooms, great coworkers.

    Cons

    Very monotonous, didn't see many people getting promoted, lots of people "hanging out" rather than working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote hard workers, keep the fun atmosphere but maybe encourage those who seem to not do much but talk and play games to do a little more work.
