    Lacks technical deep-dives and transparency towards its product issues etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Posses great products and solutions so greater transparency and proactiveness towards its customers and public in general. More strong go-to-market strategy may be needed.

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

    Pros

    * Truly great work life balance
    * Flexible timings. You are supposed to finish your work. Noone bothers when you come in or go out. As long as you finish your work
    * Decent free canteen. Snacks,lunch, breakfast is free.
    * Very good culture. No shouting no putting down of employees. CEO to Director very approachable.
    * If lucky can get to work on Win Drivers, HTML5.

    Cons

    * Pay below market rate
    * Managers are yes men to US-UK Management
    * Work has stagnated. Too much focus on integrating existing products. Less focus on developing new products
    * Hazy roadmap
    * Plunging sales
    * All decisions taken by US-UK management. Indian managers hardly have any say in these matters
    * Promotions are heavily based on budget your group has.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Invest in developing new products
    * Diversify in non-enterprise products
    * Give some autonomy to regional centers (eg Bangalore) to make own decisions,
