    I have been working at Citrix Systems

    Pros

    Citrix india has great line of sight. Probably the best in India. It also is one of those companies where the CEO visits india almost every year. So they not only pay lip service on India center is important, but really do it.

    Cons

    Houses all the different function in one location. Normalizing some times affects some of the benefits of Engineering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits including a door-to-door cab service, yearly book allowance etc. Not very rigid org structure and processes. There is always space for doing your own thing within the company.

    Cons

    There is lack of accountability for many teams. Just like anywhere else, you will find teams that are aggressive and then there are teams that just slack around and dont contribute much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    360 degree reviews and more objective measurement of individual and group contributions.

    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Bangalore
    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Bangalore

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - Good exposure to new technologies introduced by Citrix
    - Good infrastructure
    - Oppurtunity to learn new products

    Cons

    - Probably now the company is one of the best places to work, how Citrix the same does not hold good for Citrix R&D India Private Limited. Do not compare the work culture of Citrix Systems with the indian arm as the management does not believe in ideas coming out of associates rather prefer doing it as directed by parent organization.
    - Work life balance is not good when compared to Citrix Systems especially Support arm of the company needs to add more value to work life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Stop implementing on whats done in other companies rather do it original and increase productivity.
    - Asking support staff to extend as a part of the job should be stopped.

    I worked at Citrix Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1) Working on Cutting Edge Technology
    2) Great Perks like cab facilities, spacious office place and work from home facilities

    Cons

    1) There was so much of internal politics in the company.
    2) I felt that the politics in the few teams acts as a huge block for career growth.
    3) No empathy towards employees. Found few seniors with very aggressive attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to reduce politics in the team by whichever means.

    I have been working at Citrix Systems full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great technologies getting developed, many of them being industry firsts.
    Great work culture
    Good work-life balance
    Overall good place to grow your career technically

    Cons

    Hikes are moderate and promotion it seems depends on number of years you have been working. Food is average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please ensure that appropriate salary is given for high performing and hard working people.With freshers getting more salary and benefits than senior people working out here. It should be scaled. Promotions should be based on quality of work not entirely on experience.

    A good work culture. Flexible work and balanced environment. People treat each other with respect. Opportunity to work on leading products and technology.

    Not the most flashy company. Could do better on comp and stock. Office facility in Hyderabad and Bangalore could be beefed up to be on par with US and UK standards.
