    Pros

    Great work culture, Mark T is a visionary and his capability to re - invent the vision and carry the company forward is exemplary, clear introspection and willingness to change impress me a lot about the company.

    Cons

    Product quality and Technical Support are areas to be really looked into.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue the company culture and please be more aggressive in taking on competition and talking about what we believe are areas of growth.

    Perks - Bangalore office has cabs, food, drinks and snacks. Kind of cool. I even used to do the breakfast at office

    Cons

    Compensation - It is not too much, just enough.
    Growth depends on the team you are in.

    Pros

    Great work-life balance overall. A lot of good leadership is also present.but few bad fish dilute the benefits and stop Citrix from really taking off.

    Cons

    Most of the products are losing the race which means one can not blindly follow the leadership but has to be critical of their decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in HR. The company image is not really a match for the real potential.
