    Management Please trash them !!

    Technical Support Engineer (Current Employee) Bangalore

    ProsExposure to the new technologies.

    ConsThe management sucks here!! The workstyle has changed drastically. It is no more "fun while working at Citrix".
    The productivity is now measured or basis of the stats. One de-sat and you will be interrogated intensely. This has made engineers to beg for c-sats. Earlier the engineers's qaulity work was enough to convince the customer to provide a positive feedback.
    Learning has come to minimal and the tight schedule adherence is the prime aim.
    The employee retention is very minimal. Many engineers had left which were extremely reliable resource and a boon to the company. I don't know if this is being ignored or if they think they can get the resource immediatley. B.S !!!!
    Even the growth here is very slow. For a postion people are hired from outside, though there are capable candidates for the same position which is disgusting.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand what an employee wants. An employee works more when his work is recognised and is paid what he deserves.
    Employee retention means something. Work for you company not for yourself !!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Software Engineer II (Current Employee) Bangalore

    ProsCulture good. W-L balance good. Decent company in most of things.

    Consmanagement is not so strong when it comes to some teams. No bonus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSome team experiences poor manager with zero managerial experience and expected to lead engineers. Classic case of "Anybody can be a manager?"
