    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership is quite sound and proactive. I don't really have any recommendations.

    Pros

    In Citrix, you will have good work life balance. Breakfast and lunch is available for free. One of the good thing which I like is the facility to work from home, and no dress code.

    Cons

    Life is cool and learning is limited, like in every other established company. If you want to learn, then better join some startup.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company should provide personal loan facility for employees, so that they can use this facility, whenever they are in some financial trouble.

    Pros

    Technology is the only thing that would let you survive and learn

    Cons

    Growth opportunities are less. Management is biased when it comes to providing the opportunity. No work - life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire some technical manager who knows something about product rather than managing people.

    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 - Customer Service Associate in Bangalore
    Former Employee - Customer Service Associate in Bangalore

    I worked at Citrix Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Only that employee is given opportunity to get certifications which will be company sponsor

    Cons

    Lot of politics than politics which exist in India. Very unprofessional environment. People dont get promotions based on their hard work. Very cheap environment to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of taking feedback from tls they also need to listen to every employee what they have to say. If the management did something effective cheap politics would not have existed there. Worst place i have ever worked. May be companies other than Bangalore is good but not sure.
