    Pros

    Very kind fellow engineers, HR and management. Great starting salary. All engineers seem to really enjoy their job.

    Cons

    "Training" is actually watching videos or presentations which you just have to nod to every 2 minutes pretending you know what they're talking about. Needs more hands on training.

    Pros

    Citrix makes you feel at home. They take very good care of employees and have all the employee-friendly policies. Fantastic work-life balance. Managers are all super-supportive.

    Cons

    I wouldn't call it exactly a con, But sometimes, workload doesn't allow you to learn other aspects of the job. Or look beyond your work.

    Former Intern, less than 1 year

    First Internship Experience (summer 2020 during COVID-19)

    Pros

    My team had a pretty involved manager who set up weekly 1:1s and was happy to give me a return offer. Work was easy and very chill; people on my team were nice Remote internship saved me from having to figure out where I would live in florida (since there isn't intern housing available; it's a fixed lump sum) Internship experience here helped me get the attention of a lot of other tech companies afterwards, which was great for my career (next internship paid almost double in salary)

    Cons

    My assigned mentor wasn't very responsive on Slack, so I had to reach out to someone else on my team for help Remote experience felt disconnected from other interns due to few intern events Return offer actually was less than current salary (went from $37.69/hr for 2020 to $31/hr for 2021): recruiter said this was due to lump sum miscalculation (a bit questionable honestly) Relocation lump sum decreased in the return offer: went from $3k in 2020 to $2k in 2021 (this and the decreased intern salary = poor intern retention rate) Return offer couldn't be transferred to different location (I would need to reinterview to switch)

    Pros

    -Great work culture -Great office location(right in the central business district) -Very employee-friendly -Door to door cab services -Free food throughout the day -Good investment in the overall well being of the employee -Good RSU's every year. -Decent pay(not above the industry average for sure) -Good work life balance in most of the product groups(except few)

    Cons

    -Outdated technology -The skills you develop at Citrix are not going to take you anywhere in the industry. Citrix advertises itself as a cloud company. Unfortunately, that isn't the reality. This is a gross misrepresentation and is only used as a marketing gimmick to attract talent. A very small percentage of the products are cloud based with the vast majority of them being desktop-based products. This puts you at a serious disadvantage in the industry where the industry is embracing micro service architecture and cloud at a rapid pace. My advice to anyone joining Citrix. If you join any of the desktop development teams, start planning your exit from day 1. Else, you will left very uncompetitive in the industry in India. -Politics in the office but not to a great extent.
