Someone mentioned customer satisfaction here. Customer satisfaction used to be very important but now the situation is much different. Citrix doesn't seem to care at all anymore. There are too many reasons for dissatisfaction, aren't there?
If the acquisition is at $104 why does the stock trade at such a discount? Is the market building in a renegotiation of the price since the company is loosing so many customers to cloud services like AWS Workspaces and Azure windows desktop.
I am mostly asking if people over 60 get any additional items, such as healthcare access for longer than the usual one month? I know that some companies make such allowances for older employees (in some cases even for those who are over 50) but I... — read more
Let’s face it , the greatest horror unleashed on the rank n file people has been brought on by the executive management while they got multi-million bailout deals. Do any of them feel any remorse or any guilt from the misery they have happily laid on... — read more
Then ask yourself if you'd be happy at work if layoffs were not an issue. Just disregard future layoffs completely and make your decision based on that. If you realize that you'd still be miserable, then it's time to go. But if you are satisfied with... — read more
Such a sad story. 2020, pandemic causing the world to go remote and Citrix usage and growth hits a phenomenal stride. Then the ex-SAP clowns jack quotas and absolutely wreck an amazing trajectory and buy overpriced products like Wrike that may be... — read more
There are many complaints that Citrix has no vision and that this is one of the main reasons why so many are leaving. I agree, I’m also here just because of pay and I’m leaving as soon as I get a better offer, but I’m curious about what is your... — read more
I always wonder who reads these posts. The disgruntled, the exited, Donna Kimmel, guys from Elliott ? Any rank-and-file from Citrix? For the rank-and-file, this message is for you: All of you are hard working, dedicated souls (a few lazy apples... — read more
Tech layoffs accelerate in June, with more than 7,000 losing their jobs so far "May saw more than 16,000 tech layoffs. And since the beginning of June, more than 7,000 more positions have been... — read more
Heard from a friend more cullings are coming. The stock market collapse is causing the overlords to look for better “employee capital utilization “ so that means another layoff in layman’s terms. Uggg not again..,
Almost got lucky twice. Now he’ll have to find a real job.
The stock is down to $97. Thoma Bravo just renegotiated one of their deals. No doubt Elliott and Vista are combing through their agreements to find an excuse to renegotiate the deal price, given the market rout. If they succeed, then those who are... — read more
The Tibix masters are looking for cost reductions before the acquisition. Massive culling coming.
I'll be honest, it's a real challenge for me now to find a new job and that's the only reason I'm still here. It seems that the biggest danger of staying here for a long time is having your skills become obsolete? Of course, having up-to-date... — read more
If you are just starting your career, it's better to find an opportunity elsewhere where you can stay longer and contribute more to business and grow along with it. If you are in mid-career, you need to set the path for future growth. The reasons... — read more
I'm getting tired of middle management's interference in our work. I had to make countless changes because they think its more efficient/less costly, when in most cases the opposite is true. Of course, if you try to say something you are ignored. Our... — read more
Its a scam change my mind. Its a scam for the employees and for the customers. With emails telling us not to provide the services that the customer paid for and was promised. (Let me clarify that. We were told how we were going to be able to work... — read more
Who else is waiting for tibco to take over to see if a severance package is coming? Do we have a date for the yet? Any thoughts of what offices may be closed if jobs are outsourced?
I "love" how the work culture is such that we're now expected to work long hours - something that was considered going the extra mile before - and we're getting no recognition for it. They slowly morphed the expectations to consider more the norm and... — read more
This was a great post that sums up Citrix. “ It is simply impossible to do good work here. You get blocked by entrenched and incompetent managers and stupid processes. The place is rife with incompetence and politics.”
Is anyone really working? Is anyone really motivated to do any work? With the groups being decimated (CVAD, sales, Citrix Cloud), how does anyone even get motivated to do a damn thing? What tricks are being used to get yourself up in the morning to... — read more
I don't think the leadership realizes just how low the morale is right now and what it could mean for the company. It's not just pushing out the best talent, it's also ki----g productivity in those who decide to stay (or more precisely, those who... — read more
When evaluating an offer from another company, how does one assess the current job from Citibco? What is the value assigned to the risk of some change to one's position/salary/bonus/RSUs? Assume Citibco is paying you 100K with potential for 20%... — read more
If you were hoping to leave and didn't manage to get a better offer by now or if you were simply procrastinating thinking the job market would always be this good, it's now too late. All major and not-so-major tech companies have instituted hiring... — read more
To be perfectly honest, the only thing that is keeping me at this company is the thought that there will be advancement opportunities as there is a lot of attrition in lower management tier. Turns out that that is not the case. Instead of promoting... — read more
I left several months ago but still have stock through ESPP. Watching the price I'm wondering why it's not trading much closer to the $104 deal price. I did read about reluctance of finance companies to cover the debt based on higher interest rates... — read more
Does anyone else have an inner screaming voice suggesting the Wrike acquisition from Vista and their subsequent acquisition of Citrix, inclusive of Wrike, at a heavy discount to recent share price moving averages was part of a single plan? Does... — read more
Many of us have flown the coup. Curious how things are going in terms of: Latest update and close date on the purchase, I.e. when Tibco becomes sole owner? Any big names that have departed? What is the latest line of bulls—t that is being fed... — read more
We're now in the constant state of waiting to get hit in the next layoff round that can happen at any point in time. I don't know anybody who is still thinking about Citrix long-term. It's all about making it another day or another week or another... — read more
Every of the three years I've been here has been pure he-l for me. I've never worked in such a toxic culture before so that was a shock. Then there's the fact that the workload keeps increasing and nobody gives a damn that it's no longer possible to... — read more
With the cost of everything going up the pay stays the same. I am not sorry but when people from other states working remote get paid a crazy salary for the same work we do and buy houses down here for $550K cash pushing the locals out of the market... — read more
People are leaving here. Expectations from employees have long become unrealistic. What can Citrix do to keep its employees? Unfortunately, I think there is little that can be done. Everyone is leaving because of years of bad management here. This... — read more
How can a company function without integrity, honesty, or transparency? It can't, and Citrix is the best example of that. The lack of those three key qualities has left us in the position we're in right now. I don't expect to see anything change... — read more
What's with all of the new technical program manager roles being posted all of the sudden?
Has anyone in engineering received a retention bonus? If so, did you just straight up give an ultimatum to your manager to give you a retention bonus or you quit? Also how big was the bonus?
I think those at the top only care about their compensation and bonuses. If they really cared about the future of this company, everything would be much different here. None of the leaders looks worried about the future of this company.
I know a lot of people are stressing over what's coming, but as somebody who has already been impacted, I can tell you that things are not as bleak as they seem. There are still many companies that offer better pay and benefits and do more... — read more
My personal impression is that customers are increasingly frustrated. How could they not be, right?
The execs at Citrix never adopted OKRs. If they did, they would have not been in this situation
