Citrix analytics

What a crock of sh--. The thing doesn’t work. It takes a day for it to tell you if something is out of whack of your citrix environment. This product was rushed and shipped to market a year early just so they could show something at synergy. The... read more

Citrix s---s

I hate this company and this job. It’s run by a bunch of Florida idiot clowns that are pumping the stock price by faking data and telling Wall Street anything it wants to hear. The house of cards will crumble when the sec investigation starts Time to... read more

Microsoft buying frame

Twitter Schmoozers

Biggest blunder in the last 24 months

My vote goes to product renaming. Marketing idiots have nothing better to do. We spent a decade building a trustworthy "Netscaler" brand. Management diluted it by adding it in the same sink with crapware Xen and Workspace bundle. Your vote goes to?

Lawsuit strategy is a genius move

DH is a genius. He intends to buy companies but wants to pay them little money. Try to kill the small competitors that are clearly next-gen like Avi Networks and Workspot, and buy them when they come to the negotiation table All the trust shown in... read more

https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2018/05/04/google-cloud-heads-to-citrix-synergy-2018/ Google Cloud COO is another proof of the dying Citrix-Microsoft partnership. Does anyone know why the love affair is no more active?

More firings at Citrix

Has anybody noticed an increased number of firings in the last couple of months at Citrix? I'm not sure what's the reason, but I know of at least five people who were fired for such insignificant things that it's impossible not to suspect something... read more

Citrix is at it again!

I got calls from two friends that worked for Citrix. Both got axed this morning. The method and frequency of layoffs really brings into question the value of the brand going forward. You certainly cannot trust anyone at Citrix to be there anymore... read more
