Topics regarding layoffs at Citrix Systems Inc.
Citrix offered me today and i used to read on this site for my current company when they did layoffs. You guys are expert, please share what you think of a long terms?
Must be hard to recruit new hires these days so have to advertise growth?
Citrix is under-performing on revenue in a growing market. The market for VDI as a whole grew 5.5% year over year from 2016 to 2017. In this same time Citrix revenue dropped 2.2 percent. In the VDI market Citrix has more than 10 competitors and all... read more
Citrix stock buyback and dividends program is exhibiting DH’s main move Keep Elliott happy and keep the job. Why bother investing in R&D?
It’s great visiting our @Citrix teams around the world. Thank you to everyone here in Nanjing for the warm welcome. -DH Consider more jobs going to China. Don’t duck with the CFO-CEO. He understands excel only.
Tons of examples but this is a good one. In 2009, Citrix publicly made fun of using UDP for ICA protocol: https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2009/11/12/how-many-protocols-does-it-take-to-deliver-a-great-user-experience/ One of the major design flaws in... read more
Heard there will be annual staff trimming and adjustments in the fall . Right now they are hoping attrition will take care of the numbers but there are many hanging on for a package so no one is volunteering to leave on their own. This sounds about... read more
Citrix is having to rewrite the products to run from the cloud as cloud native. So far they are struggling to get the management parts done. In the meantime they have born in the cloud competitors plus service providers who run Citrix on-prem... read more
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
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
Confirmed that Microsoft is buying San Mateo based fra.me software. They have also been having talks with workspot in Cupertino to buy them. Looks like the noose is circling the floridiots and they don’t realize it yet.
Amazon is about to announce a new End User Computing Service. Citrix won’t need to worry about renaming Xen. It’s name will be dead and gone soon.
M-F---ers shipped this today https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/provisioning/cloud-connector.html
Someone is buying Frame. Surprised?
Not even 500 customers in prod on XA/XD express after so many engineering years
https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2018/05/31/not-your-granddaddys-citrix/ Wow, we use docker!
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?
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
Have we heard anything about the next layoffs round?
Please share your experiences. I argued about improving products rather than finding excuses and was told to shut up by engineering leaders.
not sure what going on. tried sign up for teamblind.com on my phone but never receiving sign up emails to citrix email. anyone here have app?
Who is looking forward to the great citrix dog and pony show this week at synergy. I’m sure it will be followed by layoffs next week.
This looks like the new citrix playbook. Fire your people instead of giving them decency with a layoff package. http://www.businessinsider.com/signs-youre-about-to-be-fired-2015-9
Short sighted decisions by Citrix leadership are leading to terrible technical support. I have had several unresolved tech support cases open for months. One of the cases was initially being worked by a support tech who was fired in October. This... 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?
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
Announcement coming in a week
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
Citrix has lost its edge on technology innovation and is now just milking a single cow with no one else in the herd. A single cow is just a one hit wonder and will spell demise in the near future. Add to that the no nothing people like CR into the... read more

Fort Lauderdale-based global software company Citrix Systems saw first-quarter revenues increase 5 percent to $697 million, up from $663 million in the same period a year ago, the company said Wednesday... read more
About the fate of the company. Looks like it might be a takeover or acquisition target . Citrix may finally be acquired by a bigger more serious company.
just curious what you all would do if you got a 6 month all expenses paid up front one time payment (including COBRA medical premiums paid up front for 6 months, all RSUs in the 6 month window vested). would you all go on a world cruise get a job... read more
We have made a lot of leadership changes in the last 36 months. Is there any accountability? I have serious concerns about the new org structure and the degrading quality of our products : netscaler used to be the most solid product in the industry... read more
It’s all about the stealthy layoffs now. Just look at what they did to the social media team. Laid off 4 people and didn’t say a word at the marketing all hands. ER shows a slide with his job openings and then lies when asked why he had job titles... read more
So I'm doing some planning and trying to figure out what Citrix might give as a package for employees with 5 or more years of time at the company. Does anyone recall the formula they used during the last layoff?
