How are there openings being posted on LinkedIn for Citrix? Like who wants to join this company? It is a mess.
We should find out quarterly results soon. Why does it seem to me that Q4 results will be a real debacle?
I have an amazing manager who has been doing his best to make my and my team's work easier and to lessen our burdens as much as he can - even when he personally gets in trouble over it. He's just one man so he can't undo what the company is doing but... — read more
I regret terribly that I lost a lot of time in this company. This has become a place only for those who have no other option. The worst thing for me is that I came here from a company where the situation was much better than here. I couldn’t have... — read more
No word from Calderoni at Citrix FKO? I wonder why? Selling the company or playing golf.... If you can't be bothered to show up and share your thoughts for $55M then what is the purpose of you being at the helm? Willing to be corrected if I'm wrong — read more
Anyone got insight into expected vcp % for our bonus payouts?
I came here from a company where the management was terrible. However, even there the leadership did not make such d-mb business decisions as is the case here. If this is not the company where the d-mbest business decisions are being made then it... — read more
Sometimes I visit this forum to see if there are any new rumors about layoffs and then I notice how people basically talk about Citrix and the future of this company, whether the business strategy is good or not etc. Why care so much about a company... — read more
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-01-14/citrix-is-said-to-be-in-advanced-talks-for-elliott-vista-buyout It’s very likely to happen at this point. Very concerning.
How else can we explain all the missteps of late? I refuse to believe that getting rid of employees with the most wisdom and experience is a good move. I refuse to believe that allowing talent to switch to our competition without trying to keep them... — read more
Yup, split likely coming soon into three parts, if not all at once: Wrike, back to a PE, Workspace, into a big slow software house like Broadcom where they can milk it for another 10 years after trimming the overhead, and the good old NetScaler, into... — read more
Couldnt get details, but major announcements coming. Anyone hear anything?
I get the impression that management is on my back 24/7. Instead of multiple managers making a teamwork dynamic, no, they 'ki-l' the whole atmosphere and suck out every atom of energy. It is because of them that morale is bad. I still haven't... — read more
Only a glutton for punishment would give his or her all for this management. You can give your 110% and be the absolute best at what you do and they'll repay you with no loyalty and get rid of you the moment they can justify it in some way. If you're... — read more
I don't understand how we can be having more cuts when we are understaffed as it is. Even without their interference, people are leaving. I wonder if they even realize how many people are actively looking and will be gone as soon as the right... — read more
Is there a way to know if these layoffs are specific to one location or if we'll be learning about more cuts over the next few days?
Inflation is all around us, prices of everything are going up. I think all wages should go up at least 10% for 2022. What do you guys thin?
Let me get this right. In a time where we are struggling as a business, leadership decide to all fly around the world to Nashville and record a load of videos for a virtual summit…. Nothing more to add.
Ever wondered how ELT lives in it's own reality bubble? Check this out - https://www.citrix.com/blogs/2022/01/04/resolutions-for-remote-and-hybrid-leaders/ "Bristling" at inconvenient emails, not showing up on internal messaging channels, believing... — read more
I want to know, where do the other 73 percent work? I think there's something wrong with these numbers because even outside of Citrix, I don't know anybody who's not worried about layoffs, no matter where they work. I'm talking retail, O&G... — read more
I can't be the only one who feels this way. I can't remember when I last had the energy to do even the most mundane things after work. I am constantly tired and all the free time I have is spent trying to rest and catch up on sleep. I used to read at... — read more
For those of you who worked at Citrix during it's heyday, watching it crumble to pieces is tough. I don't think anyone could imagine what has transpired over the past 5 or so years. Layoff after layoff, the CEO-merry-go-round, active investors... — read more
I don't have reliable information about what is happening in Europe, but there are a lot of rumors that layoffs are underway. Would that mean we can expect layoffs here soon as well?
It's strange reading this board. So many people hate their job but they choose to stay. I don't hate it. I come here because I'm worried I might lose it. I doubt that any other place will pay somebody who is over 50 as much as I'm getting here, so my... — read more
That's the main reason I left. I didn't wait for them to get rid of me, I did it my way. I pity the people who are still stuck there and I pity even more those who do business with Citrix. I don't think they realize the level of incompetence and bad... — read more
So I found this and it seems some Citrites have already posted. I am going to post just not give too much info away. The survey https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeubCMYSYpG73QAAo4xNfZG3kn4R9qajUZ6jvY3yuJijyrMTg/viewform The... — read more
Things are not going to get better, ever. The company makes sure to put on a good face for the public but behind the scenes, the employees are treated horribly. I've never worked for a company that treated its employees worse. You have two options... — read more
Many people believe that purchasing Wrike for $2.25B at the start of 2021 was the beginning of the end for C-tr-x. Thought it would be interesting to go back in time and invest that $2,25B in something (heck, anything) else. So, here is how... — read more
Slightly older news, but... Publicly traded Citrix Systems could be taken private in a deal by hedge fund Elliott Management Corp. and Vista Equity Partners, according to multiple media reports. The news comes as Citrix leadership prepares to... — read more
Why is Citrix full of bad managers who have no idea how to actually manage? If they're not outright abusive, they're passive-aggressive and try to ostracize team members behind their backs. This behavior is not only accepted, it's encouraged. No... — read more
I'm not staying at a company that can't offer me minimal job security. I understand layoffs are sometimes necessary, but having to worry about being cut 24/7 is ridiculous. I can't understand young people who keep accepting jobs here. Do they not... — read more
With the New Year nearly here, let's see if we can think of a way for Citrix to turn itself around. Is there a way to fix the mess that the management has created or is it already too late?
