What is wrong with you? Are you a sociopath? Don't tell me you're a businessman interested in profit. Do your kids know what a piece of cr-p you are? Maybe we should explain it to them so that they know you're everything they actually hate about the... — read more
Being under constant stress has unfathomable health consequences for many of us in this company. I am overwhelmed, I have almost no work-life balance, and when I think about it, is it all worth it? - Definitely not.
To all the people that got severance packages, review them carefully… mine had missing weeks and ive heared from other people that their packages were missing weeks and other compensation.. some of them at 40% of the total package… take a close look — read more
It's been accurately compared to the Hunger Games. Employees are forced into a distribution of top, average and low performers and even if you are working hard and exceeding expectations for your role, if your coworkers are working harder, YOU WILL... — read more
I have an approved remote work medical accommodation. I’ve also busted my rear at my job. Listen to me, Fat Boy - if I don’t get my promotion because of my medical accommodation, I will sue the company SO BAD my lawsuit will be studied in law... — read more
At the GEM. Likened it to kids skipping school, or some guy who ran a business, moved to Hawaii, and let the business fail. Other non-sensical things as well. Threatened to fire anyone the wasn't coming back to office. Was pacing back and forth a lot... — read more

When you see the blogs this company is throwing on the net. Just trying and trying to keep themselves and their legacy technology relevant, it's just pathetic. Never seen the abuse of community loverboys by a company marketing so clear... — read more
Does anyone know how these will be paid out?
Wake up, people. He’s bullying you, taking away benefits, most of your bonus and threatening you with losing your job if you don’t come to the office. He’d think twice if he had to battle with a union. I have coworkers who have expressed interest... — read more
Stack ranking is the law of the land & work-life balance is officially out the window, per TK's statements around employee comp at today's all-hands. To wit, "if you don't want to take that call after 6pm or you don't want to [regularly work thru the... — read more
"U-uh. I don't want to spend a lot of time on that." I bet you don't
Perhaps someone thinks it's a better option to stay here and wait for severance pay, but I'm really fed up with this place and I can't wait to leave. What I notice is that Citrix on the resume does not seem to help in the least in getting a new... — read more
The other big policy change is that managers are allowing high-performers, those considered to be skilled talent at risk of leaving CSG, to "unofficially" be allowed to continue to work from home indefinitely. Meanwhile, all other CSG employees... — read more
After the latest layoff, this place expects way too much from me for how much I'm paid. It looks like somebody at the top honestly thought that cutting half a team would not be noticed because the rest of us would be able to pick up all the extra... — read more
I just was told via AskHR my severance is being paid out over 8 months following the usually bimonthly pay cycle. My 32 weeks of severance will take them 8 months to pay. Maybe its a cost saving mechanism, but holy he-l keeping all the laid off... — read more
I hear the leader charmed everyone into RTO during his last all-hands in BLR.
I was in the layoff. Has anyone had any luck with AskHR? I had a problem with my documentation and I've been trying since last week to get a response.
I’m not coming in to the office as is most of my team. The couple of times I went in, there was hardly anyone around. RTO, like every other TK initiative is a big fat joke.
Ok, TK, you want to play this game? I’m staying. You’re not running me out of here. And, I’m doing the bare minimum possible and will take FMLA leave (can’t take THAT away, porkie!) or just riding it out until I get my severance. Bottom line: IF YOU... — read more
I survived and now waiting for six months hoping my number will be called next time. I’m just not happy here anymore, maybe I’ll take up a hobby to keep me busy.
I find it funny how many posters feel the need to convince others that they have to leave Citrix, "now, damn it!" Why would I want to leave? My life has improved significantly since I realized that no matter what I do my chances of being laid off are... — read more
Citrix is dead. It started to die in 2009 when Mark Templeton just decided to lay off 10% of employees before the Great Recession hit in an attempt to recoup some stock value. Citrix could have resurrected itself in 2012 when XenApp and XenDesktop... — read more
Ask yourself this: Have company leaders communicated anything that leads you believe they are planning for LONG-TERM success and growth? Anything at all? Sure there are a lot of companies laying off right now, but those companies still have... — read more
Sometimes I think that, regardless of everything, we employees care more about the future of this company than our leadership does. In fact, I can't even call them leaders, because there is a lot more to being a leader than just cutting expenses... — read more
I'm about to start applying and I'm not sure how to deal with the issue of being laid off once I reach the interview stage. Is it detrimental to my chances if they find out I was laid off from my last job? If it is, is there a way to avoid disclosing... — read more
Get out now before you’re booted out. Literally ANY other company will treat you more respectfully. FK “CSG” (STOOOOPID name, also!)
Especially if you are a leftover
On social media several videos of CF and SM are passing by. And I wonder do customer still believe the cr-p those guys are telling and selling.?Especially SM who messed up several product lines its unbelievable he is still there and running a BU. CF... — read more
I don't have any false hope that something will change for the better here, nor do I feel emotionally attached to the company or undecided about leaving, but I simply still can't get a new job. That's the only reason I'm still here, I'm simply... — read more
There are companies who still value and respect their employees. CSG and the current CEO DO NOT give a rip about you as evidenced by their treatment of your coworkers this week. Maybe you’re next? Right now we are all sitting ducks for whatever the... — read more
Look at the 9th document in the package. Page 1 definition of "Base Pay" and then table on Page 4. Make sure they have the numbers calculated properly. Hearing about lots of people with issues.
The atmosphere is very tense, but I don't think that attrition will increase significantly in the coming months, although frustration with the company and working conditions probably will. I stopped wondering what will change for the better, I only... — read more
Maybe I would decide to stay here for a while longer if I thought the leadership had some concrete plan to improve the situation in this company. Perhaps someone here thinks that such a plan exists? However, I am almost certain that they do not... — read more
It used to be normal that after a major round of layoffs, we'd know it was done and we could focus on our work without worrying about our jobs for a year or at least six months in worst-case scenarios. Now, a day after layoffs are done, most of us... — read more
