What's happening, people? Why are so many leaving?
I see a lot of people who are getting new jobs ready to walk away without notice or even worse, by telling off their managers. I implore you, don't do this. You never know what's going to happen in the future and if you'll find yourself in a... — read more
Will it happen before the end of the year or are we safe for the next few months?
This is a legitimate question for you citrites.
Literally! After giving notice I realized that this is the company that exhausted me the most, and I stayed here the shortest of all my previous jobs! Citrix generally no longer has any creative or innovative energy. This company will just continue... — read more
The message from the top is, “No big deal — we made a few minor mistakes, mostly to the Street, and with some small adjustments we’ll be fine.” This is actually the load of garbage they’re handing out to the rank and file. Soon they’ll be handing out... — read more
I've been on site since the start of the pandemic, I can see that we are prepping for a massive 200+ people separation. Mainly sales. Beware.
They spoke about focus and gave no idea how they are going to do that... Always nice words and no follow through.
The CTXS stock is dropping faster than a rock with DH leaving abruptly. Is this going to be the moment of reckoning for Elliott to lose all the gains they made earlier ? Maybe their karma is coming back to bite them with them taking this company... — read more
Elliot is bringing back the good old days of fear and madness to Sh—trix Ahh the happy times are back…
I don't like layoffs rumors, as all it does it make people afraid of losing their jobs and causes productivity to go down.. In my 10+ years at Citrix, I have heard many rumors, have seen shady deals, and also seen the way layoffs start in... — read more
For those that came to this forum to say stop with the rumors looks like you were the ones wrong. DH out proves Citrix is collapsing. Layoffs are for sure next! No one should stay at Citrix.
Well, DH sent an email that he is out now. Guess Elliot pushed him out. I got a feeling something big is coming and its not going to be good for us.
DH is out, ~30 more to go. I hope the entire incompetent leaders are shown the door in next 1 month. Thats the only way to save the company.
Many managers keep the hard workers anonymous while they take credit for their work in their 1 to 1s. Management is substandard, leadership is substandard, both from people mgmt point of view and technology point of view - impossible to learn... — read more
Lately, I’ve also started hearing some rumors again about layoffs that I hope won’t come true. Citrix is not a company where cuts are as common as in some other companies, but still, one should always be prepared because no one’s job is ever safe... — read more
Just got hold of the CEO change formula. Sharing it here as it is a trusted community, please keep it a secret : XX+YY+ZZ where XX is the 10s of millions paid to outgoing CEO YY is 10s of millions paid to interim CEO ZZ is 10s... — read more
Citrix is in a ho-e it may not get out of. It has a set of products that didn’t keep pace and continue to lose relevance. The pace of industry change over the last ~5 yrs. caught leadership off-guard, coupled with a very different Microsoft no longer... — read more
I envy those who are able to leave. I'm stuck here for personal reasons and watching this place sink further and further every day has not been a good experience. But it is what it is. It helps to know I'm not in this alone and others are also... — read more
I see so many posts from unhappy people who seem miserable working here, but for some reason, they make a choice to stay day in, day out. Why? Nobody is forcing you to stay here. Do yourself a favor and walk away. The job market has never been... — read more

People are usually worried when someone intends to buy the company they work for. Citrix is the only company where even some of my colleagues think it would be better for the company to be bought. This means that people here do not see the... — read more
What happened here? This was a decent place to work and now it has the most toxic culture I've experienced in my career, and I've worked at more than a few companies in my nearly three decades of work experience. I hope things will start to improve... — read more
I've been on the fence about leaving for a few months and this week I finally made my decision: it's time to leave. I won't badmouth the company. Yes, things have changed but I've spent too many good years here to not appreciate what I once had. No... — read more
The current state of Citrix can become a leadership lesson - "How to ruin a great company and fast?". We are such a disaster now that unless there is a good level of cleanup at leadership level, I don't see anything else but a continued downward... — read more
Citrix is making it mandatory to be vaccinated unless you have “medical” or “religious” reasons not to BUT despite those variables, they will still require employees to be vaccinated if you go to a Citrix office, attend meetings, events, or travel -... — read more
Please do not turn this thread into a discussion about the effectiveness of the vaccine, let it be discussed by experts in the field. What interests me is would you leave Citrix in case the company did not mandate vaccination? It seems to me... — read more
I hear some rumors about layoffs again. I hope it's just a malicious fabrication. Any insights?
Hearing that Elliot is back and demanding increasing valuation and stakeholders returns, again. Is it true or rather a gimmick to improve the stock price that has taken a beating over the last few quarters? If Elliot news is true, it brings back... — read more
Elliot wields a sharp ax! Look out, they will want to get that employee count back down to 7500 like they did in 2017.

Judging by this board and the people I know, all they need is to ask for volunteers. Plenty will be happy to jump at the opportunity to get paid to walk away from this place. That way everybody would be happy - those who want to leave and those who... — read more
Those who know know. Get ready for the hit.
The results are out. Market never lies. Congratulations leadership, on the amazing achievement and ruining a great company. The conservative and lower than last years’ target is also missed. WTF!!! For heavens sake, don’t bankrupt the company and... — read more
I have been here for several years, I have worked in other companies as well. I'm used to working under pressure and I've never had a problem working hard. It was only here that I recently experienced a total burnout. I'm sure I will overcome that... — read more
At this point I don’t know if it would be worse to get laid off or survive this big layoff too? The luckiest are those who have left, that for sure. I hope that I will be able to leave before they start cutting because being a survivor here means... — read more
Fellow co-workers, start applying outside if you have not already. There is a high probability of massive layoffs in the next 6 months. Only if the board decides to remove DavidH, it may give a bit of time but that will not happen right away. I see... — read more
On this morning's call, David mentioned a couple of time about a forecasting issue. He didn't say that it was directly related to this but he seemed to indicate that he was displeased about how the forecast was missed. When was the last time Finance... — read more
