As a long-time Citrite, any further "major" layoffs will be the end of this company. There are too many areas already stretched thin where people are doing the job/function of 3 people. Product quality in the toilet bc not enough engineers to properly maintain products. Tech Support in the tank with not enough engineers and little experience. The company buys the additional companies for small pieces they give away for free, and retain almost no employees from these acquisitions, meaning nobody knows anything about said products.

Too many middle managers who are yes men, and too much managing to spreadsheet KPIs without a real clue of how things should work. Only long-term chance for this company is to be bought and going private. I've watched this company get run into the ground all for the sake of shareholder profits after Elliot Management got their teeth in them. There is no fat (except in management) left here. More cuts to those who have suffered through bad executive and management decisions will be the end of Citrix.

Looks like HR is back and trolling the posts to paint a rosy picture of a failing company.

We must work in a different company cause i don't know anybody who has been laid off in the last few months in the America or EMEA regions, many people i know have left but this is a different story...

There have been people leaving the company the last 2-3 months, EMEA is hit and it will continue.

I honestly think the company does everything it can to keep it under the radar.

I keep hearing of people that has left every day.

Compare to previous times no announcements are made - which is very odd. Don't know if that is part of some " let go package" - leave without noise.

Lot's of what I would consider legacy people there going back to the presentation server days; heck even Metaframe! Need new blood in the company in order for them to continue to stay float.......

I would agree that the company has too many Director/Sr Director even some VP levels that are there because of who they know within the company...

As a stock holder, I think change is a must. My $0.02...

I am no longer at Citrix and have received multiple resumes from Director levels across many locations. My guess could be that the rumors circulating could be true and may impact some of those middle level managers. For those of you that are currently employed there, please make sure that your resume's are fresh and ready. Good luck.....
