Thread regarding Citrix Systems Inc. layoffs

How would you all describe management at Citrix

So I was given an offer at Citrix but am hesitant to accept as the manager was frankly a mo–n and I don’t want to get into a clown circus like my last job.
So how would you all describe the quality of management at Citrix.
I need some input to make the decision as Citrix management seems immature.

I like to stretch it as far as to say..

"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."..

Most good mid managers have been moved away for the "yes man", committed people pushed out the door as they feel they are not taken seriously.

I don't think most people understand what management is trying to acheive, for sure there are good and bad managers, however not everyone sees what they are working with. In my experience there are lots of old fasioned managers that citrix is trying to remove, just look at the top tier and how that has changed to be SAP version 2.

If you need a job take it. Otherwise go elsewhere because you will be in the "golden handcuff" situation. Citrix pays above market and if you work here you - depending on your location - will find yourself not able to easily find another job that pays the same or more.

Two types of managers excel at Citrix, the arseholes and the arse-lickers. Admittedly, one has some nice people as one does in any organisation, but the Citrix culture is toxic. The company is also sinking and South Florida has few great jobs, so those remaining are in siege mode fighting constantly against their peers and direct reports.

Is this site about real layoffs or b–ching about your job and Citrix in general ?

Depends on the manager and roll specific. There are some super cool people managers there, and then you have 80% of managers that are micromanagers. Being a legacy organization and a former employee, most are reluctant to allow another individuals to take over projects or provide any valuable insights to make things better. The company still has decent people there and some that want to grow, but it’s the middle line managers that do not want you to get promoted. If it’s a job you need, then take it, but if you have options, definitely take the extra few minutes to review those opportunities.

BTW, I am receiving calls from current employees looking for jobs.... Just saying......

Let me give you an advice in life.

When you apply for any job - make sure that the person you are going to report into is the person you would like to work for (company comes second) i.e. chose your manager. I would never work for someone I believe is not comfortable in his own role or acts funny.

A company can't be better than the workforce attitude their managers carry.

Well, an opportunity remain an opportunity. As far as you described it “Citrix management is immature”. Moreover there is a lack of people skills among a lot of them. It can be a challenge for you to learn how not to behave, but the way Citrix has becoming a red tape type of management : good luck. The decision is yours
