I understand that no company will go public by first announcing how bad the situation is in the company, but I think Citrix is at the forefront of lack of transparency. Isn’t that so? In the media, everything is smoke and mirrors. Also, if I had had more detailed information about this company, which at the time I had not, I would most likely never have tried to get a job here.

It hasn't always been like that, but a lot of good people have left the company (either through settlement or actively leaving) and it is clear they are changing the DNA of the company. The current execs don't seem to give a f**k, why hardworking, loyal, competent and committed people are leaving.
I can't recommend anyone, unless you are desperate, to take a job at Citrix (at the current situation). I know at least 10 people that resigned the last few weeks.. and many more actively seeking their way out, I am sure that wherever they land they will recognized as valuable.
It is my honest opinion that if the current exec's (ex SAP people) stays, they company will be in a really bad stage in less than 18months. Due to the fact there is no strategy anymore. They just continue to push the administrative burden down the throat, without improving any backend processes and more time is spend in fulfilling meaningless KPIs than actually meeting customers. Also, all these ex SAP people have a mindset that is so infected by their former employer meaning that they believe there is no competition out there.
The transparency is very bad. They are all smoke and mirrors at Citrix Summit but in reality it is very bad. I have never worked at a company where everyone literally hates going to work everyday.
Absolutely true, sh–rix plays dirty and every decision is done behind closed doors with no consideration for the employees. The only thing execs care about is their pay and bonuses.
