Has it ever been worse? It is impossible to expect better morale when things are getting worse and worse here every day. The rumors about additional cuts do not surprise me at all and it is quite certain that they will come true, because the management is completely incompetent. I have no will to work at all. I only work the bare minimum.

It’s all because of incompetent management , especially the f-t VP layer that does nothing productive but is really skilled at kissing their bosses as–s.
Seriously, all investors watch your back.
Please ask Citrix, how many high performers they have left.
It is all about bottom line and a lot of the best have already left or agreed on a settlement.
All the Company cares about is revenue /bottom line and they do not care for 5 second how to achieve it.
The company is about to become an empty shell, with low paid low performers.
Many people have left iin the last few months. Most of them high performer's.
But as you say, company wants to optimize cost. They target those who have been around for a while, and hope to replace them with junior people. Mid management just executes, most good Mlmanagers I know already left 2-3 years ago.
It is all about the bottom line /decrease cost not about growth or development. It reminds me of VMWare.
Morale has been awful. I am starting a new job in the next few weeks. 2 of my friends also found new roles. We've been optimizing for costs rather than growth. You could tell my whole management chain is burnt out too. There's almost no actual FUN left anymore - it's all left the company. Everything is so serious - just listen to how monotone DH is in the GEMs. BORING! The rest of the ELT might be even worse.
The morale has always been bad. Citrix keeps buying companies that won’t grow their core business. Share file, xenmobile, and Wrike will be included in the suite. They dont do acquisitions that grow the virtual desktop or networking business. They keep making bad choices...
