Citrix Systems Inc.

Overview

Citrix Systems Inc. was one of the first sellers of software systems that let corporate employees remotely access computer data and application programs. The Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based company more recently has moved toward hosting its customers' data and software on Intenet-linked servers, a trend known as cloud computing.

Citrix, through its 2007 acquisition of XenSource, is also a seller of virtualization software, which allows companies to add more computer server and storage capacity to their networks without having to buy new machines. It faces intense competition in that market from storage giant EMC Corp., which bought VMWare in 2004. Several reports in 2009 identified Citrix as a possible acquisition target, but it has so far remained independent.

The company’s products, which include XenDesktop, XenApp, GoToMeeting, GoToMyPC, CitrixXenServer and Citrix Essentials, are used by more than 230,000 organizations worldwide. Citrix has offices throughout the U.S. and in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Culture

"Citrites," as the company's employees are known, can expect a casual work and dress environment. The company’s motto is “Work Hard, Play Hard, Get Results and Have Fun Doing It.” Perks include stock options, an employee stock-purchase plan and flexible hours.

Citrix emphasizes corporate citizenship. It has several community outreach programs focused on education, economic development and technology advancement.

Citrix has more than a dozen corporate blogs. Topics range from company and product news to technology white papers. It has many Twitter accounts on a variety of products and strategies. You can also follow it on Facebook.

Recruiting


Citrix uses an in-house recruiting team. Expect to answer technical questions in depth. The company has a group on Linkedin dedicated to careers. It actively recruits on college campuses and offers internships.
