Citrix Systems Honored as One of the Top 50 Best Places to Work in 2012
When it comes to great employers, the employees know best. Glassdoor, a jobs and career community where people share workplace insights, has announced its fourth annual Employees’ Choice Awards, revealing this year’s top 50 Best Places to Work,” based on surveys collected from U.S.-based employees in 2011. Citrix Systems has been recognized as one of the top 50 Best Places to Work, a significant achievement, as nearly 150,000 companies are rated by their employees on Glassdoor.
“Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards recognize stand-out companies that have retained the support and commitment of their employees despite the tough economic climate,” said Robert Hohman, co-founder and CEO of Glassdoor. “Through anonymous employee reviews and surveys, Glassdoor offers a unique look into the top U.S. employers and some of the factors that make employees at these companies more satisfied with their jobs. For companies on the list, we typically get positive feedback on the company culture, benefits and open communication practices while we also tend to see competitive pay packages and high opinions of the chief executive.”
Glassdoor’s Employees’ Choice Awards rely solely on the input of employees, who provide constructive feedback on their work environment and senior management throughout the year via an anonymous survey. The survey addresses eight key workplace factors that include work/life balance, career opportunities, communication, compensation and benefits, fairness and respect, employee morale, recognition and feedback, and senior leadership. The ranking of the top 50 list was determined by each company’s overall Glassdoor rating, which is the cumulative average rating from employees who elected to participate in a 20-question survey between December 1, 2010 and November 23, 2011.
“It is wonderful to see employees feeling so good about the environment we strive to create — a better way to work and live,” said Mark Templeton, president and CEO, Citrix Systems. “I am proud of our employees for their belief in our vision and commitment to excellence, both of which significantly contribute to making Citrix a great place to work.”
