Citrix Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq:CTXS), the global leader in application delivery infrastructure, today announced it was named one of the top 10 places to work in the annual ranking of "100 Best Places to Work in the Bay Area”
by the San Francisco Business Times, Silicon Valley/San Jose Business Journal and East Bay Business Times. Citrix ranked ninth among companies with 101 to 500 employees in the Bay Area. The publications surveyed over 200,000 employees from more than 500 nominated companies, measuring their satisfaction on a wide array of topics including work culture, management and benefits. Winning companies were announced at an awards ceremony on Tuesday night, April 29, in San Francisco and a full list of winners was published by all three sponsoring publications on Friday, May 2.
Since earning a Top 20 spot in last year’s awards, Citrix has continued to build momentum in the Bay Area, opening up a new Silicon Valley headquarters in Santa Clara and growing its Bay Area presence to nearly 500 employees. This location now serves as a strategic second headquarters for the company, with aggressive growth plans for 2008 as Citrix continues to build its virtualization and networking solutions into an end-to-end infrastructure for application delivery.
“Silicon Valley is a geography that holds some of the world’s most impressive engineering talent. We’ve continued to attract the best the Bay Area has to offer by bringing the innovative spirit of a startup and melding it with the stability of an established billion-dollar market leader,” said Wes Wasson, chief marketing officer for Citrix. “To be recognized as one of the top 10 companies to work for in a region of so many esteemed companies is a tremendous honor, especially since our ranking is based directly on our employees’ feedback about being a part of the Citrix family.”
