Citrix Laying Off 65 Employees


Citrix will be laying off about 65 employees in its worldwide online-services division this spring, including an undisclosed number based in the Santa Barbara area, according to spokesperson Kristin Wahl. That division, Wahl said, has 1,900 staff, with about 600 across Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura counties. Wahl called the reductions “sad news” and the result of the company’s shifting priorities to product development, engineering, and customer care. Wahl said the laid-off employees are being encouraged to apply for new jobs that will be created by the shift.
