VMWare is a company.  

Does it work like citrix:  yes and no.  VMWare and citrix both have server and desktop virtualization products but citrix and vmware also have other products that do different things.  

Which one is better?  Depends on what you want to do.

If I asked the following question - What is Toyota?  Does it work like BMW? Which is better? Too generic of a qustion.

are you trying to decide between the two?  if so what applications?  just servers, desktops, or both?  is cost a factor?

If you would like to learn serve virtualiztion I would recommend vmware. On the other hand if you wanted application virtualization I would look at Citrix.  I've been seeing a lot of server virtualization and storage demend recently so it may be a good bet
Both are used in virtualization industry and it depends on your business needs as well as your cost planning(Expense)
