    I have been working at VeriFone full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Company is innovative and cutting edge. It's helping to lead the way in "payment as a service" and multiple options for for payment and back office services for everything from gas stations and convenience stores to national brand larger chains. There are even available options for mobile and "mom and pop" locations.

    Cons

    Training seems to be a bit haphazard and the learning process seems to be more punitive and reactionary as opposed to thorough and proactive. The ability to work independently is touted as an important and necessary attribute, but in practice excessive micromanagement seems to be the watchword. Though busy, there seems to be no opportunity to interact with and learn from other departments and how they fit into the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actual training guidelines would be majorly helpful for anyone just coming in and not familiar with VeriFone "culture". To be thrown to the wolves (so to speak) is not helpful to anyone trying to find their footing. Better communication between department (especially on process and process improvement) should be worked on in the near future. Communication in this culture is paramount, but there seems to be far more talking at than talking to.

    I worked at VeriFone full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You will learn a lot since there are not good specialization and people has to be multitask. People at all levels and in the vast majority of the countries are nice and are willing to help each other.
    Salaries are benefits are good.

    Cons

    A lot of politics within the company. To be considered for a promotion you should be part of a management group and compromise in absolute loyalty. Frequently bad practices are hidden for management and lose a lot of time trying to find out who to blame to.
    There are no planning. I oftenly worked on plans that never saw reality, without considering that in 3 years I had 5 managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers are dinosaurs.

    Pros

    Company has multiple solutions, opportunities, etc to advance skills, delivery quality products that matter. The employees are task driven with customer services at the heart of each decision made.

    Cons

    Management needs to refocus on investing in quality current employees
    The concept of outsourcing everything and do more with less is hurting ability to scale, product delivery, and quality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus on current employees

    Pros

    A lot people have worked for the company for most of their career. Internal candidates get preference

    HR not responsive. No real "on-boarding" of new employees. Too much pointing the finger at others, rather than becoming engaged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan, direct, motivate and inspire.

    Very nice co-workers and the facility is not that bad of a location. Located in a standard office park, but there is a gym on-site and a diner

    recognize non-sales employees
