    I have been working at Verifone part-time

    Pros

    One of the pros for working at VeriFone, is that you are always involved with new technologies that are being used everyday by 99% of the US.

    Cons

    The company is too spread out over the US. At times it is too difficult to get work accomplished when dealing with employees in all areas.

    Pros

    Positive improvements are on the horizon under the new leadership. Paul has a great vision for the company. The company is moving in the right direction. Salaries are fair with a decent benefits package. The overall work environment is positive.

    Cons

    There are a lot of talented people that work for the company; however, there is a lack of career growth and advancement opportunities. Some teams choose to work in silos vs. leveraging other people's skills to achieve a common goal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Verifone full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As the company has struggled over the past few years a major transformation started just a couple months ago. There is a much greater focus on new product development, new ways of doing things that is really bringing much of what was out-date in terms of management and process more up to date. There are still challenges, but management has taken on a listening approach that is enabling things to get done faster and more in line with what is good for the employee population. It is an exciting time to be here because there is so much to do..

    Cons

    Many changes as well as the management style for the past few years have taken their toll on morale. It is an uphill battle to get people pumped about how things are getting better and will keep getting better. Before there was a focus on profits at any cost and that really got people down. Today there is a new attitude from the top down that is much more focused on how a engaged employee population translates into greater productivity and a better, happier company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going with the new focus areas. Continue to work on better acquisition integration. Never stop listening to the rank and file employees who are the bread and butter of the organization as well as your chief evangelists. Embrace the corporate cultures of other great companies and get some of those fringe benefits in the hands of the people who work the hardest.

    Lots of internal changes, some instability, slow moving company.

    Pros

    Good people to work with, hours are pretty flexible, some people work remote which is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Lots of recent management changes which causes uncertainty, not much cross-functional training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs more cash based incentives. More perks at the office would be nice.

    Pros

    It is a solid company with a good potential for growth. Your coworkers become more like friends and family. The company always does as much as possible to ensure you have the resources you need.

    Cons

    Being a large company, it is possible to get lost. Past financial setbacks have been covered at the expense of the employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If VeriFone continues to be a leader in the payment industry through ingenuity and acquisition, our growth will continue exponentially.
