VeriFone is a unique organization with a long history of innovation, designing and developing world class POS devices and systems. Although the technology is novel and purposeful, VeriFone's people are its best asset.
With such a wide variety of solutions and services, VeriFone's product and technology road maps can sometimes be perceived as misaligned or convoluted, causing some uncertainty for people under managers who may or may not be focused on the big picture.
Advice to Management
Management would do well to truly embody the 360 degree review process, be fully transparent, and to bridge communications between executive management and staff. Further, newer managers should work hard to embrace long-time experienced employees and the tangible and intangible benefits retaining such employees brings to the organization.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Verifone (New York, NY) in March 2015.
I applied online to a finance job at Verifone. It was a very Mickey Mouse operation from the start. They told me to set aside 45 minutes for a phone screening, which I did. The call lasted 10 minutes, I basically gave my 90 second elevator speech, then some administrative stuff such as when I was available to work, salary expectations, etc. I was then invited in to a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager, which went relatively ok. The interview was again more going through my specific experience, no real technical questions, pretty easy. Following that I had one more 30 minute interview with someone in a remote location as a sense-check.
Inevitably, I got an offer which was essentially at the same total pay, salary + bonus, as my previous job. That plus less vacation days, also they force you to take almost half your vacation days during designated "lock-out" periods during 4th of July weekend and Christmas-New Year's week. Basically no improvement. I tried to negotiate the salary, and was accused of not being interested in the job, instead of, say, offering a performance review after 6 months. All in all, HR was very amateurish and unprofessional and just another of many red flags. I turned down the offer and have no regrets whatsoever. As one friend said, it seemed like a "toxic" situation.
