I worked at VeriFone

Pros

Verifone is a large, far-flung company with a diverse and talented workforce. The people you work with will generally be competent and professional; benefits are generous, though benefits have generally declined over the past few years.

If you have a deep, narrow talent, you can expect a salary premium. If you enjoy working in a tactical environment, with short horizons, this is the place for you, especially if there is an exact fit.

Cons

Opportunities for a true career are limited to a very few now that VeriFone has perfected the are of the layoff. There is little recognition of individual achievement unless you are working on projects important to management. Don't expect long hours and loyal contributions to the bottom line to be job security insurance.

Many people working at VeriFone think management tends to have blinders on when it comes to keeping the basics running, and rely on firefighting for the worst of the problems as they crop up. To some in upper management, this appears to be considered a valid cost savings strategy.

Upper management is generally insensitive to the average employee except where it is a) a pet project of upper management or b)a cost reduction exercise.

Do not expect meaningful or timely communication about things critical to your success or survival at VeriFone, e.g., reorganizations, changes in budgets, project priorities. Do not expect org charts; org charts only emphasize the churn and transition that has defined the company in recent years. Recognize that when project and priorities shift, people are shed. Don't expect meaningful participation in strategic planning, as virtually all strategy is top-down. Accept that reviews will generally be lip-service exercises.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Unlock the natural talent in your employees by treating them with more respect and enlisting them to take this otherwise great company to new heights. Treating employees like cogs or dayjobbers is a short-term strategy, and causes them not to take the necessary risks that make a company truly successful. You're playing a defensive game when the true rewards are going to come from a full-on team effort.
