    Nice people, Poor payment Ugly share holders

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOne of the nicest teams I ever imagined to live in, all are Europeans and middlewest Americans or East Californians.
    Some positions require a lot of travel.

    ConsEverything else.
    We work hard, and receive bad evaluation whatever we do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnite to press over the share holders together, to get some extra income, else there will be a lot of defects in the near future.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Engineer

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEasier to be visible and make the difference

    ConsPretty much everything else: mediocre pay, benefits. Petty office politics. Nepotism with mid managers. Zero chance of any advancement or career growth. Company is in financial trouble and completely lost in the new age technology.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop wasteful spending.

    Great company, excellent work life balance and managers that can see the BIG, BIG picture ahead!

    (Current Employee)
    Clearwater, FL

    ProsThis company is going through growth and changes. As most companies in today’s day and age, there must be a consistant change or adaptation while continuing to be innovative as a leader within the industry.
    VeriFone has a long standing history, with a large scale of clients within the US and Globally.

    The work hours can be long, however the management understands that employee's do have a life and families outside of work. The management team understands and works with its employees. Many of the people who work for VeriFone have been here 3-15 plus years with the company.

    ConsWith changes, come learning new processes and a learning curve. It’s always great to come into a company with new ideas, be creative and adaptable. As long as you are willing to work hard, be dedicated and show interest in the direction that you and the company are going, you will likely be a solid employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue promoting a positive culture, including flexiblity with work life balance and family values.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
