    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.

    The strong will thrive and the weak will perish. Changed my life for better.

    Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat opportunity for driven individuals to shine.
    Active, Industry leader. There is always a new product or project in the pipeline.
    Hires and promotes from within first.
    Recognition is given and performance is rewarded.
    Company wide week long shutdown 2x a year = time off without work piling up.

    ConsSink or swim approach to new hires. Works well when hiring from within but outsiders need to quick and capable to make it here. Aggressive approach to the marketplace means many positions require the employee to remain "always on". Slackers and B team players need not apply.

    New Leadership, Positive Outlook

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPositive 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.

    ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementEmpower employees and encourage professional development

    Company is in transformation mode, very positive direction

    (Current Employee) San Jose, CA

    ProsAs 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..

    ConsMany 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 Senior ManagementKeep 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.
