    Pros

    The best part about working at VeriFone is the people. Individuals are nice for the most part.

    Cons

    The overall setup of the company is very old school. 40+ year old men and women that have a 1990's approach to everything... On top of that old school vision, the salary's are very low, not competitive at all. If that is not bad enough the health care and benefits are pretty poor. Last but not least, there is no light at the end of the tunnel, there no indication that this is someplace where your career will grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer competitive salaries if you expect to attract and/or keep top talent. Provide a real benefits package. You can start by adding sick hours (which are separate from PTO) into the mix. Embrace the younger employee's that are educated and are in tune with the current/future technologies. Lastly, follow the lead of the other large corporations looking to catch up, create a start-up within Verifone that can embrace and build something great with the current tech trends that will be tomorrows tech standards (Way2Ride, mobile payments etc).

    Pros

    Some growing pains as it restructures.

    Cons

    Takes a bit longer than necessary to get to know the teams; however, that depends whom your immediate supervisor is and how well he/she respect you and wishes to help you grow. This can happen anywhere though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The shut-downs were mandatory and because of that ate up vacation time to either July 4th or Christmas.

    Pros

    Company is innovative and cutting edge. It's helping to lead the way in "payment as a service" and multiple options for for payment and back office services for everything from gas stations and convenience stores to national brand larger chains. There are even available options for mobile and "mom and pop" locations.

    Cons

    Training seems to be a bit haphazard and the learning process seems to be more punitive and reactionary as opposed to thorough and proactive. The ability to work independently is touted as an important and necessary attribute, but in practice excessive micromanagement seems to be the watchword. Though busy, there seems to be no opportunity to interact with and learn from other departments and how they fit into the process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actual training guidelines would be majorly helpful for anyone just coming in and not familiar with VeriFone "culture". To be thrown to the wolves (so to speak) is not helpful to anyone trying to find their footing. Better communication between department (especially on process and process improvement) should be worked on in the near future. Communication in this culture is paramount, but there seems to be far more talking at than talking to.

    Pros

    The team I worked with was ok. A lot of acquisition made the company unmanageable.

    Cons

    Lack of budget. No managers onsite on daily basis and lack of motivation to do anything. Poor pay and not a lot of benefits. Layoffs are pretty common scene here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should look at what other companies like linkedin or glass door do to their employees. Encourage innovation and motivate good employees. Otherwise there will be nothing but junk left behind.

    Pros

    Valuable human talent in staff. Good products. Can't find anything else positive.

    Cons

    There's minimum training or leadership whatsoever. Employees are the least concern of the company. No incentives, perks or bonuses for employees. Excessive work loads and no leadership in the department. Salaries are ridiculously low for the amount of work and responsibility you are given.
    Looks like the nastiest employees get promoted more often. It's hard to find a nice and friendly boss in Clearwater.
    There's no care for the customer either. The company seems to focus only on making money no matter what...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to appreciate your staff. They are the most valuable asset in your company. The new CEO wants to make VeriFone become a leading market company like Apple: how about you learn how APPLE values and treasures its employees?
