    Great team; exciting new management.

    I worked at Verifone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A company with great opportunity. One of the largest players in the payment space. Global company. Reasonable compensation and benefits. Interesting work.

    Cons

    Not an employee-friendly culture. High stress environment. Reactive management. Political environment that leans towards blamecasting and scapegoating. Perhaps okay for some people who like that sort of thing, but just not for me.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. Work to create a better culture that rewards the right behavior and motivates people to do the right thing. If you do, the payoff will be huge!

    Pros

    Pays well and you can work from home.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for employees. Being told as a salaried employee to not work over forty hours and making the workload so large you have to work an extra 15 hours weekly just to stay caught up. Very stressful company atmosphere. It's not the lower managements fault. It's the executive level that pushes the bar so high you just burn out from all the stress.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and look at your attrition rates!

    I worked at Verifone full-time

    Pros

    Very good company to work for. All the folks there were very nice and friendly. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a job.

    Cons

    They were rolling out half baked programs and services and there was a lot of disconnects. The reporting data was very flawed and no one seemed to be responsible for validating dating data .

    Advice to Management

    Get your products and service fine tuned before you roll it out to the clients. There was big difference between expectations and results generated.

    Pros

    If a department no longer needs your talent they will try to recycle you into a department that does. The managers are nice and try to balance work and life but some times this just can't happen and they will tell you but they will tell you why which was a big plus for me.

    Cons

    The work can be very monotonous. The culture is some what negative with internal fighting but this is something to expect from such a large company. You can't really move up without a huge work loud and small pay increase.

    Pros

    $ is fairly good and the people are nice

    Cons

    TRAINING IS HORRIBLE!!! Then they want to throw you out on your own with high expectations. This job is def for you if you have a photographic memory. They don't have documents you can go off of and the turn around rate is so high. Now I know why. Such a disappointment!. Thought it was going to be such a great place to work. Was hope this could be my career.

    Advice to Management

    Have people shadow people longer, don't just throw them on their own starting their own projects and learn by "trial and error". Also don't throw them on the phones right away because if I was a customer calling in and the person I was talking to didn't know how to handle my issue I would be quite perturbed. Send out a survey cause you are about to lose more employees and you could be making more money with better quality people rather than trying to get a lot of quantify accomplished.... Wrong!!
