    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!!

    Pros

    Great communication within your team. Great work ethics.

    Receiving files from Sr. Engineers takes a while, you have to ask multiple times.

    Pros

    Nice offices, mostly professional minded co-workers, great benefits including vacation. Not all employees get this benefit, it is per individual manager and projects, but my manager and 1 other that I knew of , allowed for flexible start times and very understanding for unscheduled days required off.

    Cons

    Work is very interesting but management can feed a lot of maintenance and support type work your way with only a few in the office getting to do the majority of the true development work. Get your money coming in... very disappointing once a year raises that don't even keep up with inflation, will have you falling behind career $ objectives even though you're doing more. No Bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Allow engineers to feel more included in the process. Surprise moves of employees or known up coming projects that could have been shared, should be shared. Make a point to build harmony in individual work groups but making the effort to have social gatherings be it lunches together or other. No one wants to be part of a group that doesn't gel.

    Pros

    VeriFone is a unique organization with a long history of innovation, designing and developing world class POS devices and systems. Although the technology is novel and purposeful, VeriFone's people are its best asset.

    Cons

    With such a wide variety of solutions and services, VeriFone's product and technology road maps can sometimes be perceived as misaligned or convoluted, causing some uncertainty for people under managers who may or may not be focused on the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Management would do well to truly embody the 360 degree review process, be fully transparent, and to bridge communications between executive management and staff. Further, newer managers should work hard to embrace long-time experienced employees and the tangible and intangible benefits retaining such employees brings to the organization.
