    Inexperienced Leaders and Managers. Very political. Lacking a clear plan for the future.

    Pros

    Some good, hardworking, loyal individuals. Customer focused.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits poor. Lack of investment in technology, tools and people for years. High staff turnover. Negative culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on change management and individual performance. Favouritism and poor cost control is not prudent nor a recipe for success for a listed company of this size in fast growing markets like APAC.

    I have been working at Verifone full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very challenging work place requiring creative ways around problems. Interesting collaboration with global teams. People who are working on projects really have an impact to the product.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits package is not competitive. Office needs investment as employees are being shoved into conference rooms for cubes. VPs want things done with no investment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executing the new vision is the key. Invest in your people and workplace.

    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

    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

    if you like changes and a vibrant organization, you would have to look for job at this company. There is always something going on, including seeing new colleagues every week. There is a lot of liberty doing your job as long as it looks good.

    Cons

    There are quite a few idiots here in positions which they can't handle. There are too many consultants at thick salaries who are arrogant and not willing to listen to employees who now how to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Swap the consultants to permanent employees who are more committed to the company. Make sure everyone is heard and don't favor a few of the team members.

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

    Pros

    Everyone is being nice and helpful to each other, though there may be time when we argue over some issues for the on-going project.
    Flexible working hours.
    Interesting and challenging field issues reported from time to time and required to be resolved within short timeline.
    Self-funding and organised team building strengthens the bonding within the R&D group.

    Cons

    May need to work overtime sometimes.
    Forced to take time-off twice a year.
    Company's re-structuring is causing uncertainty to job security.
    Lack of career growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the trend with the Technology and find out what Customers want.
    Don't compare us with Apple. Our product lines are totally different and we will never sell as much as they do. Furthermore, our products need to be able to work for much longer (>5 years), while smartphones/tablets get replaced almost every 1~2 years.
    Size does matter but product security, quality and reliability are more important to us. We cannot squeeze everything into a small form factor like Apple's products and expect to achieve full test coverage, meeting Security compliance standard, etc.
    Define product roadmap ahead to help in R&D planning.
