    I have been working at Verifone full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Easier to be visible and make the difference

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else: mediocre pay, benefits. Petty office politics. Nepotism with mid managers. Zero chance of any advancement or career growth. Company is in financial trouble and completely lost in the new age technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop wasteful spending.

    I have been working at Verifone as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    This 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.

    Cons

    With 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue promoting a positive culture, including flexiblity with work life balance and family values.

    - HR is a revolving door

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Take care of your employees
    - Pay your employees fairly based on what they actually do and the market, not based on job profile
    - Dont cut benefits to finance the latest acquisition
    - Finish R&D on a product before launching as production
    - Hire the employees you need to accomplish the job you want done
