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

    Pros

    Great for follower mentality and those who prefer command execution.

    Cons

    Little room for creativity (scratch "think out-of-the-box" from resume). Flat hierarchy with overlapping matrix reporting does little to resolve confusion. Little communication among teams (teethering on need-to-know basis and as-little-divulged-as-possible) contributes to second-guessing and uncertainties. Minimal to no feedback to employees results in not knowing when you are doing something right/wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your staff and trust that they can make good judgements. Employees cannot grow with the company if their opinions are not valued.

    Pros

    1. Amazing products
    2. Point-of-sale leader worldwide
    3. Some very devoted, super-smart employees who have innovative ideas.
    4. Well-known, highly respected company in the ecommerce arena.

    Cons

    Verifone suffers from stale leadership; the same people at the top of the organization have been performing the same duties in the same way for years--and although they give a great deal of lip-service to the R&D of innovation, at the end of the day, nothing is implemented. E.g., the processes to simply hire someone are cumbersome and unnecessarily lengthy in that EVERYONE, right up to Doug and Bob, have demanded approval ownership of both the job order/posting/rec and the hire. This results in massive delays and the loss of amazing talent. Leadership knows this too and they don't care. I am told that a lot of this is typical of UK-owned orgs., regardless, it's creates a rather inert, stale work environment where communication is choppy and unreliable. The employees I worked with were both frustrated and unhappy with the antiquated processes and I can say via firsthand experience that employees at nearly all levels spend at least 10% of their day playing CYA and trying to stay below C-level radar. This is one of the most hostile environments I have ever worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people--you don't need to sign off on every hire made. Allow your employees to inspire and reward them for doing so. There are some real cancers on the payroll, especially in the Clearwater, FL location, who are dragging everyone down by being so negative--get rid of them. Encourage autonomy, relax the reigns and let go.
