    I have been working at Verifone full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company is an industry leader. Because of that, you will have plenty of opportunity to work at the cutting edge of the payments industry. It also affords a bredth of opprotunities to work on differing aspects of hardware and software. The company is very spread out among many offices, allowing for work-from-home flexibility.

    Cons

    Stockholders come first, followed by customers, followed by executives, followed by middle management. Worker bees at the botton are line items. The company is very top-heavy. The ratio of managers to individual contributors is the highest I've ever seen. Most processes and proceedures are home-grown, making day-to-day business more complex than it needs to be. Best practices are rare.

    Advice to Management

    Provide adequite staffing for projects so that things can be done right the first time. Consolidate under fewer roofs - things will get much more efficient.
