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

Pros

Great opportunity for driven individuals to shine.
Active, Industry leader. There is always a new product or project in the pipeline.
Hires and promotes from within first.
Recognition is given and performance is rewarded.
Company wide week long shutdown 2x a year = time off without work piling up.

Cons

Sink or swim approach to new hires. Works well when hiring from within but outsiders need to quick and capable to make it here. Aggressive approach to the marketplace means many positions require the employee to remain "always on". Slackers and B team players need not apply.

    Pros

    Hum .... This is a hard question, since really are no Pros!

    Cons

    employees treated bad ! Management doesn't care about the employees. No opportunities at all. High employee turnover. company is a mess. Managers lie and tell you one thing today and something different the next day. Stock is down 42%! Managers sneek around and listen in on employees talking. Not honest place to work. Employees are not trusted and managers do not tell employees anything. Back stabbing place to work. 2 week shutdown, BUT you need to use YOUR VACATION time and if you do not have vacation, you DO NOT GET PAID! From the start employees not given much vacation time. HR must be writing reviews and saying how "great" company - how can the company be great is CEO and CFO gone ? Ask yourself these questions.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all the management.

    Pros

    the only pro is that you do get a desk and chair

    Cons

    A job at any other company is better than at VeriFone. The managers and company do not care about the employees. office space is old and rundown. Managers treat employees like 5 yr old children, telling them what to do, how to do it. If you do not do it just like they tell you, they verbally attack you. It's like being in communist China, or a prison. managers sneak around to see if you are surfing the web. no perks, except day old coffee and tea. If I could give VeriFone no stars, that is what I would rate the company.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't listen, it's been like this for years
