    I worked at Verifone full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High tech jobs in an area that doesn't have many. Excellent compensation for upper management. Not so much for the grunts.

    Cons

    Former 18 year employee.
    The product design "teams" (of which I was a part) are spread throughout the world and project communication of task allotment, schedules and priorities are not adequate. Non-existent actually. Schedules were set with zero input from the people doing the work. I was very glad when I was laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring Senior Vice Presidents and start focusing on your engineering processes, which need major improvements that could be easily be accomplished, unlikely as that may seem.
    All you needed to do was ask those that have subsequently left.

    Pros

    Company has a commanding market share in payments. CEO is brilliant and an excellent leader. Paul Galant has taken on a very difficult task of turning around a company that had been mismanaged for years before he arrived. If you want to be inspired and driven, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Legacy Verifone was a hot bed of mediocrity. Still a long way to go before it is transformed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the long term, do not be so hard on yourselves. You will succeed.

    I worked at Verifone full-time

    Pros

    Co-workers are a great group of people, supportive, and hardworking.

    Cons

    In my division there wasn't enough to staff to do all the work. Executive management expected staff to work at least 10 hour days and to work on weekends on short notice.

    Advice to Management

    Use the company profits to hire more people so that the workload is more evenly distributed across the staff. Work/Life balance matters.
