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

    Pros

    Depending on the department, managers can be really supportive and really great to work for. A lot of freedom to make your own hours and work from home as necessary.

    Cons

    The benefits aren't great, not a lot of FTO (most used for office shut downs) and no bonuses for normal workers, only management.

    Advice to Management

    They should think about improving the benefits and the way that workers are treated and there will be higher retention. Recently asked employees for feedback - act and make changes based on that feedback.

    Pros

    So much opportunity to make your mark and create the environment you want to work in. So much transformation going on that those with good ideas are likely able to implement them. Appreciate that we're not overly governed by rules, we do what makes sense. Leadership team appreciates proposals for new approaches and initiative to create positive change.

    Cons

    Not the place for those afraid of change or old-school ways of working.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent All Hands - we're so geographically dispersed we have a strong appetite for everyone coming together to share updates.

    Pros

    Very good company to work for. All the folks there were very nice and friendly. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a job.

    Cons

    They were rolling out half baked programs and services and there was a lot of disconnects. The reporting data was very flawed and no one seemed to be responsible for validating dating data .

    Advice to Management

    Get your products and service fine tuned before you roll it out to the clients. There was big difference between expectations and results generated.

    Pros

    VeriFone is a unique organization with a long history of innovation, designing and developing world class POS devices and systems. Although the technology is novel and purposeful, VeriFone's people are its best asset.

    Cons

    With such a wide variety of solutions and services, VeriFone's product and technology road maps can sometimes be perceived as misaligned or convoluted, causing some uncertainty for people under managers who may or may not be focused on the big picture.

    Advice to Management

    Management would do well to truly embody the 360 degree review process, be fully transparent, and to bridge communications between executive management and staff. Further, newer managers should work hard to embrace long-time experienced employees and the tangible and intangible benefits retaining such employees brings to the organization.

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

    Pros

    As the company has struggled over the past few years a major transformation started just a couple months ago. There is a much greater focus on new product development, new ways of doing things that is really bringing much of what was out-date in terms of management and process more up to date. There are still challenges, but management has taken on a listening approach that is enabling things to get done faster and more in line with what is good for the employee population. It is an exciting time to be here because there is so much to do..

    Cons

    Many changes as well as the management style for the past few years have taken their toll on morale. It is an uphill battle to get people pumped about how things are getting better and will keep getting better. Before there was a focus on profits at any cost and that really got people down. Today there is a new attitude from the top down that is much more focused on how a engaged employee population translates into greater productivity and a better, happier company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the new focus areas. Continue to work on better acquisition integration. Never stop listening to the rank and file employees who are the bread and butter of the organization as well as your chief evangelists. Embrace the corporate cultures of other great companies and get some of those fringe benefits in the hands of the people who work the hardest.
