    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

    This company believes in what the people can contribute. We believe in value and quality instead of quantity.

    Cons

    We could be more centralized in many aspects, which I believe we could be moving more towards.

    Advice to Management

    If we are to compete with the top tier technology companies in the world, the employees should be invested in as much as other high end tech companies do.

    Pros

    Some growing pains as it restructures.

    Cons

    Takes a bit longer than necessary to get to know the teams; however, that depends whom your immediate supervisor is and how well he/she respect you and wishes to help you grow. This can happen anywhere though.

    Advice to Management

    The shut-downs were mandatory and because of that ate up vacation time to either July 4th or Christmas.

    I have been working at Verifone full-time (More than 3 years)

    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent directors and staff is very respectful. A company that makes you feel part of it and in a family atmosphere but at the same time very professional. Something that motivates in this company is that they have diverse work from home positions. So you have the opportunity to work but at the same time spend time with your family.

    Cons

    Why speak negative when the company has more positive to point?

    Internal Job postings tend to get unnoticed. Follow-up, patience and persistence is needed.

    Keep moving in recognizing the folks who has the staying power to move towards the Corporate objectives.
