    I worked at Verifone full-time

    Pros

    The benefits were good and at least in the department that I worked in there was some flexibility to work from home occasionally. The position that I had could have been done 100% from home.

    Cons

    Teams did not work well together and there was very little room for growth or movement into other teams. Lots of employee turnover. There was no opportunity for training. Pay scale was very skewed.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive to keep good employees, otherwise it's a missed opportunity. Offer training opportunities and room for advancement.

    Pros

    Talented co-workers, strong technical R&D team, interesting projects

    Cons

    Incompetent top management:
    The upper management is a group of jokers. They are all either staying here waiting for retirement or someone who is hopping between organizations trying to squeeze the money out from the Company. Sometimes I wonder if there are more Directors, Presidents, VPs than the actual employee that are doing the real works. Talk is cheap so they always like to talk big but yet cannot deliver. Some of these Directors are just here for their fat bonus and never really try to help the Company business. VeriFone keeps shutting down offices, R&D centers from one country to another country despite the truth of losing out a lot of expertise. And they don't really care about this at all. So do not expect there is a future for this Company. It is just a matter of time when it will be acquired by the competitor who is doing much better than VeriFone.

    Advice to Management

    Get some real guys to save the Company, not someone who just joins for the fat bonus and work for a few years before they hop to another organization! Fired those useless directors who only know how to talk to save costs instead of shutting down R&D center.

    I have been working at Verifone full-time

    Pros

    Lots of autonomy, ability for uncapped earnings. Pretty good management and great coworkers. If you're a sales professional you'll have opportunities to earn.

    Cons

    Lots of competition industry wide. Company seems to be stuck and headed nowhere fast. Not a darling of the street. Would expect a merger or shakeup in management sooner rather than later.

    Look into areas where staff can benefit for self development and career progression

    Pros

    Fintech is one of the fastest evolving sectors in India. Verifone is at the forefront of this. It is lead by a very energetic and hands on management that gives opportunities to people who like to take up responsibility.

    Cons

    Since payments is a sector where inertia to adopt new products is high, the same effect trickles down into the organizations. New financial products and services take time to be accepted, hence one needs to be patient and motivated to see the change happen.

    Pros

    It is an excellent company with a vision to work for. The growth opportunities are good. Only thing is we have to stay updated with the latest technologies in this to survive

    Cons

    Upper Management changes are a bit frequent. There is no bench in the company. So we have to be careful.
