    Pros

    Fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Here is the truth .. you have a banker along with his dictator staff running a engineering company. They have no concept of how to run a engineering company. Their focus is on bonuses and to heck with the "little" people.

    Advice to Management

    Learn the process of working and respecting engineers. Stop hiring or promoting people who are full of themselves by punishing those who disagree with their manager style. BTW you have a lot of these types of ego self center managers. Read the book "The HP Way".

    Pros

    No good reasons anymore. The company used to be market leader. The only thing that keeps it as a player is few good individuals.

    Cons

    Wrong strategic decisions taken 2-3 years ago make dramatic impact on company's performance today. Market price is down by half in one year.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the bread n butter and Recalculate

    I worked at Verifone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Co-Workers. The commorodity was endearing. Everyone pitched in to get projects done.
    HR Department was pretty on point. Very efficient and clear cut.

    Cons

    Middle and Upper management very disorganized
    Operates in "Emergency Mode" moving from one critical issue to another.
    "Knee Jerk decision making" to resolve problems in the short terms, but will have problems long term.

    This all translates to very long hours. Guaranteed 48 to 56 hour work week.

    I worked at Verifone full-time

    Pros

    Great team of staff on the business side with presales, sales staff, implementation, technical support. Liked most of the management as they seemed to really care about what happens to the team.

    Cons

    The product team does not deliver on their promised schedule; the software developers delayed getting the products out the door to take advantage of the of the EMV opportunity. Software was sometimes buggy and needed more testing.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in product development and vision for the product; there is a great team of staff wanting to do well but the software takes a back seat to the physical product design and the software is at least half of the solution.

    Pros

    Local management is good and cares about employees. The people are very good.

    Cons

    Upper Level management's vision is not very clear. Probably also need to narrow the product portfolio and execute more effectively.
    People are working too hard and need to exercise better work life balance. This just creates a bad environment.
    Many chiefs that don't understand product development along with a lack of clear leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Need a clear vision along with products that support it. 3-5 year product road map would be good.

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation time , nice building

    Cons

    They do not pay market salary. No bonus plan except for Senior Mgmt. No stock participation or discount offered. No annual merit increases. Benefit costs are high. They do nothing for employees to make this a great place to work, unless you are senior mgmt. who seem to get all the perks It's no wonder people are leaving at a high rate. if you are interviewing here don't buy what the HR and Recruiting teams are telling you. Moral is extremely low amongst rank and file and senior mgmt seems has no clue.

    Advice to Management

    provide more salary components to your rank and file
