    I have been working at Verifone full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great team members and industry with growth potential

    Cons

    So many cons, it's hard to keep track but here are just the few:
    -it's a tribal culture here, you will get promotion only if you belong to a privileged group, have family ties with upper management, or a former colleague of executives
    -they don't like feedback, today even One of the executive publically asked people not to leave negative comments on social media, Not sure what world are they living in.
    - they have no strategic direction, just following what competition is doing
    -engineering is week with no real innovation
    - competent people leaving or already left
    - salary is lower than market
    - management don't walk the talk, they have different rules for the staff than what they actually do themselve
    - only director and above get the equity as the rest don't deserve to be retained per management

    Advice to Management

    Please stop supporting your kith and kins and focus on what investor and market desires
    Get out of your self created bubble and address the real issues in the ground

    I have been working at Verifone full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - POS industry leader so you get experience with popular POS products
    - unlimited vacation (if your manager agrees)

    Cons

    - The senior engineering management is a revolving door of VPs that have short term perspective (what can I say I accomplished here). They have little consideration for the people doing the work and make a habit of not communicating fully.
    - My experience is that salary compensation is good but a lot of employees claim it is not competitive. I think this may be additional evidence of management problems.
    - no diversity. Management claims they want a diverse workforce but I have no idea why so many minority and women quit.

    Advice to Management

    Plan to stay a while. Take some time to really listen to the people and be honest with them. Verifone leads the industry - dance with who brought you to the party!

    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?

    I worked at Verifone full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good vacation polices as of 2016

    Cons

    No clear leadership from middle management and vice presidents, lack of communication, lack of internal promotions as they always tend to hire from outside which leads to high turnover rate, low morale

    Advice to Management

    Serious re-evaluation of your leadership teams and the communication that makes it way down from the top.

    Pros

    I can't think of ONE... NOT ONE!

    Cons

    Stress-level is best described as a "heart attack waiting to happen". MANY, MANY employees with severe health issues due to being overworked, understaffed, and treated like a pack animal. "THE BIG LIE" is "I REALLY feel like we're getting ready to turn a corner". THAT CORNER doesn't exist. Verifone is the epitome of everything negative, heartless, and cruel associated with today's corporate America.

    Advice to Management

    QUIT.... tell your teams to RUN AWAY! RUN FAR, FAR AWAY!

    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.

    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.
