    Pros

    working with great people whom are smart and know what they are doing and are hard workers.

    Cons

    Management will work you to the bone and not appreciate all your hard work. They don't offer any incentives for the hard work you do. Most companies in the bay area offer free drinks and food like weekly/ monthly lunches this company does not. Most companies have a bonus plan this company only offers bonuses to management and upper management. Most companies offer stock in the company this company only offers stock to management & upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to get the job done instead of over working your staff. Listen to your employees when they suggest improvement instead of ignoring them. Appreciate your staff and show them you do by having team lunches and telling them you do. Offer a better package to your employees. For us on work life balance instead of work work work. Don't be such a cheap company.

    Pros

    Flexible time off (very recent change)

    Cons

    Initiatives to improve the business are mostly talk. Few projects are actually completed here and there is way too much internal dysfunction.

    Compensation isn't great and don't expect to be rewarded for hard work. Expect to see poor performers around you earn the same or more, no one seems to get fired here. Many work around the clock here and the pay doesn't match the hours.

    Very cheap. Benefits are scarce, you can't even get a discounted gym membership. Budget cuts galore (no $$ for office parties) that only seem to apply to junior people and don't affect the top.

    Miserable office culture.

    Advice to Management

    Actually reward employees for hard work instead of just talking about it. Don't keep poor performers around, it lowers everyone else's morale.

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

    Pros

    The unlimited PTO.

    Cons

    Unprofessional work environment in the NY Sales office. Heads of Sales and Marketing are the absolute worse managers. Diversity is not welcomed! HR and Finance departments are a disgrace. Media team lacks professionalism and smarts. Worse experience of my career and would not recommend this company if you are a media professional.

    Advice to Management

    HR and Finance departments need an entire restructure and Diversity training needs to be implemented to educate the ignorant individuals in the so called "Media" division.

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

    Pros

    - There are some very talented and intelligent engineers, architects, and analysts you will have the opportunity to work and learn from in this company
    - Exposure to all areas of I.T.

    Cons

    - Depending on which department you fall under, expect to work long hours on just about any project or application you support
    - Very cut throat and always the do more with less mentality
    - Extremely stressful at times, then again what job isn't right? But with this company, be prepared to do whatever you need to do to not have much of a life, because if you don't, you are frowned upon

    Advice to Management

    - Find a replacement for Amdocs

    Pros

    Good company with good benefits. Health, vision, dental, 401k, PTO. Good environment.

    Cons

    Many of the employees dedicate a lot of time to their jobs, making harder the work life balance. Systems need some change that help to get the job done faster.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate systems used for most of the departments and reevaluate the amount of time many of the Managers and Supervisors spent daily.

    Pros

    Nothing really I can think of.

    Cons

    They fired the CEO, CIO and most of executives when stocks dipped in 2014. The new management which took over is trash. They started with big layoffs. My team was cut down by 50% and all remaining folks had to work overtime. Yearly salary increments are 1-2%, no performance bonus, no team events, no company activities. Basically you are trapped in a worst possible work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Resign and give way to capable people.
