    I worked at Verifone full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High tech jobs in an area that doesn't have many. Excellent compensation for upper management. Not so much for the grunts.

    Cons

    Former 18 year employee.
    The product design "teams" (of which I was a part) are spread throughout the world and project communication of task allotment, schedules and priorities are not adequate. Non-existent actually. Schedules were set with zero input from the people doing the work. I was very glad when I was laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring Senior Vice Presidents and start focusing on your engineering processes, which need major improvements that could be easily be accomplished, unlikely as that may seem.
    All you needed to do was ask those that have subsequently left.

    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

    Pros

    Co-workers are a great group of people, supportive, and hardworking.

    Cons

    In my division there wasn't enough to staff to do all the work. Executive management expected staff to work at least 10 hour days and to work on weekends on short notice.

    Advice to Management

    Use the company profits to hire more people so that the workload is more evenly distributed across the staff. Work/Life balance matters.

    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.
