    I have been working at Verifone full-time

    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.

    I worked at Verifone (Less than a year)

    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

    I have been working at Verifone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - I worked with some very strong engineers
    - Product is technically very interesting and I learn a lot

    Cons

    - Chaotic management, too many people working on the same product (but in different parts of the world) without clear leadership. At times very chaotic.
    - Toxic environment (many weekends and long night shifts in engineering, sometimes until 2am)
    - Blame instead of encouragement

    Advice to Management

    Don't simply blame engineers; rather find out what led to delays and try to improve processes.

    Pros

    unlimited vacation and working remotely

    Cons

    The Executive and Middle management is too inexperience to fix a company in this stage of difficulty. Most didn't come from this business or have the experience commensurate to their title. Project and process is chaotic at best resulting in a lot of wasted effort and inefficiencies. If you're a ambitious go-getter this is not the place for your career.
