    Opportunities exist for employees who wants to perform well.
    Fair remuneration scale.

    Cons

    Personal interest of some senior management interferes with their work and objectivity.
    Management style is too top down at times.
    Should try to be more inclusive with employees and listen to their inputs and provide more feedback loop.

    Former Employee - Principal R&D Engineer  in  Singapore (Singapore)
    Former Employee - Principal R&D Engineer in Singapore (Singapore)

    I worked at Venture full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    During initial period of 2000, large profit sharing & Share option which can compensate the lower salary scheme. Starting middle of 2000, change in HR which claim salary review to match market value, the profit sharing drop to very low and no more share option or restricted share option. Better be share holder than employee as the monetary value will be higher.

    Cons

    Tight control in running company, up to hiring of operators which required CEO approval. Depend largely on customer projects, so it's like no clear view of future projects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase the staff welfare in term of financial or recreational. Not only on the revenue goal.

    Good annual bonus

    Cons

    Overwork,
    poor communication between management and worker,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employee as human who want to progress.
    We want more staff welfare such as sport days and teamwork building programs.
