    Pros

    You are provided a number of opportunities to learn a wide variety of duties. The pay is not the best and the hours can be long.

    Cons

    Highly stressful on occasion. But what job isn't. No real bonuses.

    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.

    I have been working at Venture

    Pros

    1. Several good team working level support with lesser politic
    2. Smart pple and strong working levels comraderie
    3. Currently stable company despite business challeges

    Cons

    1. Long time middle management level very weak, cover their behind approach with partitioning politics playing on working team. Venture need new blood from outside to replace them to change toward growth and competitive arena against industry's best.
    2. Old timer middle managers using isolation of execs to the working level and control working team to stay same and resist new industry ideas without even understanding the depth of details.
    3. Above 2 make most see a too much top down only decision, while reality even basic toilet usages, coffee for execs, inedible canteen foods for decent health, heavily polluted air & working environment shielded to the top execs with no idea what the working level see feel of inhumane frugality experienced daily. Save the penny and waste the dollar as such in reality.
    4. Keep thinking tech talent alone as true naiveness without seeing how redundant yet segregated these tech teams are in Venture. Consolidate and save for the cross working levels more than only tech alone, then engs can run with all other groups supports full heartedly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and ears to the working levels and obtain the truth to feel and make decision more than among execs alone - who are totally shielded by old timer inflexible middle management that stops new ideas and efforts as their working habit. Been here for many years and seeing the same nonsensical no improvement effort at all, thus will leave the moment got an offer outside.

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

    I worked at Venture full-time (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.

    I worked at Venture

    Pros

    Good annual bonus
    Good foodcourt nearby
    Bus stop nearby
    MRT station (YCK or AMK) is few bus stops away.

    Cons

    Overwork,
    poor communication between management and worker,
    No sense of work ownership.
    Poor monthly salary.
    On rented JTC commercial building, don't expect posh facilities and rest room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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