    I worked at Venture full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I did learn some new aspects within purchasing. Also it was very useful to learn SAP a very powerful ERP system.
    Some of the people/co-workers were a delight to work with.
    If you can endure this place for more than 1 year you can work anywhere! It doesn't get worse than this...

    Cons

    It was a volatile environment with people not communicating professionally and yelling at you.
    The pay was low for the volume of work that was given to you.
    Most of the job did not utilize the SAP program to its maximum potential. Most things were done with Excel spreadsheets. Buyers have no purchasing approval authority.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing employees.

    Pros

    Stable company with good management team.
    Employees are extremely self motivated.
    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.

    Pros

    I was able to use every talent that I had, and i always felt appreciated for contributing to daily functions

    Cons

    There was a lot of overtime that was unrewarded because of the nature of the budget. It's okay until you are doing it all the time

    Advice to Management

    Just keep treating your employees well, and when the option is available, do offer them financial incentives and bonuses (whenever that may be)

    Friendly staff
    Good engineering team

    A good place to start working

    Cons

    Company morale for non-managers tends to be very low
    No clear career advancement paths
    Lacking corporate support for US locations
    Benefits and salary are lacking

    Advice to Management

    Management and employee teams are out of touch. Look to grow company wide instead of just meeting the status quo. Work on employee satisfaction, there seems to be little to no pride for employment in the company.
