    Pros

    Friendly staff
    Good engineering team
    Very flexible working conditions
    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.

    I have been working at Venture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Real hands-on opportunities for technical design, authority in making design decisions, very little politics among technical staff, no clock-in clock-out.

    Advice to Management

    Please set up realistic systems for technical staff to work with. Even if clients require us to follow their systems there must be some fundamental ones from Venture. For example, insist on overall project schedule at the beginning of project, even if it can change along the way.

    Pros

    location may be considered convenient, near mrt and bus stop just outside the workplace. maybe an ok place to start

    Cons

    depending on the manager that you report to, no balance between work and personal life. local mindset, pay not that good yet expects staff to be an all-rounder. some of the senior management leaders tend to micro-manage. lack of communication and very top down culture. it may not be an ideal place to work for long-term

    Advice to Management

    improve on the cons. re-balance pay and expectations on employees. improve work culture, leadership style for better positioning for the longer-term.
