    Pros

    Fair remuneration scale.

    Personal interest of some senior management interferes with their work and objectivity.

    I worked at Venture full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get a high degree of flexibility when implementing R&D projects. The management is not interested to know how you do it as long you get it done and no fault found.

    Cons

    The schedule is too tight most of the time. Good for people that like a challenge. The business is dependent on management obtaining projects. Not very stable business, ppl have been asked to leave due to no business. Too cost sensitive.

    Advice to Management

    Need to bundle R&D with eventual sales as one package. R&D cannot be a standalone cost center.

    "Project Manager"

    Pros

    Flexibility in carrying out duties to meet corporate goals. Employees are empowered to make decisions. Strong historical variable bonus scheme

    Cons

    Very lean in resources. Below market rate base salaries (but compensated by bonus which is not a given thing). Tools necessary to improve efficiency is sometimes not provided.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are the backbone of the company and it pays to have better employee benefits to reduce attrition. Don't be too cost conscious of tools necessary to do the job properly. Provide more for employee training such that they remain relevant to the business needs.

    I have been working at Venture full-time

    Pros

    Venture has a lot of manufacturing plant probably more than 10 building. The environment of each manufacturing plant is different from each other. So far the place where I work is quite relaxing with pretty fun colleagues. But other buildings have different stories tho.

    Cons

    The job is pretty boring with a lot of tedious documentation works that will consume most of your time. The unnecessary detail that you have to pay attention to will need a lot of patient as an engineer. The pay is not much but good enough for a single unmarried person like me.

    Advice to Management

    It's a good thing that they are willing to hire a lot fresh grad. but because of that a lot of these fresh graduates leave the company few month after work.
