    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.

    Pros

    They prefer to hire fresh graduate and this is a good company to start your career. Its working environment is super clean and every employee are trying their best even without any supervision from top management.

    Cons

    The pay is so low and its raise also has low increment. One Venture culture isn't implement wholly by its employee so that sometimes newcomer didn't stay too long in this company.

    Advice to Management

    Provide with better incentive and increase bonuses each year. Also provide training for workers without bonding them.

    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.

    Cons

    Changing clients, managers, systems for every project. Very challenging schedule for design projects, long OT is common. No fixed process/ systems or facilities maintained.

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    There are no pros working here

    Cons

    Manager and HR have zero integrity

    HR threatened dissimsal due to negligence / misconduct when I refused to agree ti mutuak waiver of notice period. Was forced to amend resgination letter based on threats of future job prospects and dissmisal without notice

    Manager has zero integrity - asks staff who are no longer practising as legal professionals to certify documentd in their capacity as advocate and solitor - claiming the so called authority will not check

    Advice to Management

    Wake up
