Attitude towards older colleagues
No specific issue with this. We have a vastly experienced staff and all are respected.
Professional training could improve.
Overall compensation for your work
Competitive compensation package.
I have flexibility and I create my own balance.
I think most people have good things to say about working at Ventech.
Yes. Unfortunately the nature of the engineering business is cyclic and there are ups and downs. Now we are in a down cycle and there have been layoffs due to reduced workload.
Yes, I feel we accomplish interesting and difficult projects.
Inclusive / Diverse
There is diversity in our workplace.
Suggestions for improvement
- Management change (already in progress) with new ideas. Develop and enforce better business practices in all departments, and be consistent in setting expectations for improvements. Also, there needs to be more formal training in some disciplines to remain up to date with technology and be competitive.
What I like about the company
I work in the field and this provides the flexibility that I need at this time in my career.
What I dislike about the company
They have grown too much too fast and have not transition to manage the company as a corporation, rather they were still managing the like a family business.
