    I worked at iCar Asia for less than a year

    Pros

    Good people Very diverse crowd Location Life / work balance The perfect 9 to 5 Overall P&T is (very) good at executing. If you are looking for a nice team to enjoy the ride. Perfect place! *this review only applies to P&T

    Cons

    iCarAsia is a relatively small company with a lot of money, a lot of managers and not enough focus. If you are looking for a place where you will get a positive challenge, get exposed to new ideas ... keep looking. 2 risk averse / control freaks who are very good at politics ... but not so much at managing people. *this review only applies to P&T

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your users (not on people to please within the company). Watch out for the culture ... it can make you or break you. Start having 360 reviews. Send your managers for training once a year. Get out of your comfort zone and disrupt yourself.

    I have been working at iCar Asia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great office - Great people, everyone is friendly and passionate about what the company's purpose - Exciting to learn new and leading technology and products - Free fruit in the fridge every week - You get flexibility if you are a high performer

    Cons

    - Everyone is challenged to perform to their best, but that's what it takes to be number 1. - Medical coverage could be better - Would be great to have a group wide company day/weekend

    Advice to Management

    - Keep it up, number 1 is the only option

    Pros

    Ever since joining iCar in 2012, I've been empowered to grow with the company simply because I understood the vision and had the drive to make that change. For me, it is the ability to run far with a clear vision, even if it's not 100-percent related to my job description. Thumbs up and five stars to the fast-growing company! The sense of ownership of what we are doing is tremendous, and I'm proud to say I work here....

    I have been working at iCar Asia for more than a year

    Pros

    - iCar has a clear vision of where it's heading to. - Casual and relax working environment - Positive, supportive and encouragement from the management - Staff teamwork and friendliness - Plenty of career opportunities The overall best experience that I work here - management does not micro manage my work.

    Cons

    This is not a place for everyone. We are fast moving company (from startup to growth) and if you can't catch up, you'll be left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the clear vision!

    I have been working at iCar Asia

    Pros

    - Relaxed working environment, with very friendly colleagues. As long as you are doing your job honestly and finishing your tasks on time you can balance your personal and work life perfectly. I mean it is perfectly fine to come a bit late (if you have any important thing to do) just send an email that you are stuck and will be late to the office and finish your task by sitting a bit late (or even do it from home). -...

    If you are not smart enough to work with smart people don't blame others but yourself. At least give it a try and be smart :)

    Pros

    Staff are very passionate about the brand and the camaraderie among colleagues is truly inspiring. It has been an absolute please coming to work and seeing how much people want to affect change and make a difference. I also believe there is a very real connection between the leadership's vision and what teams are delivering. When teams are faced with challenges instead of solutions, purpose becomes the main driver...

    Cons

    Change is very rewarding but challenging and there is still a lot to improve, in particular we need to do a better job surfacing Career Paths across the company. We have a good plan to tackle this in the next quarter. In the technology front there was a much needed investment in the automation space, the heavy lifting has been done this year so that very soon the effort required to deploy will be significantly reduced,...

    I worked at iCar Asia full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - V supportive CXOs and higher management, always available to listen to you - Informal and smart casual work environment to bring the best out of you - Multi-cultural, Multi-lingual work place where you learn a lot about new stuff - Career growth within the company - Agile and start-up environment with cool rewards - Weekly and monthly meetings; free food and drinks

    Cons

    - Challenging work assignments since the company is running in a fast paced manner, so unless you give your 100% you might stay behind and it will look like a problem to you (which actually is not) - It's not a con but a look-like-con; there're some negative people spreading negativity about the company hence you get a negative vibe of iCar (which is not actually true)

    Advice to Management

    - Keep doing the great work you're doing

    I worked at iCar Asia

    Pros

    iCarAsia was a fantastic place to learn and i believe that it still is. It’s an extremely fast moving company in a highly competitive industry. CEO keeps the company updated consistently and sets a clear view of where the company is working towards. If you’re looking for a mundane job where you perform repetitive work from 9 to 5 daily, this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you’re willing to be challenged...

    Cons

    Timelines are tight, workload at times exceed the capacity of the teams but hey, you can’t expect to race in a supercar and expect the ride comfort of a family sedan.

    Pros

    Clear mission and they deliver what they say - everyone works together as a team. Good working environment. Very smart people everywhere in the company. People from all over the world means you get to learn more about Thailand, Indonesia, Australia, and more!

    Cons

    If you want an easy job where you come in at 10am and leave at 5pm this is not the job for you. But if you want to advance your career and be challenged to do something great then apply and give it a try!
