    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

    I have been working at iCar Asia full-time for more than 3 years

    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. Plus, inspiring leaders and bunch of fun people to work with.

    Cons

    Not a place for everyone. Only real talents are in!

    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.

    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). - Very supportive management they are always willing to hear from everyone. I think if someone has any problem and he/she is not communicating problem with the management then it is his/her fault. - Smart and talented people who are willing to help and share ideas

    Cons

    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 :)

    I have been working at iCar Asia full-time

    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 and this is when a fundamental shift to value driven delivery takes place, I see all of this at iCar.

    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, increasing autonomy across every product team.

    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)
