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

    Pros

    - Fair & competitive reward for high performers - Decent work/life balance - Great colleagues - Fast paced & exciting environment - Management practices an 'open door' policy and is fair - Very satisfying to see awesome results so quickly after executing ideas - Have seen young members of our team step up and flourish with additional responsibilities and have been rewarded for their efforts

    Cons

    - Needs more initiatives to build culture and togetherness

    Advice to Management

    - Mix it up with the troops in the trenches - Continue the single minded focus of getting iCar Asia to the top

    Pros

    I've worked in startups and big corporations. iCar Asia is the best of both worlds. Our Product and IT team alone is like the United Nations - we have smart people from all over the world working together to make great things happen. The rest of the company is the same. You don't have to believe the "propaganda" - facts are facts: Fast growing company (grown from a few of employees to 200+ in 18 months) Already...

    Cons

    This is a fast paced environment where we build and learn and do it again. Anyone who has ever worked for a successful startup knows it can get messy at times but it also opens doors for new opportunities. It opens doors for people to really step up their career to make a difference. That is what separates the long established player and an innovative startup.

    Pros

    Beautiful Office Great Staff Decent Remuneration Good work life balance CIO that listen and appreciate talents Great IT team Wonderful Consumer Marketing strategy

    Cons

    Mid management cannot handle the truth Hires Managers that does not know the business and not willing to listen. in turn thinking that they have seen the whole world, actually just the sky from the bottom of the well Draggy process in hiring Unable to retain key person/ stake holders. Managers who don't know how to appreciate employee. Demoralize employees.

    Advice to Management

    STOP! and listen. not just hear what your employee got to say. Then take action Be willing to clean up mess and not sweep it under the carpet Managers will need to use more common sense not the so called "experience" Its fine to be bias but just ensure this person is an asset to the company and not just someone who sings music to your ears. A neutral HR is badly needed.
