    I worked at iCar Asia full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nothing much to point out, iCar is like any other startup with some good ideas and investors cash running and hoping to find its place in market. Depends what you are looking for iCar can be right or wrong place, if you are junior/mid software engineer, this might be good place to learn loads of inconsistent technologies (to give you bigger picture and direct you to what suit you the most). iCar has loads of cash in hand, so make sure to raise up and negotiate your package/salary, they definitely won’t reject you. Good office location

    Cons

    Control freak management, with bad attitude. Toxic environment Inconsistent technology stack High turnover, people come and go so often Management/CIO has no idea about technology

    It’s really disappointing to us that you had such a bad experience at iCar, in particular in my team. I wish you had come to see me when you were still around. Something needs to change if we are not creating a culture where people feel they have a voice. The inconsistent tech stack you refer to is not a deliberate choice nor a result of the lack of knowledge from management; its an artefact of change. As you may know one of our key products is based on a tech stack that we have progressively moved away from. Dealing with legacy software is not pretty but needs to be done progressively. On the other hand our core consumer facing tech stack has been using single platform with consistent frameworks and architecture for years, the same strategy is being adopted to the corporate side of our stack where some products due to their experimental nature deviated from this in their early stages. Regarding our work environment, I was really surprised and sad to hear how poor your experience was, things are not perfect at iCar but we take pride in creating a good and safe place for people to work and grow professionally. I wish this had been your experience while working for us.

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

    Pros

    Great team work overall. Very seldom do you see the C-levels working so well as a team. There's no ego, you could literally walk up to anyone and tell them your ideas or constructive criticisms.

    Cons

    In the effort to roll things out quickly, sometimes things are not thought out enough resulting in constant changing of directions especially where customers are concerned. This is expected in an agile environment but could be done better.

    This would probably be one of the best learning experiences I've ever had. I had the chance to learn from many experienced coworkers. - You will work harder than you have ever worked before - You will learn a lot

    Cons

    Nothing as such except Salary
