      I worked at Industrial and Commercial Bank of China full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      If you need an environment to learn or practice Chinese... Good medical/dental. 401k is okay.

      Cons

      Low compensation for similar experience/title. Understaffed, so extra workload when people go on mandatory two weeks or if sudden project comes up. Poor work life balance. No room to advance. Toxic supervisors. No recognition for hard work, only expect you to work harder while some people get a lot of recognition for doing nothing at all.

      Advice to Management

      Hire local people who know what they're doing instead of sending people from overseas. Pay people properly. Have more than the bare minimum number of staff in each department. Pay people properly (yes, I have to repeat it).

      I have been working at Industrial and Commercial Bank of China full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      No contribute for great health insurance plan (zero copay)

      Cons

      Don't join the company. It is the worst company that you can ever imagine. Micromanaging is nothing compare to sexual harassment, unequal opportunity. Managers love to see team members stay late/long hours even though they have complete the daily assigned tasks. There is a reason that salary is higher than industry average. They fire people without notice or reason and lied to others that the reason for the personal's...

      "Talent management"

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at Industrial and Commercial Bank of China full-time

        Pros

        This is a 5 words minimum requirement

        Cons

        If one underperforms or has personal issues, al he/she needs to do is to accuse management and the whole bank’s system not being fair. Other good performs (who actually make money for the bank)will not be rewarded as they will be targeted for being favored by management.

        Advice to Management

        Treated both talented employees and trouble makers the right ways. A lot of resources wasted in meaningless areas can be better utilized to retain talents and to help the bank grows in right direction.

        I have been working at Industrial and Commercial Bank of China full-time

        Pros

        Job security. Not much other than that.

        Cons

        Low pay. Salary does not increase, not even inflation adjustment. No promotion opportunity. Discouraging working environment as hard work does not equal to reward.

        Advice to Management

        Learn to appreciate the hard working employees and reward them with promotion and salary raise. This place is a revolving door since management never take care of existing employees and only keeps hiring people with higher salary. Why would anyone have the incentive to stay.

        I have been working at Industrial and Commercial Bank of China full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        Easy hours and minimal challenge as bank has few products. Hiring process is very simple since they are a generally unappealing employer outside of China.

        Cons

        Management is incompetent and clueless on local market practices, all appointed despite little to no experience. Compensation is a joke, promotion opportunities nonexistent, rampant nepotism, virtually zero career development. Majority of staff has poor English skills and prefers to speak Chinese which does nothing to improve their situation. Many internal communications are only in Chinese to the detriment of non-Chinese...

        Advice to Management

        Too many issues to list. Hire local competent and qualified people instead of appointing friends and relatives from Head Office who are members of the party.
