Overall reviews at ICBC
starting to circle the drain
work loads are constantly being adjusted to higher and higher levels
management is more concerned with measuring goals and targets than supporting staff
little recognition that leaders are asking more from staff than is reasonable
if you manage to surviving your own drowning workload, your reward is having someone else's work added to pull you under
with the change over in insurance product, many departments are overwhelmed
the number of people working on the 'old' book of business is dropping faster than the number of files resolving
for unionized employees, there are strict rules on working over time so there's little option to get caught up on how far behind you are
for non-unionized employees, you are expected to keep up with your work load but you aren't going to get paid any more. If you look at your per hour earnings, that number is dropping.
the people you work with are generally great. management might not be able to help you much but it's not because the individual managers don't won't to -- they are hamstrung by those above them
more flexibility in work right now -- most positions are flex - roughly half in the office, half WFH
benefit package is good
Interesting, stressful, continually changing organization
Training provided. The reality is that if you are ever caught up in your job, you are not doing it properly for the Injury adjuster position. (as told to me by management). There are literally more tasks, emails, problems to get through than is humanly possible. You feel a bit like a hamster on a wheel. Job security is good though. Pension is good. Opportunities for advancement if you are willing to move to the mainland.
Don’t bother wasting your time with this poor excuse of a company
Management is always on your case, there’s no support from coworkers and there is prevalent racial preference there.
You’ll always be at a situation where there are “cliques” at work and find yourself out of place because you either haven’t worked there long enough or you don’t know anyone.
I have been bullied by a coworker from day one
ICBC claims to have a zero tolerance policy for bullying. Yet despite two formal complaints and "investigations", my tormentor continues to work there and harass me every day. I have never in my life worked in such a toxic environment.
Unfortunately leaving is not an option for me.
As an examiner the job is fast paced. In and out and need to be on schedule. Need to provide customer service to people that just passed or failed road test. Supervisors have your back at all times. Work environment is great with co workers. You will always meet someone to talk to.

ICBC is a very stressful and unthankful place to work.
If you don't mind being micromanaged and told daily what you are doing wrong and then every few months fighting for a new shift that will likely include weekend and evenings no matter your seniority then this is the place for you.
Great place to work.
Enjoyed my time working there. Over the years the culture has changed significantly. Talking to others that work there now it is a little more stressful. The benefits are good. The people that work there are great. The benefits are among the best.
Not supported by management
ICBC cares more about their public perception than doing the right thing by their employees. In spite of having a good rapport with most of the public- was not supported by management over trivial complaints.
Productive, fun work place
very friendly workplace, people are polite and salaries are enough, learned different investment products that I didn't see before, top management is very polite and friendly
Management can be poor. Salaries are on the low end for staff. Generally, very few opportunities for advancement without having earned a university degree.

At ICBC, I was in charge of the independent analysis of the credit applications submitted by the relationship managers. My duties involved the detailed analysis of the business and financial profile of the counterparties, as well as assessing the lending structure, which included syndicated loans, bilateral trade finance facilities, structured trade finance facilities such as pre-export, oil reserve based, receivables backed. I used to contact the clients with the relationship manager in order to seek detailed clarifications on financial accounts, business profile and lending structure. I used to present my recommendation orally during a meeting to the Credit Committee. Post-approval, I used to review the documentation.

improvement for my self
As a corporate banking account, besides auditing the corporate financial situation and reviewing corporate cash flow conditions, I need to communicate with clients and my team member effectively, because there are many complicated transactions related to clients’s account. It is my responsibility to assess the qualifications of the opening business accounts and write reports about financial supervision of these clients. Based on my evaluation, our department will draw up the plan for working schedule and estimate the value of the client. What's more, I learned a lot about how to communicate with clients, because of our huge client group.
Consintense work, long work hour
Excelentes condiciones laborales
Trabajar en ICBC ha sido una gran experiencia laboral. El equipo de trabajo, compuesto por excelentes personas, funcionó siempre muy bien y orientado a objetivos concretos y alcanzados exitosamente.
El proyecto de rebranding luego del cambio en la composición accionaria de la entidad ha sido el desafío más importante de mi carrera profesional. Durante ese periodo de tiempo he adquirido una experiencia invaluable y los resultados del mismo han sido los esperados
grato ambiente de trabajo
grato ambiente de trabajo. Revision de contenidos y actividades a realizar en clases de manera cotidiana. Acceso a materiales de audio ,visuales y fotocopiables para cada una de las clases. apoyo constante por parte de los coordinadores de la sede o departamentos a la hora de realizar actividades que esten fuera de los textos y que sirvan de apoyo a ellas mismas.
Prosconstante retroalimentacion y capacitacion
Lots of thing to learn
Lots of opportunities and works to be assigned to you, provide training and space to let staff practice and understand further for the job, large bank and fair benefit. But senior management of the bank is not good, always set a unachievable goals and ask you to complete. Relatively lower compensation compare with other large banks.
