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

    Pros

    - Smart people around.
    - Stable employment
    - Good opportunities if you are truly interested in developing new technologies
    - Good side benefits

    Cons

    - The type of might get boring after spending some years
    - Single customer. Customer concentration results in dictation.
    - Lack of rotational programs within the company. Arguably siloed organisational structure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start delegating downward. Give more responsibility and decision making rights to the people who really do the job.
    Spend time on giving feedback, let people know how they can improve themselves. Introduce sound and quantitative performance metrics. Get rid of dead wood.

    I worked at Aselsan as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    * Transportation service is perfect, you can use it from almost everywhere in Ankara.
    * Working hours are between 7:30 - 4.30 so you can leave work early and don't need to be stuck in traffic.
    * In the kitchens, there are free tea, coffee. Also, there are refreshments in the morning. Good way to start the day.
    * Working environment is nice. Not over-disciplined.
    * Dress code is strict. You can come to the office even with jeans and t-shirt.
    * Hierarchical organization is well defined and structured.

    Cons

    * Salaries are good for Ankara but not great.
    * Not much opportunities to self-develop.
    * Company pays too much importance to the redundant, boring and unprofessional presentations.
    * They do not pay enough importance to your education. For example, a Phd is less important than working experience.
    * The projects are low quality and too simple for a serious defence company.
