    Advice to Management

    Leadership remains one of the most important aspects of the organizational context.However, it seems that Sisecam is not aware of this.

    Pros

    It is very reliable company but quite slow to act. Job security is very hig and people you work with are very friendly. They give presents in bayram times.

    Cons

    salaries are low and not competitive. Holidays are quite restricted, you need to give quite a long notice period. company also run by finance people which does not help to imprive company in technological matters. Sisecam is follower in flat glass area.

    Advice to Management

    should be more proactive
