    Pros

    To catch up newest mobile world, it's the best company to work in Turkey.

    Cons

    There is no very qualified manager or colleague inside the company, so they work mostly with out-source companies. Such as a big company, Turkcell, should have very qualified people inside the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give opportunities to your employees.

    Pros

    Working conditions are comfortable. Salaries and side benefits are better than most of the other Turkish companies. Job stability is quite high.

    Difficult to get promoted. Promotions require long experiences in the field regardless of personal achievements. Further education of the employees is taken care of with continous courses and work shops in various fields.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should advice their employees on their career issues, help them improve their skills.
