    Pros

    Good for a Telco career. Good for your resume. Very nice people & network. Good compensation & benefits.

    Cons

    Bad if you're focussed on high-tech products, apps or web business. It's far away from acting and producing like a startup. But still one of the best among big enterprises in Turkey, as almost all are disappointing in TR ecosystem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being corporate power-point people and innovate!

    Pros

    Managers do not behave like managers, very easy going people. Great environment to work with many facilities. You can try new technologies and use them in production.

    Cons

    Upper management issues, lack of awarding success, unclear and no ending tasks, sometimes doing ridiculous things just to show to upper management, too many contract based low quality engineers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make difference between the employees who work and who don't work or don't let the ones who don't work be part of your team. Do not classify employees due to their graduation year. Please show some respect to their technical skills.

    Pros

    The office culture is friendly and relaxed. The wages are slightly above-par. Creativity and innovation are encouraged and awarded.

    Cons

    The intensity of workload might shift abruptly resulting in disturbance in work-life balance. The promotion structure is discouragingly rigid. The HR procedures are ineffective and the HR staff are not very successful in evaluating talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - increase the overall quality of HR.
    - ladder of promotion should allow exceptions for exceptional employees.
    - bureaucratic issues (especially IT-related ones) that slowdown progress should be resolved.
