    Good start, but now I'm waiting for the right offer to go away forever!

    Sales and Traffic Agent (Current Employee)

    ProsWell, it's kind of working in a very rich environment, where money is not a problem.

    ConsThe local turkish management. not organized, not capable to manage personnel, more focused on personal needs than the well being of the employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementShould call back all lower management abroad and keep just a country manager on site. Local personnel does not need 24/7 supervision and most of the times is more capable than the turkish management.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The worst HR policy

    Specialist (Former Employee)
    Istanbul (Turkey)

    ProsTravel to many International cities.

    ConsIf you do not have political affiliation with management`s, getting promotion is a kind of miracle.
    You have to be ready that your manager or SVP can not understand English.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPerformance must be evaluated according to professional criteria, not personal or political. With this kind of HR policy, You may have a big problem to keep yespecially in a position airline`s well known reputation.

    High branding but low management capabilities

    Revenue Management Specialist (Former Employee)
    Istanbul (Turkey)

    ProsStrong brand perception, ability to fly for free. The company makes traveling easy by providing cheap flights and discounted accommodations in many cities of the world. The overall brand name is prestigious and offers serious advantages when talking with outsiders regarding job issues.

    ConsNo employee branding, no clear career steps given, unjust in many internal processes, employees are bipolar in cultural issues, there is no rapport with the higher management and frontline employees, office manager are incapable in terms of foreign languages ( 2 managers in London can not speak English!), management & marketing theories and employee communications. Employees are upgraded and promoted not according to traits but political interactions. Many managers are less knowledgeable and capable than their staff. The overall ego of the employees is high and the company culture is closed to innovation. Turkish airlines is just a generic company which simply copies other major airlines. The government provides fiscal and managerial support to the company so the expected profit is a bubble, the company is exoanding faster than it's capabilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe truthful and provide internal justice. Pause growth and cure frontline personnel as they are the ones crating the brand image along with high budgeted commercials.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fair

    Parttime (Current Employee)
    Istanbul (Turkey)

    ProsMost professional Company in Aviation among others in turkey. Sufficiently close to city. Health care is at maximum. salaries are above similar companies.

    ConsSalaries are based on time you have worked for the company not based on your performance. Women to men rate is below one.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    turkish airlines

    Instructor (Current Employee)
    Istanbul (Turkey)

    Prosthis job gives good salary and benefits when we compared by other equivalence jobs. But cannot be compared with other multinational or huge corparations.

    Consthere is no career planning or performance management for employees. its big problem for career oportunities and personal satisfaction.
    All appointment to the good positons done by politic reasons.

    Advice to Senior Managementonly deservingness!! select and up grade employees properly. especially senior managers and directors!! they have no compatence and they do not understand whats happening around there.
    ther is no way to speak same language and focus on same point with them...
    to conclude HR policy is awful.
