    Pros

    Well money is there, there are no cuts on anything, the marketing campaigns are massive and spot on. Employees have some tickets to travel for "free". The aviation academy courses are done by competent and passionate people.

    Cons

    Management, low, middle, high. All is decided by politics. There are no opportunities to grow if you are not turkish or affiliated to a political party. Management has no respect of local laws and for employees and their families. There is no people management course done for these appointed managers, they treat staff badly and think that staff is there only to "steal"money from the company. Most of the time managers think only about their personal business by using the local staff as personal assistants. There is no meritocracy. Difference in treatment between local staff and local but turkish staff.

    Advice to Management

    You should consider calling back all the useless managers you have abroad, they are NOT the face of the company (how can they be when most of them does not speak even english???) Try using the money the company is spending on those and give it so some worthy local manager that can do 100 times better than the turkish manager. Station managers are useless if they are not coming from an operative environment. Start by allowing local staff to grow in the company only by doing this you will have passionate and dedicated staff.

    Pros

    Good salary for the country , mother care opportunities for the workers whom has childs up to 6 years , free shuttle services in the city.

    Cons

    No human resources help and no career opportunities. Bad attitude from technicians to engineers (actually technicians earn more than engineers and talk more than engineers. no offense)

    Advice to Management

    I can only recommend them try to Improve the connection between the mid-level managers and the technicians. They are planning to increase the number of the aircrafts from 250 to 450 . Too much work to do and It can be handled by only improving the communication.
