    I worked at Turkcell full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * TSAG, while it was managed by Yusuf, used to be a pro on its own
    * Domestic & international reputation of the company
    * Innovative nature

    Cons

    * A lot of political & government influence
    * Organizational mess
    * Obsolete and jaded, underperforming people who have been with the company for 15 years
    * New location

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the political influence and people brought by this movement. Bring back Yusuf to lead TSAG and attract high quality HR.
