        I worked at Turkcell full-time for 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.
