I don't think Turks are lazy (maybe they are, I don't know), but we know the company culture is easy-going and you can get away with poor performance. Poor management oversight is the problem here and this likely gets worse when people work from home. Salaries are also lower compared to non-game industry jobs, but this is the same everywhere.I hadn't taken work ethics and cultural norms into account, good point. I hear Turkey's wage for software development is pretty poor, and payments can be delayed for months or even years, leading to massive wage losses due to Turkey's horrific inflation rate.
It's a shame not all companies respect skilled and specialized employees, I've always found paying someone extra for that little more commitment cost-efficient long-term, compared to scraping as much revenue out of underpaid staff which is akin to pulling teeth, but that may be a observer bias.
