  1. There is no person in the TCDD who will be a deputy director or a member of the Board of Directors. So, the appointed general manager, his assistants, members of the board and some of the heads of departments are always coming from the outside. .. this practice weakens the organization, lowers the productivity, kills the employee, the institution loses credibility.
