    I have been working at Emirates full-time

    Pros

    - Hierarchy on board is not as bad as in some other Asian airlines
    - Slightly better salary than some other airlines
    - Rapidly growing international company, fierce competitor to other players in the aviation
    industry
    - Free accommodation, bills and transport

    Cons

    - Few and rare crew who are in this job for the right reasons: travel, meeting people
    - Large applicant pool for cabin crew, therefore crew are rarely valued by management
    - Company profit does not equal to profit bonus for cabin crew
    - Cold, often unhelpful staff towards own colleagues

    Advice to Management

    Crew are also human, not all are black sheep.

    I have been working at Emirates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Innovative, Leader in outstanding Customer Service, onboard product is outstanding, great employees and best in Marketing. I'm proud to be an employee.

    Cons

    Growth has been so fast that many employees in headquarters have trouble adapting to a big company operation from having been a small/mid sized.

    My experience has been very long work hours coupled with high expectations from senior management with little support to achieve. This creates 'burn out' among staff.

    Advice to Management

    High expectations are great but make sure that work is evenly distributed within employee groups. Also respect employees days off and vacation time rather than expecting responses 7 days a week whether on or off duty.
