    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 worked at Emirates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Traveling around the world and experiencing different cultures
    -Flexible working time
    -Working with colleagues from all over the world

    Cons

    -Working overnight caused a lot of health issues
    -Unable to live at home
    -Duty might change all the time

    Advice to Management

    I would say joining emirates has been one of the best experience in my life. I got to be more independent and had a chance to see the world. However, i think there are still some things need to be changed in this company. They should put more attention on cabin crew's health since working hour and the work load is too much.
