    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.
