    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

    Pros

    - Great for travelling the world & get paid for it
    -Stay in mostly very nice hotels
    - Great ab intio training to make you feel competent
    - Work and make friends with lots of nationalities
    -live in Dubai
    -Tax free salary
    -Discount card to use in shops/bars/restaurants in dubai

    Cons

    -shift work that is poorly rostered
    -flying back to back with sometimes minimum rest
    -medical clinics could improve drastically
    -should be stricter protocols on what is not acceptable verbal/physical abuse from pax and such disruptive pax should be warned and blacklisted before behaviour escalates
    -option for unpaid leave so you can properly rest & would minimise no. of crew calling in sick
    -improve concessionary staff travel rates especially for flights to UK. most of the time no discount from full fares. Not really a benefit to UK crew.
    -boost crew morale
    -properly match roommates in company accommodation and make it easier for crew to swap to other accom. if unhappy.
    -upgrade crew just because they have been in the company x amount of years, not based on merit
    -needs better career progression to keep crew motivated
