    Pros

    Good comany to work for during the crisis, no layoffs.
    Travel discounts
    Brand is recognizable in Dubai
    You work with people from all over the world
    Easy to make friends within the working environment

    Cons

    Brand is recognizable in Dubai ONLY
    Career progression is limited to UAE Nationals
    Not possible to make a lateral move
    Yearly salary increase is below the inflation
    It is often not possible to use the travel discount because the flights are full
    People from all over the world you work with are educated on a belo-average level
    The friends that you make easy end up being the only firnds you have - like all your buddies will be from the same company, you are in a bubble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have employees rotate the departments every 2 years
    Hire for skill not for nationality
    Have a plan for a cabin crew to progress to ground based/office based roles.
