    Lovely experience for a decade. Salary increase minimal and cost of living in Dubai extremely expensive.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat destinations, young and enthusiastic crew, excellent career growth.

    ConsNot much salary to cater to the expensive Dubai lifestyle especially for crew with family's. Rent and school fees extremely expensive

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe considerate to cabin crew with family's and offer some education and medical benefits. Living out allowance must be able ti pay rent to a decent area in Dubai.

    Getting bigger every but not getting better.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsStable company.
    Airline tickets.
    Company brand.
    HR is very pro active.

    ConsMedical insurance is not fair for all.
    Middle managers must reach out to the lower ranking staffs to see and understand their financial situation, there are big gaps between salaries which is actually pulling down the morale of the lower rank employees even though there is little distinction between job responsibilities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMedical insurance should be at least be same for all regular employees.
    It's not bad get bigger and bigger, but employee benefits ans salaries must also be uplifted.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Review

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsTravel benefits are great for employee and near family, overall package is good ( basic salary plus option for an accommodation allowance or provided accommodation, medical benefits, visa sponsored and annual leave). Diversity of the organisation provides good opportunities to work with people from different backgrounds which I would not have had the opportunity to do to such a broad extent in my home country

    ConsSometimes with promotional opportunities it seems a particular person may have been earmarked for a role which can hinder development. More flexible working approaches could also be applied to support employees with families as the office hours can be challenging to accommodate this.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Roller Coaster

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    Prosnever a dull moment, constant change, always waiting for the next big thing. Benefits including generous leave are good from junior management grades upwards especially if you are married with children. Basic salaries as with most travel and transport companies/organizations are not as competitive as some other industries. Inflation levels in Dubai have shaved meant off the real value of some benefits such as accommodation, transport and education allowances.

    ConsUnlike global multi nationals there is no clear cut path to growth and development. As in any rapidly growing company there are however many opportunities to move upwards in certain departments. In others you could end up staying in the same position for years until a suitable vacancy comes up. Work Life balance is good but can be improved with progressive approach to managing and measuring productivity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrong leadership inspires confidence but the organization needs to live up to the values of being progressive and innovative from an internal perspective and not just externally. Don’t follow the norms such as maternity leave allowances, working from home, flex time. Take a leadership stance when it comes to managing productivity and employee welfare. Don’t be afraid to pilot new ideas. Emirates needs to retain and attract the best talent and the workforce of tomorrow will have very different expectations and needs to the ones today- regardless of nationality or cultural background.
