    Pros

    Plane tickets
    Opportunity to learn
    Difficulty in interacting with multiple nationalities, which improves skills and focus

    Cons

    Discrepancy in the standards of quality in employees background: some are overqualified and some are underqualified

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what makes your employees happy and keeps them interested in their work. Things are improving greatly, but there are more things to do until it's all stablized

    I worked at qatar airways full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and salary, international experience, paid accommodation and utility bills, fast promotions, environment for deep personal growth. Customer service and vip experience. Mixed environment prone to good friendships.

    Cons

    Leadership and direct management are mostly not educated to degree levels and lack professionalism. Company imposes many rules, including ones pertinent to you own social live (all disclosed at time of hire).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managerial positions, such as flight director, should be based on qualifications, not only seniority. Company rules towards employee's social life must be change in order to decrease dissatisfactions rate.

    I have been working at qatar airways full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good entry training, nice building and kitchen for our disposition. Fantastic people, great team of co-workers.

    Cons

    Low compensationd, no real influence on roster planing (which is the only thing we care for). Very poor managment. Let say NO managment at all. The rotation of the people is insane. After a month of work I was one of the oldest workers in our language team. No possibility to grow or to get a better position. It is strictly productive area. We are numbers, classic corporate climate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit and leave jobs for somebody more professional with willingness to work.
