    Pros

    Exposure to very different kinds of people.
    Good medical insurance.
    Nice hotels when in layovers/ stops.

    Cons

    Low pay.
    Minimim crew on most flights.
    No layover for many long flights ex Russia, Germany, Italy, Adis ababa, etc. may return as dead head, but very minimum layover.
    Horrible pursurs (chefs), especially the old women.
    No real policy to protect you from the harrasment u face from other male colleagues/ inflight trainers. Unless u have a witness, no one will take any action even if they management know the truth about the person in question.
    Low pay compared to average salaries for Cabin crew.
    Very berauctaric.
    Limited opportunity for career progression.
    Very bad transportation system for the crew.

    Advice to Management

    Let the old chefs go or at least look into the complaints you receive from new joiners.
    Improve the layovers system and the frequent minimum crew on flights.

    I worked at EgyptAir full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are seeking long term contracts and permanent position ... go for it . contracts there ends by the pension age. good salaries and good private medical insurance.

    Cons

    the worst thing in Egyptair is the certifications of your experience. Egyptair engineers are certified from the ECAA only ... so no EASA 66 license. also the type rating in approved internally from EGME only. so if you traveled abroad .. you have nothing to support you in your career as a LAME.

    Advice to Management

    try to add your engineers to the easa certifications to gain more maintenance contracts . try reducing the management and enlarging the technical department.
