    Advice to Management

    monitor more the turnover of the agents in each station.

    I have been working at Emirates full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Innovative, Leader in outstanding Customer Service, onboard product is outstanding, great employees and best in Marketing. I'm proud to be an employee.

    Cons

    Growth has been so fast that many employees in headquarters have trouble adapting to a big company operation from having been a small/mid sized.

    My experience has been very long work hours coupled with high expectations from senior management with little support to achieve. This creates 'burn out' among staff.

    Advice to Management

    High expectations are great but make sure that work is evenly distributed within employee groups. Also respect employees days off and vacation time rather than expecting responses 7 days a week whether on or off duty.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good benefits, they promote within, offers profit share, very stable company, good management structure, develope their employees, Treats employees as valuable assets.

    Cons

    The company works lean, hence your role expands as the years go by and employees start to wear multiple hats.

    Advice to Management

    More leading edge technology needs to be developed and introduced to improve efficiency in the workforce. Needs to have a better induction/training program for new hires.

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

    Pros

    Paid accommodation, transport to and from included. Used to stay in 5 star hotels.

    Cons

    Management has no idea what they're doing and live in a culture of fear and bring that energy to the crew, they cut back a lot and have resided to average when they truly used to offer the best. NO room for upgrades.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employers the way you would want to be treated not like a slave.
