    I worked at Emirates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good and the benefits are some of the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Hardly any cons to this company. Has to do more with training and some of the management.

    Advice to Management

    Need more attention to very much needed training. A source is needed that will be more user friendly. Most importantly, the US stations should have the Cargo Manager and Sales split between two people. Combined position is not efficient and not recommended especially for sales. No incentive.
