      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Emirates full-time for more than 20 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 for more than 6 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.
