    Positive Outlook

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

    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.

    Approves of CEO

    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.
