    I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Lot of Perks (discounts in many outlets of Dubai) and Cheap Tickets to travel

    Cons

    Basic Salary in AED is lower than contemporary peers with similar experince in other companies. Also work environment is stressful as the company basically operates 24/7 hence colleagues can call over weekends and off time for work purposes

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Just a brand for name sake

    Cons

    - Never ever join Emirates IT - It's a company full of vendors where they have more value then employees. - Baised culture, where your salary decide based on your passport colour and not by talent - They pretend to be number one but no vision... - No growth, not infrastructure... works like old government company where u need approval for even breathing...

    Advice to Management

    - Stop sending useless polls and do some productive work

      I worked at Emirates for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Work is good but to grow or even survive in this organization, you need to do much more than good work!

      Cons

      Run by self centered bunch of managers in IT who are fooling the company and their subordinates alike. Your performance and caliber holds no significance, only your relations with your manager makes all the difference!

      Advice to Management

      Learn to value and retain good employees or you will soon be left only with bunch of selfish managers and their foolish followers!
