    I worked at Emirates full-time

    Pros

    Tax free salary. Not much else

    Cons

    Poor management, long hours, no time off, no social life, could not choose housing, could not have visitors after midnight, it was a horrible job

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees... they put their lives on the line daily. They need sleep. Take care of them!
