    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!

    I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Tax free, accommodation/transportation supported, staff ticket benefits, free dry cleaning - 30 days leave per year - Multi-cultural, positive environment - Easy job, fun to work! - You travel and make money at the same time - If you try you can save money super easy but also you can spend a lot with this job, really depends on people

    Cons

    - Situation changes a lot depends on management and industry environment - As size got bigger, cabin crew treated worse and worse - No room for growth, career path is limited, even promotion is not related how good you are but management situation, so this job is for young people to short period of time who wants to travel and enjoy - Crew evaluation system seems not reflect the performance right - Just one mistake...

    I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Right away you get to travel internationally to amazing cities and stay in great hotels - some other airlines you'd have to pay your dues doing domestic for several years, but that isn't the case here. - good career advancement; I was working in economy for only a year before having the opportunity to advance to working in business. - You get to work with some really amazing people - It was so fun and interesting...

    Cons

    - As an employee you are disposable, management doesn't care much about you. - The attitude where the customer is always right... sad that you cannot trust the company to back you up in some instances. - low employee morale for the above reasons. When you don't feel like your company cares about you, it's hard for you to care about your job. Overall, it really is a job where you do it for the travel and good times,...

    Advice to Management

    I believe you too are under a lot of pressure to get things in order, and I realize a lot of crew can be difficult to manage... however, it is very unfortunate that good honest employees feel as though they get treated like they are unimportant. Not sure what the solution is, but just some thoughts :)
