    I worked at Emirates full-time

    Pros

    Medical insurance is good. $5 co pay.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. Throw away the leaders in the NY office and hire new staff. The culture is stifling; it will suck the life out of you. Leadership are micro managers. Processes are outdated which makes it difficult to do your job efficiently. Hiring practices are discriminatory. Diversity in leadership is pretty nonexistent. This place is stressful.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great discounts, decent retail hours, and you can usually get one weekend off per month. Pay is pretty decent but you have to negotiate good from the beginning.

    Cons

    Slow workplace that can easily become a toxic environment. Rude management. In many ways you will feel micro-managed. The pay is decent but the benefits aren't the best. Too many black-out dates. No real work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees how you would want to be treated. Criticize in private and congratulate in public. Most employees feel overworked and extremely unappreciated. Moral effects momentum.
