    Pros

    Salary, benefits, healthcare, zed tickets

    Company culture is terrible. Lead by fear style of management. Unethical, unprofessional, and illegal activities are taking place everyday, but senior level managers and executives are not being reprimanded for it. One of the worst companies to work for.

    Advice to Management

    The airline is failing because of your poor management and unethical behaviors

    Pros

    Travel perks, 401k and basic healthcare

    Cons

    Terrible management in USA. Too many dictators, no leadership, management heavy with minimal staff out in field selling.

    A lot of false promises and bad or nil communication.

    False promises on inventive / bonus plans

    Large pay gaps

    Arrogant dictatorship and stale sales ‘leaders’

    Advice to Management

    Start to value your staff or what’s left of them. Lose the arrogance.

    Poor management, job uncertainty, internal politics, Etihad is going through a huge loss for the last 4 years. They have been firing people left and right. I wont recommend any one to join this company as this is a sunken ship.
