    I worked at Etihad Airways full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flights benefits, medical and PTO, 401k

    Cons

    Favoritism, Hire due to physical attributes not because of skills

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff with respect they are not slaves but they are the one working hard to support EY goals. Management is pushy what to do instead of encouraging staff what to do. Terrible! Its a bad middle eastern culture! full of arrogance!

    I have been working at Etihad Airways full-time

    Pros

    Zed tickets on other airlines, work from home

    Cons

    Worst company to work for. Managers and the VP's are corrupt, unethical, and evil. False promises of raises and bonuses... Behind the scenes raises granted for certain managers/favoritism, based solely on personal interests rather than performance. Worst job of my career. Don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Say goodbye to a failing airline! You're corrupt actions haven't gone unnoticed

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, healthcare, zed tickets

    Cons

    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.

    Pros

    Good flight benefits, decent pay, good medical

    Cons

    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.

    They should focus more on dedicated employees
