    Pros

    Great benefits. Nice brand to work for.

    Leadership at the very top needs some development. Too much admin work for sales people who should be out selling not speding large amount of time on internal work.

    Corporate culture should be one of the focus points of the company.

    I worked at Etihad Airways full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Etihad offers its employees the highest salary amongst all other airlines in the middle-east region (i.e.: Emirates, Qatar, Saudi, Oman, Gulf etc.)
    - Provides employees with 10 ID buddy tickets per year apart from the unlimited ID tickets for the employee and his immediate family members
    - Access to great discounts at the Airport duty-free anywhere around the world
    - Quarterly bonuses

    Cons

    - Lots of politics within senior management
    - References are given 101% priority in new staff/candidate selection and hiring procedure (senior management of most departments have relationships with HR staff), applying online is almost useless

    Advice to Management

    - Get rid of internal politics from all departments at all levels
    - Make way for new talent by allowing online applications a chance for selection by banning internal reference system
