    I worked at Etihad Airways full-time

    Pros

    Good salary compared to other airlines

    Cons

    Worst company culture with unrealistic expectations. Nepotism towards local works in the UAE. Management speaks to employees in a condescending tone and belittles people with shame and embarrassment. They will promise raises, bonuses and then never deliver on it. Management needs to improve dramatically. Very poor management skills with very little experience or knowledge of how to manage a team. If you want to work extremely hard and not get paid or recognized for it then work here. Most of the people that work here are extremely unhappy and unmotivated.

    Advice to Management

    remove senior managers and replace with people who truly understand how to LEAD
