    I worked at Emirates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flight benefits and that is it

    Cons

    If your face doesn’t fit, they will get rid of you. There are too many people earning huge salaries and not delivering anything. Instead the rest of us suffer and lose our jobs.

    Advice to Management

    You might as well just fire all of HR as it’s a pointless department.

    Pros

    Work environment is brilliant VERY flexible regarding shift swaps, making it possible to go on lots of little holidays +30 days of leave a year Management is understanding, approachable Not much of a sense of hierarchy, you feel like people are on the same level Staff travel benefits

    Cons

    Very low salary for the UK Can only progress up to contact centre team leader (or other positions in the contact centre) Overall very limited opportunities to work in other departments unless based in the UAE Sales elements with no commission
