    I have been working at Emirates full-time for more than 2 years

    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

      -shift work that is poorly rostered -flying back to back with sometimes minimum rest -medical clinics could improve drastically -should be stricter protocols on what is not acceptable verbal/physical abuse from pax and such disruptive pax should be warned and blacklisted before behaviour escalates -option for unpaid leave so you can properly rest & would minimise no. of crew calling in sick -improve concessionary...

      I have been working at Emirates full-time

      Pros

      As a Product Controller at grade 8 you're entitled to Business Class flights - which is a game changer. Good team as well and best in class partners, agencies and software is the norm.

      Cons

      Old way of working (waterfall not agile) and perhaps not enough focus on professional training.

      I worked at Emirates for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Travel, live in dubai, make so many friends and experience an amazing life. well looked after, free accomodation and medical. Good wage and yearly bonus.

      Cons

      Away from home. Expensive strict country and airline so most wages are spent and never saved but some manage it. Just a number in the end not a name.
