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

    Pros

    - great salary and perks; - good destinations; - little expenses as company provides accommodation and transportation to and from work; - great place to work when you’re young and to save money.

    Cons

    - you’re just a number. Company doesn’t care about you. Everything is good until you make one mistake (calling sick when you’re really sick, for example); - bad management; - not enough rest between flights; - if customers verbally abuse you, there’s no way the company will back you up. It will always be your fault; - meritocracy not valued.
