    I have been working at Qatar Airways full-time

    Pros

    The company is growing at a tremendous rate with lots of chances for progression Staff travel perks are excellent including one free ticket anywhere per year and you can add friends and family to staff travel list Year round sunshine in Doha

    Cons

    Pressure in the job can be quite a lot, there are high expectations of the staff. Doha itself is very busy, traffic is quite a hassle until the rail project opens up in the next couple of years.

    I worked at Qatar Airways full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fairly good wages. Flexible roster and easy overtime with good rates (maybe not like this in all airports/countries). Excellent travel benefits for yourself and immediate family on QR and dozens of other global airlines, not just oneworld. Very easy to use staff travel system. Annual free tickets (taxes only). Very good internal IT systems/Apps. Good quality training in Doha and good hotels when you are there on Duty. Good support network in Doha for most issues.

    Cons

    No business class travel allowed on leisure, on any airlines. No friends tickets - suddenly removed for all employees without warning. Culture of blame and micromanagement. Staff reporting each other for totally insignificant mistakes is rife. Difficult to progress.
