      Pros

      The on boarding process was good! Initially, working there was nice, but then there was a change in the management which literally plunged the entire work life with Emirates. Tickets are good. Colleagues were the only saving grace!

      Cons

      Inhumane management! Sick Leave Certificate is needed when you take a day off cause instead of resting they recommend we wait at the doctors for hours :) Shifts were terrible Vacations? What's that? Did I mention how terrible the management is?

      Pros

      Travelling for work is a perk in itself! The company provides decent accommodation or an accommodation allowance, with transport to and from work. Free laundry for uniform. Many discounts throughout the city! Also, the travel perks!

      Cons

      Too many to list. I would only recommend for the travel perks but nothing else.

      Pros

      Travel benefit is the best perk that you can get from this company. They have a lot of destinations to travel.

      Cons

      The company is too politicized by a certain race. I don't want to be specific but most people know it.
