    I worked at Emirates full-time for more than 3 years

    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.
