    favoritism by local management in evaluating salary hikes

    They should be fair in all respect to employees. Employees who work hard should be evaluated sincerely not just someone who is simply good in flattering and real time sycophants

    Pros

    Airline Ticket Benefits is the only positive thing in the company

    Cons

    No Work Life Balance Manager try to put you down Managers don't do anything for there subordinate growth and try to use there Subordinates for there own growth Blame Game No work Life Balance Pay is less. Depends on where you are from and sometimes based on skill the pay is less Many Managers are unskilled for the job and hired based on color

    Advice to Management

    Start recruiting Leaders. The Bosses you have hammer down skilled people to bring them to there level of stupidity and then say they are not useful.

    I have been working at Etihad Airways full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Perks and Benefits offered by the company specifically in terms of tickets - Good emoluments - Working culture is more like a Page 3 script, show off your ideas / work done ... but nobody cares of the result :-)

    Cons

    - Useless think tank at Country and HO level (vision lacks commitment) - No quantifiable measure to identify good employees and their efforts taken to get work done - Lack of belief in the product and aims for big without having basic infrastructure for sustenance in place - Useless service standards onboard flight as well as at AUH airport with lot of arrogant employees

    Advice to Management

    - High Time they did a self-assessment before it runs out of fuel similar to Kingfisher Airlines - Should have surprise feedbacks through travel partners / flyers - High time they did have good leader for Indian market else they shall lose out to competition

    I worked at Etihad Airways full-time

    Pros

    Abu Dhabi is great for family life. Expats make it worthy to live there!

    Cons

    There is racism at work surprisingly the Eniratis are very nice people to work with. The problem lies with the Operations & Training. Unfair practices and bookworms make human touch difficult. I would not recommend this company to anyone who wants a stable job!!

    Advice to Management

    Call up your former employees and hear them out! As contrary to belief , no one spoke in depth or took feedback to most of us who quit !
