    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!!

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

    Pros

    The overall pack was amazing. The money is good and it's all for yourself because you don't pay taxes. Accomodation is provided or housing allowance is paid in addition to the salary. We stayed in overall nice hotels and most layovers were nice although most of them were 24 hours. We had a lot of discounts at stores and restaurants... Abu Dhabi is a nice city to live in

    Cons

    Long working hours with sometimes minimum rest hours between flights. This was exhausting and you reach a point where you can't get out of bed. The company's vision has been unclear for the last three years and constant change in management and restructuring affected the business and the passengers' experience. Which meant it was up to the crew to defend the company's reputation onboard the aircraft when passengers got onboard and complained about the constant changes. There was a culture of bullying which unfortunately was not addressed much. Hierarchy is everything on board and if the captain tells you off for no reason, nothing you can do about it because his word weighs more than yours. There was no pay raise for four years. Most Cabin managers hold their posts because they have been with the company for so many years. Passengers can tell you off, be rude to you, shout at you and call you names and you still can't defend yourself because if you speak back, you'll probably end up with a warning (passengers are always right in this company)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the freedom in Abu Dhabi, compared to other countries in the Middle east where I have lived. It's a nice place to live.

    I have been working at Etihad Airways full-time

    Pros

    Good pay , great travel benefits , and almost all expenses covered . No seniority so it’s a great airline for new joiners to have the chance of flying to new destinations.

    Cons

    All cabin crew have to be based in Abu Dhabi ; therefor very far for many staff. Rosters can be extremely busy.
