Worked for 6 years no job security

Worked in Etihad for 6 years, evey 3 to 6 month they conduct staff realignment and you are at permanent risk of being fired.Not a healty work environment which can allow to nurture talent.Because of continuous firing trust among team members is very low and politics is at peak. No one wants to get fired so everyone wishes for others to get fired so that they can save their job at cost of others.Poor leadership.Dont recommend to anyone to join Etihad regardless of Nationality.

Good work place

Good place to learn and growth, workplace culture is relaxed and flexible. It can sometimes be quite busy, though. Great colleagues and almost u meet a good people.

Ambiente de trabajo desafiante pero gratificante.

Lo recomiendo 100 % ya que es un trabajo fascinante que por su naturaleza de aprendizaje y superación engancha cada día un poco más.Al final aprendes un montón de cada una de las personas con las que trabajas y para las que trabajas porque si observas un poco todas tienen algo que enseñarte.Además viajas, conoces gente muy distinta, países, estás continuamente aprendiendo, viendo, disfrutando...

Pros

Seguro médico, viajes alrededor del mundo gratis, hospedaje gratuito y en hoteles de 4 o 5 estrellas, billetes económicos para familiares y amigos, ...

Cons

Vivir fuera de tu entorno, país, familia y amigos, vida social limitada, muchas horas de trabajo y cambios de turnos, muchas horas de sueño y jetlag o desfase horario, ...

nepotismo, assoluta mancanza di meritocrazia

la busta paga è buona anche perchè è esentasse, in più offrono assicurazione sanitaria e alloggio. a parte questo il management è orribile, e nonostante i benefit ti fanno sempre sentire solo e sempre un numero.

Pros

stipendio, alloggio

Cons

management

Pros

Cons

Everything else

The travel was good, but not as glamorous as it seems.

Was hard work. Great lifestyle in UAE but company totally bends to unfair treatment of staff by government officials. Dubai and Abu Dhabi certainly have a western influence however the laws of the land prevail. Most of the time this was fair and reasonable, except when it wasn’t. Whatever they want to do or say goes, even if in Australia or Western cultures, it would not be considered allowed (legal) in relation to industrial relations, in their country, they make the rules and you have to comply or leave.

Pros

Travel, crew meals, colleagues who you work well with.

Cons

Demanding passengers, being treated poorly by managers.

Progressive work environment

Like any other company Etihad Airways was a productive space. You get to choose how to grow. It was a great experience and I would do it again.I was promoted quickly and that happened because I showed I was hardworking and I wanted to grow. Working at Etihad provides you with a healthy competitive space, for growth and learning.

Would be great if the management didn’t change

At the beginning the company culture was great and it really felt like we belonged to the “Etihad family”. It was a place where you really felt like you belonged. After the management was changed the redundancies started and the attitude the new management had towards employees was completely different. The COVID-19 situation could’ve contributed to this but over time it just kept getting worse and worse for the crew.

Pros

Employee benefits

Cons

Reporting culture, management doesn’t take criticism well

Productive And Fun at workplace

A typical day at work was very busy but at the same time, it was enjoyable especially i am working in the line maintenance. aircraft has a limited time on ground. i learned aircraft maintenance activity and aircraft remains in the operating environment and is substantially fit to fly. Our work culture was respect each other and fairness to everyone.

Pros

Discounted Air fair

Cons

Good package but toxic working culture with a clueless management

I started working for this airline nine years ago. Package was attractive but not sustainable due to lack of budgeting skills from the management. Overtime it become less and less, but still acceptable. The worse thing about this company is the toxic working culture and a totally incompetent management. Most of activities are made just for the show, not for the actual content. Most managers have short-term, self-serving goals, inclosing a certain CEO there in 2012. No real meritocracy, just connections, without it no opportunities. Lastly there were waves of terminations, of thousands of employees, without transparency on the process. Especially about my department, cabin crew, basically there was no appreciation, total disregard for personal files etc. Just everyone suspects it was a warning less, random firing, to be done quickly. This showed the true color, of lack of communication, organization and actual care about people. Management has been a joke since day one, but it turned extremely bad once real problems rose.

Pros

health insurance, paycheck above average, free accommodation

Cons

clueless management, disorganization, waste of resources
