Technical Business analyst (Former Employee) – Dubai – February 9, 2018
Work environment and work culture is very good. Career opportunities are also very good but all depends on the project manager. Most of the Project Managers do their own political lobby to give favoritism for the people of their language and region. In those teams promotions are question mark only. Female employees are always given less points than male employees. Overall even though the company is a prestigious one, all depends on the managers of individual teams.
Typical day at work is, wake up 4 hours before your flight departure. Take about 1 hour to get ready, reach headquarters 2,5 hours before the flight. Conduct briefing, make sure every crew is up to standards with regards to grooming, safety and security brief. Talk about the flight, any important customers, expectations. Go to the airplane in a company bus, get the airplane ready for customers. Boarding, take off, flight, service, deal with issues on board ( medical, security, service etc.) Land, passengers leave, final check up, immigration, ride to the hotel. Usually, working hours are 4 hours longer than actual flight time, that is if there are no delays.
I have learned many things on this 8 year journey. I have met a lot of great people, made friends across the globe. I have learned that it is not easy to manage people with different backgrounds, cultures, but it is doable with the right approach. I have learned to be more patient, respect other opinions, understand differences in cultures and backgrounds and much much more. Definitely a great experience with all the flaws included. Management is generally not interested in employees. They work on "reactive" principle. - Something goes wrong, they react, otherwise, you won't notice them. Even then, it's a template management with pre-set emails for every event- warning letters, without effort to really understand what was going on. General politics of the company is everyone is replaceable and if you don't like it, leave. Your duty check in time starts 2.5 hours before the actual flight departure time, and you aremore... payed for flight time only. Most of the flight departures are 02-06 AM, with duties longer than 12 hours, which leaves you not sleeping for more than 24 hours in a row at least 2-3 times a month (extremely unhealthy)- and that would be the hardest part of the job- sleep deprivation. Positive side is that everything is provided, transportation to-from work, accommodation, food on flights, meal allowances on layovers. You travel the World, stay in nice hotels, meet different cultures. Bad thing is, accommodation you are provided with is far from the city, usually a 3 bedroom apartment that you share with other crew. If you opt-out from company accommodation, living out allowance is not enough to pay your rent and you loose the option to use company transportation.less
discounted tickets, on time salary
very short breaks, poor medical, poor management, bad planning, no pension scheme

+ Driving and Supervise the people Deep Cleaning DataCenter + I know all the route in dubai, abudhabi, ajman, sharjan and ras alkhor +Focusing the work + The Hardest work in may life is Extra overtime in work + I enjoy my colleges in work place.
I am not happy with the current job. It is stressful, there is no chance for upgrades, the seniors and managers are not supportive at all. The work hours per month are too much and there is no good insurance for this type of job.
