No labour rights? I still get a legal, local employment contract, employer pays the taxes and social security for me. I do get LOL, holidays, stable roster, cheap/free tickets for myself and partner/friends, significant discount on gym membership and starting from January - the same for private health insurance. People are very nice (well, depends on where you end up, I hear Romania and Bulgaria might be slightly less friendly but still ok. Can't help with Riga, don't know anybody there).

Of course, there are cons (abundance of them) - just as in any other airline. You have to weigh what matters to you and what you can live with. But don't dismiss an airline because "it has bad reputation and comes from eastern europe so it must be bad".
so we had to work in two different airlines :P
after six years in this „caol mine” named „airline”, flying 500 sectors per year constantly on minimum rest/planned extension twice per week I gave up... and lets dont forget about permanent company pressure to accept rooster changes, off day flying and tension not to report fatigue whenever you are... FATIGUE!!!!
