    Cons

    Chaotic , un planned If they were in Silicon Valley they wouldn't survive attrition due to chaos and low pay - high attrition

    Advice to Management

    I think the management needs to provide better pay to top employees - RSU to top performers to retain them and do periodic house cleaning in technology side

    Pros

    Nice culture which breeds nice people to work with as a rule. Diverse business with opportunities in many areas of the business.

    Cons

    No cost of living raises. If you're at a ceiling, you'll lose money every year you work for Sabre.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't had a raise in 7 years. Rounding to a 2% per year inflation, I'm making 14% less than when Sabre hired me. Loyalty to Sabre shouldn't come at such a high price.

    I have been working at Sabre as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sabre works hard to ensure that they go beyond the stereotypical internship by holding various events for their interns. Executive Forums, networking opportunities, and the intern case competition are just a few of the opportunities I’ve had the privilege of experiencing. One of my most memorable experiences was being able to meet Tom Klein, the CEO of our company, and learn the secrets to his success. I’ve also had the opportunity to not just meet, but also truly build relationships with top-level executives who are all the prime example of why this company is such an amazing place to work. The company also offers a Young Professionals Council (YPC), which allows interns to make new friends and gain valuable leadership skills within the Sabre Corporation. You can also work from home if your boss lets you.

    Cons

    Large company, takes time to get approval on projects and to contact people.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sabre full-time

    Pros

    The company is growing and business is booming

    Cons

    Inadequate management direction causing multiple overlapping 'must haves' without the consideration if the deliverables are realistic. When concern is raised, its too late because everyone has already moved on to discuss how the next 'opportunity' can be delivered, while failing to see all other previous commitments through.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the madness and get a prescription for organizational Ritalin.
