    Pros

    Culture. People. Benefits. Outside of the top 3 I just mentioned, Sabre has a rather large and beautiful campus with several amenity offerings such as an extensive food court, workout facility, outdoor kitchen & patios, etc. Sabre also embraces and encourages work / life balance, including working from home privileges.

    Cons

    Heavy politics. Cryptic management styles and lack of top-tier talent. Also, it's surprisingly difficult to acquire the proper tools (machines, monitors, software, etc).

    Pros

    Balance for life and work. Have a lot of interesting projects. Opportunity to travel to beautiful cities around the world.

    Cons

    I don't see a huge negative point in this company. Sometimes some people are hard to deal and it's not related to the company for sure. These people are everywhere and we all have experience dealing with them .

    Advice to Management

    Find the people that are hard to deal in their team and warn them for their behavior. I'm sure they are doing it right now but it could be improved

    Pros

    Still a great company to work for. Beautiful campus, great people, lots of opportunity for growth. Flexible scheduling is a huge plus, especially for those with a family, and I enjoy getting to work with colleagues from around the world.

    Cons

    This is not the same company I knew and loved. While still a great place to work, the trajectory is worrisome. The salaries are not competitive and there is a lack of incentive for collaboration across teams. We used to have an amazing culture that valued community work and the environment but those programs are sloy fading into the background.

    Advice to Management

    Be aligned. Don't make your people fight battles because as leaders consensus cannot be achieved. Have the tough conversations and relay a buzzword free, down to earth vision for what growth and success really looks like. This will save time, money and boost morale. Be sincere. Act out the values you placed on the walls.

    Pros

    The pay is good, hours you work on projects are flexible, and great people to work with! The major bonus of traveling the world and complete projects is top notch experience!

    Cons

    Often there are long hours to work but is made up for with the flexible hours. Not many other cons to discuss besides the long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving projects forward and finding the industry leading employees. Encourage more meetings to listen closely to the team members, many good ideas are potentially getting looked over.
