    Pros

    The airline industry is a fascinating place to be; exciting and always changing.

    Cons

    Some of the new execs are rigid in their work/life balance policies. Layoffs have started again. Not enough space in the offices, not enough parking. Airline knowledge is not valued like it used to be. Too much focus on marketing and less on product quality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to basics - recognize and reward talent that have stuck with the company through thick and thin and have the airline knowledge.

    Pros

    Challenging and interesting work, competitive pay and many good people striving to deliver a quality product.

    Cons

    Internal communications and coordination are sub-par. Short term make-the-sale priorities generate delivery backlog that continues to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell the products and functionality that the Company has versus selling promises that you will be challenged to meet. Extend the product portfolio where it makes sense for Sabre versus just because a customer has asked for it. Spend more time, effort and investment on more efficient and effective operations.

    Pros

    Remote work doing software development, the type of work I love to do.

    Cons

    Somewhat hostile environment. More interest in beating chests and proving you know something in place of building each other up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've made less money last year since being acquired by Sabre.

    Pros

    Great culture where true team work is at play between the worker bees.

    Cons

    Frequent shifts in upper management, thus many changes in direction. Numerous reductions in force have taken place over the last 10 years.

    Pros

    Flexible work from home options. Opportunities for career growth and movement within the company. Casual work environment. Very diverse since it is a global company.

    Cons

    Recent layoffs has everyone on edge as no one knows what to expect. The company direction isn't very clear. The overall company morale is currently low. It was much better in previous years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and honest with employees.

    Former Employee - Senior Release Manager in Southlake, TX

    I worked at Sabre full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people at Sabre are all very friendly and close. Many have worked their most of their life. The opportunity to work with people world wide was great and I will miss my team mates. I learned a great deal working globally and with their HP business partners. Because the company is global, there are opportunities to work from home.

    Cons

    Sabre is behind the times in technology and there is no consistency when you move from one team to another regarding processes and tools. The downside to working for Sabre is the instability of the company as they attempt to become more technologically modern.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide actual training to new employees; introduce team members and state their roles so new employees can find the help they need to be productive quickly. Be clear with your expectations and listen to your employees.

    Pros

    People are friendly and cooperative. You get the resources you need to do your job. It is easy to make cross functional alliances. Benefits seem better than average.

    Cons

    Management is frequently changing; corporate goals are always changing and unclear at best. Unprofitable business are retained i.e. Travelocity. The have layoffs across the company that make no sense and apparently aren’t well thought out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a CEO who knows what he or she is doing.

    Pros

    Large company with opportunity to grow and/or change career paths without losing work history. Great campus and has history of great culture.

    Cons

    Technology company that doesn't believe in using technology - tools are out dated, portfolio management system is ancient, SharePoint is installed but not managed or utilized

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving people around under newly named teams hasn't produced the change you were looking for because the wrong people are being kept in decision making roles.

    Pros

    Despite, what most would say, is broken company, the people who work here are awesome.

    Cons

    Sabre has a way of taking a job that seems like a standard IT job and changing what it should do so much that if you tried to get another job with the same title, you don't have the experience required
