Former Employee - Business Analyst  in  Dallas, TX
Former Employee - Business Analyst in Dallas, TX

I worked at Sabre full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

-Nice campus
-Decent compensation
-Interesting projects
-Nice cafeteria

Cons

-LOTS of old timers who are not going anywhere
-Annual layoffs (not sure if this is still happening)
-Not enough resources/enployees for work assigned (you will be robbing project Peter to pay project Paul)
-People who tend to be more sociable seem to move into management positions, but that is anywhere
-Campus is VERY far away from downtown Dallas or Ft Worth, or any interesting neighborhoods...I hope you can qualify for a $600k mortgage if you want to live close to work because that is what it will take in Sucklake

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sabre is not geographically situated well in the DFW area if you wish to attract creative or young professional types...think Plano or downtown Dallas.

    Pros

    Great health, 401K and vacation benefits. Very environmentally aware culture that takes being green and community service very seriously and truly makes an impact.

    Cons

    The innovation is gone and the funding for it has dried up. Other (non-GDS) companies are much better positioned to win in travel in the long run. The bureaucracy and politics and investment decisions have slowly driven all of the most talented employees away. That (bright employees) used to be Sabre's strength, but not anymore. I look at the VPs and SVPs running things now and am absolutely amazed by their lack of knowledge and incompetence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Two things: 1) Put your money where your mouth is and invest in the areas you say hold the highest potential growth (both from a personnel perspective and new products/acquisitions), and 2) take a close look at who is leading each business unit - if the results aren't there (strategic goals, financial goals, and employee engagement) then make a change. And don't just move them to another business unit as you have historically done.
