I have been working at Sabre full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Once you get in it's almost impossible to get out. People stay with this company for 10, 15, 20, even 30+ years. It has been very stable environment. The work conditions are good and people are knowledgeable and professional. Good work/life balance

Cons

Hard to advance a career. Not many opportunities to get promoted.

    Pros

    big enough to do BIG stuff
    small enough to see your fingerprint on BIG stuff
    Great CEO
    Bright minds everywhere
    very attuned to community and customers

    Cons

    complex industry drives complex solutions
    Matrix organization chart is often difficult to discern
    Roles and responsibilities are often ambiguous

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to call the "tie" and set the course
    Appreciate desire to play in multiple segments -- but the channel conflicts around every decision causes watered down position -- would love to be for one customer groups and go all in!

    Current Employee - Lead Business Analyst in Southlake, TX

    I have been working at Sabre full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits; nice campus although somewhat remote and can only get to it by car. Great cafeteria at Sabre HDQ in Southlake; lots of employee events although everyone's working overtime so hard to find time to take advantage of them. Good corporate citizen and our CEO is highly involved in representing and promoting the travel industry.

    Cons

    Not very good work life balance; overtime is a regular thing. They seem to hire people into positions who don't necessarily have the right background just to get a body in there. There alots of worldwide opportunities in a big company like Sabre; more senior employees seem to have more opportunity to work remotely from locations outside of the main Sabre offices; new employees are expected to work at the main office. There seem to be alot of overlapping responsibilities and duplication of effort - Sabre needs to get much better at it's processes and job roles and streamline their business which they have put some new things in place and are working on. Too many chiefs and project managers and not enough people to do the actual work.
