Pros

Great benefits and pay. Some new technology opportunities, but guarded.

Cons

They outsource IT management to places like Poland, so you may report to someone overseas.

Advice to Management

Be much more progressive and open-minded with respect to technologies. Not every initiative needs to be governed by big IT processes.

    Pros

    The company does some great community and environmental outreach, and the industry is moderately interesting

    Cons

    Sabre acts more like an airline than a software company and wonders why they struggle to recruit and retain talent. They claim to want new ideas, but if you come in with new ideas, you will quickly get but on the "naughty list". Managers are too afraid to say no, which means you are constantly in firedrill mode, however, when the fire is out, you are still expected to meet all of the arbitrarily set deadlines from the work you dropped in order to put out the fire. People here routinely work 60+ hours/week, and instead of thanks for the hard work, they get told they aren't working enough. This place will very quickly suck the soul out of you. On top of this, you can't trust your coworkers. They will say one thing to your face and stab you in the back to your managers. Managers do not protect their employees, they take credit for their employees' wins and blame employees for losses. Run away, do not work here if you value your sanity.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the airline mentality and learn how to value your employees. Be open to new ideas, and learn how to prioritize workloads. Just because you communicated something would be done by a certain date doesn't mean you have to stick to that date if other, more important, projects come up. Employees in AS are overworked and miserable, these kinds of employees will continue to decline in productivity unless something changes. The measure of a good employee should not be that he or she is in the office from 6am-8pm, it should be in the quality of work he or she produces.

    Pros

    Nice building, OK benefits, work is interesting

    Cons

    Excessive Overtime, high management turnover

    Advice to Management

    Hire some qualified experienced management who believe in supporting their employees, vs kids off the street who are looking to enhance their resume so they can land their next job/gig.
