Pros

Nice campus and cafeteria. Friendly, competent and helpful co-workers. Able to work from home.

Cons

Revolving-door management. Overconfident, overcontrolling, clueless, grandiose and inscrutable in varying proportions. Mindless, unrealistic attempts to reduce knowledge-dependent, ever-changing tasks to checklists for offshore employees without the relevant background. This is a result of the belief that employees are completely interchangable, which derives from both wishful thinking and the desire to use cheap offshore labor. Customer-facing policies in disarray, creating needless thrash and knee-jerk reaction. Way too many useless meetings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try getting lower-level managers who know something about what they are managing, or at least ones willing and able to learn. Try to avoid being given a snow job, unless you are engaged in doing same to your superiors.

    Pros

    Environmentally conscious. Sabre has many company sponsored community events and subsidizes your health benefits if you participate in education/exercise program. There is also plenty of opportunity to change jobs and stay with the same company.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move up unless your leadership leaves or retires. You are not able to advance career by switching jobs very easily. Those are mostly lateral moves.

    Pros

    One of the best things about this company is when you are not on the road traveling you can work from home quite a bit, which kind of makes up for being away up to 75% of the time, depending on your department. The salary is also pretty good, a little above average for the DFW metro area. Its a pretty casual place and everyone is very friendly. They have good worklife programs as well.

    Cons

    Sometimes you are on the road for a project and you have a certain day that was planned to come home and all of a sudden they want you to extend by a week or so, and if you had something planned it's a catch 22. There is also very little direction as far as who does what for projects and applications. You email one person and they cc another person who cc's yet another person and pretty soon it's taken 48 hours to just find an answer to a simple question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more clear direction on project flow. A lot of money is wasted for implementations, testing and planning due to this.
