    Pros

    Good location, decent benefits, free lunch

    Cons

    - Incompetent executive team (particularly those who've been with the company for over 2 years) - Extremely toxic environment in the corporate office - Even though they claim to be a "talent management" company they don't know how to treat employees with respect and dignity (or simply don't care) - They dispose of good employees overnight for no apparent reason, so those who are not in the "inner circle" are constantly paranoid, thinking they'll be next.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect and dignity, especially if you claim to be a "talent management"company!

    The situation described above is inconsistent with other views reflected here and within the company, and I hope is an isolated experience. Have you discussed or raised this with the management team ... More

    Pros

    benefits are decent, vacation time is generous.

    Cons

    Ineffective management, few points of contact in company to answer your questions, offshore internal team are sluggish, little chance for promotion, company training via video modules, help documentation is unorganized, cheap labor is favored, client retention not a concern....i can go on and on. Beware, the company IT jobs are shipping overseas.

    Pros

    The culture has changed over the past 2 years. Internal groups are working together better to move the organization forward. Saba thinks outside the box with it's HR policies. Products are great. People are passionate and creative. Compensation is fair and many departments work remotely. Saba's tools enable employees to stay connected and work productively.

    Cons

    We still have room to improve, but I am confident we will get there. Saba is not for everyone. Pace is fast and workload is heavy. But seeing the end results makes it worth it.

    Pros

    The SEC issue has been resolved so I hope things will be better.

    Cons

    The SEC issue cost more in expenses than the companies expenses over a period of 2 years which may have been the reason for lack of employee manpower over the last 2+ years. This lack of proper staffing caused major issues within the company.

    Advice to Management

    If your own employee ratings are low then don't mention Glassdoor ratings in financial wires.

    No 401k match at the moment, but this could change quickly after restatement (targeted for q4 2014)

    The work life balance is incredible. The resources available to a sales person is second to none. They give you all the tools to succeed, great training, great positive energy. Phenomenal leadership! Even as a remote employee, I still feel part of my team. Compensation is great as are the benefits!

    Pros

    In my short tenure is seems that Saba leadership truly wants and tries to understand its employees, they possess a clear / concise strategic corporate vision and they provide me with the available tools and resources to get things done and plan for the future.

    Cons

    Id be nitpicking if I had any cons... still pretty new. Uhh, I hate traffic and I would like to work less for more pay,

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
