I have been working at Sabre full-time for more than a year

ProsWork culture, the industry of work and the expertise of the company in aviation

ConsI think there are some inefficiencies on how a product is managed overall, this is natural and the firm is now evolving which is still good than a con. Documentation would help reduce a lot of these
