    Don't seek to cut so deep on staff, ultimately this hurts the business.

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, nice WFH policy, no micromanagement, cafeteria is top notch, awesome volunteer opportunities and many lunch and learn events during work hours.

    Cons

    Lots of cliques, segregated teams, no upward mobility-even though they say there is.,not good for the younger crowd, horribly dated products, no budget for anything, only cares about the bottom line. Huge layoffs in recent years, never know if you are going to be next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something, ANYTHING to keep your talent.

    Current Employee - Product Manager in Southlake, TX
    Current Employee - Product Manager in Southlake, TX

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

    Pros

    Strong financial position, fun market problems with lots of technical and business opportunities, a vibrant culture, smart people. Also there is a large effort to internationalize the company and a lot of jobs are being moved overseas. The net results is US people finding new jobs and hiring very smart people in Krakow and Uruguay. SHS business unit is exploding with opportunities.

    Cons

    for the GDS side of the business, there may be industry challenges. This is being well managed, but downsizing may continue. Too many layers of management that slow things down. Tends to be an up or out company, with lots of youth and few people over 40.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delayer the company, thus empowering the managers and works more to move forward and innovate.

    Current Employee - Software Development Manager in Southlake, TX

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

    Pros

    The people is the main reason that makes this place and why I have remained so many years. The Work From Home can be a benefit assuming you have a Manager that allows it.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Promotions are based on how well you can promote yourself via a PowerPoint and networking and stop being about your actual accomplishments. Company feels that more Project Managers is what we need when we need people that do actual real work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people that can help getting the work done and not those who only track and report. The backbone of the company is feed up and your are losing good people everyday.

    I have been working at Sabre full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are good, 401K is good, PTO better than most. Lots of opportunities to work with global customers and some interesting new products.

    Cons

    Some projects can be very stressful, the product lifecycle doesn't seem to be incorporated into delivery very well, focus on completing the product rather than what needs to be done to actually deliver it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more holistic view of the company so that all the departments are on the same page.

    Promote meritocracy.
    Leverage experience of people who have been there for a while rather than shooing them aside.
