    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.

    Pros

    the people you work with make it a great environment. Company values overall are good. Internal training available and college reimbursement.

    Cons

    a lot of leadership changes in the past year. having a lot of seniority is no longer valued as experience but a burden to the company. compensation is limited.

    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor
    Former Contractor - Anonymous Contractor

    I worked at Sabre as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work from home which they have now lessened. Nice Office. If you want a job that pays ok and you only want to work 6mos to a few years, go for it.

    Cons

    Upper Management and VP's are not employee focused unless the work is slow and the first thing they do is layoff people. They layoff the great managers and keep the ones that lie to their employees and management. Layoffs are constant. VP's are ego driven and not employee driven. I would suggest if you need a full time career, look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of laying off, give the employees a chance to take extra vacations or look elsewhere for cuts. Layoffs half of the VP's. Some have no idea what the company is about or what it is trying to achieve.

    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.
