    Pros

    Challenging projects, flexible work arrangements, fast moving pace. Some good leaders in the pack. These bright points gives you some hope for the future.

    Cons

    Regular layoffs, aggressive work environment, tolerates bad behavior when it comes from senior leaders. This is causing a general uneasiness under employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start cleaning from the top when laying off. Hold senior leaders accountable. Change the cut throat environment.

    I worked at Sabre full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lot of free time and you can manage your work time freely, you'll be able to visit the local airport dispatching system and hangars every now and then.
    Nice atmosphere and colleages.

    Cons

    Uses mostly outdated tools and software (VisualStudio 6.0 in 2015, with empty promises of switching away from it) and reimplements standards as in-house library, with the results you may expect... and now who wrote them either left or is a manager or an architect

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Priorities are inverted, prefer to make a good product and who's making it happy with what are they doing than just assigning task to please upper management layers, or people won't stop leaving.

    Pros

    Transparent management, open door culture, excellent domain experience, opportunities for job rotation. Sabre invests in its people, has a generous PTO policy and flexible working hours

    Cons

    For those who are coming from a non travel background, learning the domain can involve a fairly steep learning curve.

    Pros

    Provides an opportunity for creativity and innovation, in one of the most exciting industries - Travel. Offers lots of opportunity to experience different facets of the business.

    Cons

    The larger the organization the harder it can be to deliver unique value to customers while also taking care of one's employees. Sabre really strives to do both.

    I worked at Sabre full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible workplace, had a 'human touch' to all that they did and it was a great place to work. I left to take a higher paying job but it is no where near as enjoyable.

    Cons

    Sometimes the lines of authority were blurred and poorly thought through decisions were made. Salaries were not as strong as surrounding area companies and quite an attrition rate owing to money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be tougher at the top and stop the renegade decision making by various managers / directors / VP's that cost the company $000,000. Enforce policy, process, procedure and accountability.
