    Pros

    For a long time stable place to work in. Very good work/life balance with all the benefits of remote work.

    Cons

    Currently with all changes decisions are taken a away from the places they should be taken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more responsibility to lower level of management and reduce the matrix organisation. Better utilize multiple development centers by concentrating development teams in only one location .

    Pros

    People are wonderful, good benefits

    Cons

    Management tends to be a bit stuck in the '90s. Layoffs are terrifying. things go slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be less structured. Have the ability for WFH. Offer more benefits to attract a younger employer base.

    Pros

    Cool industry (travel), fun & smart colleagues. Plenty of HR and training available. Strong healthy benefits and plenty of travel opportunities if you are on the business side.

    Cons

    Large organization leads to processes, complexity. Can be top-heavy at times... especially post-IPO.

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

    Pros

    The only two pro's for me are the paycheck and due to my seniority my vacation time.

    Cons

    My manager is only interested in pleasing his boss, if we don't meet his bosses standards then we don't meet his. And since Sabre has laid off a lot of people worldwide in the past year he uses that to try to get us to work. I also was never allowed to get training in the programming skills that I was hired to do and since then I have been unable to get training in the skills that I am expected to use daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers that care about their employees and stop worrying about hiring the best people in the business and worry about empowering the people that already work there.

    Pros

    Location is great for me. Pay is decent. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    It's full of cliques. Very little to nothing is based on merit but instead on how you can market yourself. Most employees who are interested in just doing good work will be disappointed by the constant nonsense and drama.
    Amateurs and minor intellects will be your superiors and your opinion will be unwelcome.
    Groupthink is the the only acceptable opinion. Tolerance is high, as high as long as you agree with the group and their cult leaders.
    Many going along to get along. The truly gifted people have already left.

    Former Employee - Sabresonic Product Analyst in Montevideo (Uruguay)
    Former Employee - Sabresonic Product Analyst in Montevideo (Uruguay)

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

    Pros

    - Wages (USD currency in Uruguay)
    - Flexibility in work hours
    - Benefits related to health-care
    - Easy job, if you're willing to get past selfish workmates who don't want to teach you, then you can get some great experience.

    Cons

    - No work/life balance
    - Awful and unprofessional management
    - Management works on a friendship basis, if they like you you'd get the chance to grow, otherwise they hinder your growth. ZERO LEADERSHIP skills or people skills.
    - Overall I wouldn't work here unless I really needed to save money or gain experience to get a better job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The whole management team needs to get fired at the SabreSonic office in India and Montevideo. They need to restructure and hire new and better managers, team leads and supervisors. Once they have a new management, they have to establish clear and reasonable goals, motivate their employees. They need to establish a better office culture with respect and ethical behaviour (I had coworkers who dated each other, fought and broke the Sabre owned laptops; smoked marihuana in office premises, etc).
