Company provides employment.

Cyber Security Engineer (Current Employee)

Cyber Security Engineer

Cyber Security Engineer (Current Employee)
Aberdeen, MD

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

ProsSabre is a good place to work. They have the small business feel but still a lot of the same benefits of working for a big company. As a govt contractor though the biggest thing is just making sure that they win the next contract.

ConsNot really any cons. Sequester caused some loss of benefits but that was really just the govt's fault.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good experience

Manager (Former Employee)
Warrington, PA

I worked at Sabre Systems full-time for less than a year

ProsGood work/life balance, obtainable expectations, good communication between employees at various offices, average health benefits, new headquarters in Warrington, PA as of 2011 in completely new building.

ConsLimited growth opportunities, lack of direction from specific managers, extremely large gap in salaries between Director and Manager level, headquarters are located in undesireable area.

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop stronger career growth plans for mid-level management and weed out poor managers.

This is a starter job...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Philadelphia, PA

I have been working at Sabre Systems

ProsTraining is ok.
Holiday parties are nice loaded with prizes (from the extra money they keep from contracts).
Benefits are ok.

ConsBetter communication between management and employees should be a priority.
Low compensation (government pays 100% for contractors, Sabre pays out less than 20%, and keeps 70+% profit).

Advice to Senior ManagementEnroll in management classes, and get in tune with the people are trying to tell you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Much better companies to work for

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Sabre Systems

ProsSome interesting contracts to work on

ConsNo communication from top management throughout the organization
Top management does not listen to their managers or staff
Opportunities are for the select few particularly in upper management

Advice to Senior ManagementGet management training and listen to what all staff are saying and not just the ones that tell you what you want to hear
Share the wealth with the staff that perform the contract work and who really make your profit possible.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
