    Pros

    Fantastic people, managers, work environment, employee engagement, reputation, and overall strength. .

    Cons

    Due to the current fiscal environment, benefits have been cut drastically (including the cancellation of the Columbus day holiday). This has led to low morale among staff. Recent management changes and shakeups have raised questions about the future direction of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on what made Sabre great--Attracting the best people and empowering them to meet and exceed customer needs. Restore a climate of optimism, rather than pessimism about the future.

    Pros

    It provides a reasonable employment. It is not for highly educated or experienced people.

    Cons

    No promotions, no raise, no educational benefits.

    Advice to Management

    They can follow the model of best companies of united states for promotions, performance appraisal and benefits.

    Pros

    Sabre 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.

    Cons

    Not really any cons. Sequester caused some loss of benefits but that was really just the govt's fault.

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Limited 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 Management

    Develop stronger career growth plans for mid-level management and weed out poor managers.

    Commute and traffic to office is frustrating at times.

    SPMP is way too complicated, could streamline process better.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Better 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 Management

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