I have been working at Sabre full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good pay and benefits; nice campus although somewhat remote and can only get to it by car. Great cafeteria at Sabre HDQ in Southlake; lots of employee events although everyone's working overtime so hard to find time to take advantage of them. Good corporate citizen and our CEO is highly involved in representing and promoting the travel industry.

Cons

Not very good work life balance; overtime is a regular thing. They seem to hire people into positions who don't necessarily have the right background just to get a body in there. There alots of worldwide opportunities in a big company like Sabre; more senior employees seem to have more opportunity to work remotely from locations outside of the main Sabre offices; new employees are expected to work at the main office. There seem to be alot of overlapping responsibilities and duplication of effort - Sabre needs to get much better at it's processes and job roles and streamline their business which they have put some new things in place and are working on. Too many chiefs and project managers and not enough people to do the actual work.

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

    Pros

    Flexible working hours, working from home or remotely are all acceptable here. If you want to see the world, this is the place to do it, since Sabre has customers and offices in every region of the world.

    Cons

    In order to be paid market salary, it's often necessary to move around, including leaving the company and coming back. The hours are awful - we're expected to travel overseas, work 12 hour shifts onsite 7 days a week, with little or no compensation during implementations.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee survey continually says that we're underpaid, overworked, and generally unhappy, don't ask us to fix it. That's YOUR job!

    Be open to new ideas from employees
