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

    Pros

    New CEO is action-oriented and ensuring that his direct staff are focused and committed to making the company strong for long-term. Annual raises, tons of company-sponsored events, commitment to communications all are driving toward a focus on employee satisfaction in addition to strong technical infrastructure and driving change. Believe in this company.

    Cons

    Last several years has impacted morale and there is a lack of trust.

    Advice to Management

    Really get into the managers and below -- stop focusing all of the $$ on retention bonuses for executives and instead use that money to show you really believe in the talent - let them go to conferences, allow them to do training. That is money well spent rather than the millions being spent to keep executives around.

    Pros

    great people to work with

    Cons

    constant fear of lay offs. long working hours between few time zones. Conference calls at crazy 6:00am to 11:00pm due to offices located in India and Asia. Work from home used to be a norm but it is not anymore. The employment is uncertain, people are tired of constant organizational changes, new business models and new upper management that make more that some departments. People really don't like their CEO and have no faith in top management.

    Advice to Management

    you can only go for so long with "we are on the same boat" speeches. Lead by example. This company used to have great corporate culture but it is all gone today.

    I worked at Sabre full-time

    Pros

    Great culture and lots of employee activities. Very big on green initiatives. The cafeteria has excellent and healthy options and all taste great. Everyone has laptops and they are very flexible with work from home options. On site health clinic is very convenient.

    Cons

    There are way too many VP's, SVP's and EVP's in the company, however leadership and morale have been poor since this past summer's layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Trim at the executive levels to save money. Also, schedule less meetings and have more dialogue via e-mail or chats. On any given day, executives can be in meetings for all 8 hours, when most discussion can be done in e-mail, and no actual work gets done.

    Pros

    Very good industry standing and highly efficient business model - very well set up for future.

    Cons

    Challenges with senior and mid-level leadership causing challenges in various walks of the business.

    Advice to Management

    Need to shed away nepotism and favorism , take some risks and shift from thinkers to doers and encourage young talent. Also need to engage remote offices.

    Pros

    Many people are good people with much experience and industry knowledge . Many of these people have moved into their positions thru on the job training and experience.

    Cons

    Too many layoffs and the stress and worry resulting from that .... also you do not get time or training to learn new technology and tools ... so when you get laidoff your skills are out of date !

    Advice to Management

    Keep your people up to date with training in the latest tools

    Pros

    Interesting and fun work. Lots of travel. Experience many cultures.

    Cons

    Very low morale overall. Not people oriented. Especially not empowering to women. Very few women in leadership positions. Dishonest leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in retaining good employees. Don’t wait until someone puts in notice to tell them they are valuable.

    Pros

    There is nothing good about this place anymore.

    Cons

    No more working from home, we've been told we need to come in, if we are sick, have a sick child, etc. This is not the Sabre I signed on to. Directors and Managers are micromanaging us to death now and this is just horrible. This is not a 12.00 an hour call center job. Ridiculous. I hope they enjoy passing the flu around this winter and god forbid there be an ice storm.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take away things from an already stressed out workforce.

    Pros

    Those in the same position are supportive and willing to help. Good benefits and 401k match.

    Cons

    You never know when the next round of layoffs will be.

    Advice to Management

    There doesn't seem to be much logic or clarity around those effected by the constant layoffs. Successful people are let go, then that same position is posted for hire a month later.

    Pros

    Hopefully in 5 years each product will have a true path and vision. The people are great but left without processes and true training or educational resources. There are literally none on the Hospitality side.

    Cons

    Leadership has changed so many times in 18 months that the products path and vision change therefore confusing the market.

    Advice to Management

    Finish your gutting of leadership before you market a product because the vision of each changes by quarter leaving the market confused.
