    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.

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

    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

    Opportunity to work remote, work with people of different seniorities, promotions from within

    Cons

    High turnover makes one question the quality of leadership. I have not seen many opportunities for career growth -- learning opportunities seem to plateau.

    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.

    I worked at Sabre full-time

    Pros

    initially was allowed to work remotely from home

    Cons

    change in management changed the way people were allowed to work remotely
    also, after training a member in Customer Care Department, they promoted them, but not within the same department, so all that knowledge was "lost"

    Advice to Management

    sometimes its necessary to get a glimpse of the granular
