    I have been working at Sabre full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of people have been at Sabre a long time and really care about the company

    Cons

    Excessive office politics, made worse by the way HR deals with issues (or fails to, even when they are informed), with promotions and raises based on politics rather than merit or performance history

    I worked at Sabre full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Frequent free lunches, Occasional free dinners, Opportunity to learn new skills

    Cons

    Even before the COVID19 disaster, Sabre had a rich history of regular layoffs. What I’m describing is not “trimming the fat”. Rather, top performers get laid off to meet budget requirements. Keep reading reviews on this site and others – Sabre has consistently laid off employees for years and years. What’s the impact to the company? They completely fail to acknowledge those still employed after a round of layoffs are affected as well. Employees have to do the same work with fewer people. Their friends are suddenly unemployed. SME’s are no longer around – products suffer. Tribal knowledge is king at Sabre; it's used to leverage continued employment. Sabre has publicly claimed their commitment to people and culture, but their actions don’t match their words. Even the HR group is a revolving door. I’ll bet the average tenure of the HR group is less than 3 years employed by Sabre. If you want to wake up without a job one day unexpectedly, Sabre is right for you.

    I worked at Sabre full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some of the Old timers who knew the in and outs of the software and Industry took early outs and that PRO is now edging toward a big negative. A few good Managers and leaders left but who knows for how long they will hang around. Customers once depended on calling Sabre and eventually finding somebody that knew how to manage to deal with a new wrinkle in the biz flow. These items were once PRO's and Plus's for Sabre and Customers but will be a rough ride for all over the next few years.

    Cons

    Due to Layoff culture right now, your remaining on board requires being buddies with someone in the Mgmt chain that is making the Stay or Go decisions.
