    I worked at Sabre full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people, including your managers, your colleagues and those that work for you. Everyone works hard and is passionate, despite the constant rumors

    Cons

    Sabre cannot seem to get it right. They get into a periodic cycle of layoff/hire/layoff mode. We ramp up and down without a full understanding of the outside market. Revenue targets have been missed in 2016 and will be missed this year so they had to cut the full time employee population. In 2016, they got rid of most of the contractors but in January, since they did not have contractors to cut, many very good employees lost their jobs. The new CEO is gutting the employee base. I imagine there will be more hiring later this year and into 2018. Later, rinse, repeat.

    Advice to Management

    Sabre's reputation is at stake. They have great products. Sabre is losing their long time domain experts. New blood is not always the answer. It does not replace the deep knowledge. Try to get it right at the beginning so you don't have to be in the perceptual cycle.

    Pros

    Organizations available to employees for professional development and growth
    Work/life balance
    Flexibility and wfh, depending on the manager

    Cons

    Layoffs are becoming too common, with top talent being laid off due to issues with the bottom line
    The manager completely determines the experience at the company - plenty of bad managers get promoted

    Advice to Management

    There has been a lot of change over the last few years. The company needs a strategy and that direction needs to be communicated to employees. More transparency and investment in top talent to help with the depressed culture.
