    I worked at Sabre full-time

    Pros

    Good first job. Challenging projects at the entry level. A fine place to learn about workplace etiquette and how to be a successful team member. You will be challenged in your position and growth is inevitable. Remote work is an option. Teammates are great people.

    Cons

    Growth stalls at the mid level and challenges become reflective of a company that lacks discipline in its business. Actionable communication and growth shared across teams is limited, and the same problems occur time and again. Communication from the top seems low priority, and your role can feel isolated from any larger shared mission. Pay is about 25% below industry standard in my division.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new business practices and implement new workflows. Resolve unbalanced project hours and improve employee satisfaction. Take control of the business instead of allowing business to control the company. Be leaders and prioritize communication with the organization on a routine. Increase pay to industry standard.

    If you work on the right team, you can work from home as much as you want and have a flexible schedule for a good work/life balance

    Don't make so many management changes all at once.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with, gym, good medical benefits and challenging work. Training is available based on your department's budget.

    Cons

    Poor planning at the management level. Marketing over promises and as a consequence, IT under delivers due to unrealistic expectations. Still sticking to an old and outdated reservation system. They'll hire you for a few years and then lay you off.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of thinking about yourselves, think about treating your employees like people. You're so worried about the stakeholders that you forget who helps make the company successful, the employees. As a consequence, Sabre is #2 (used to be #1) in the travel business.

    I worked at Sabre full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Talented, hard-working people, good salary and benefits

    Cons

    Lack of vision, self-serving leadership, culture of "save yourself".

    Advice to Management

    When you're so disloyal to employees, how do you expect strong performance and innovation? It used to be a great company but Tom Klein was a terrible CEO, who brought in terrible leadership. You still need to get rid of a few more left-overs then create a robust, real vision for the company! Or just sell the thing and let everyone move on.

    Pros

    Company has been highly rated in several surveys.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Many of the conference calls meant to inform employees have no bearing on day to day rank and file employees.
