    I worked at Sabre full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and beautiful area in natural setting. Great cafeteria with friendly workers. Job is manageable and easy enough with experience.

    Cons

    Team very negative and usually in a general bad mood. They are more concerned with heir own development and growth/advancement than their own team. They are quick to point out errors but rarely have a kind word of encouragement for all the great things you get done.

    Advice to Management

    Just because your a subject matter expert does not make you better than everyone nor give you right to talk down and be ugly to newer employees.

    Pros

    Work is interesting and fast paced

    Cons

    Salaries are all over the place with many inequities, especially, it appears for women
    People routinely brought in at higher level due to fact they worked at a top firm, but they have no leadership capabilities
    In many areas organizational structure does not make sense
    Very political environment

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at compensation and your leaders

    Pros

    There only advantage is that you're getting paid for sitting simply. You get time to study a lot. Few managers are good, you can develop good contacts

    Cons

    You'll get paid for doing really simple work. You'll not get to learn anything. You can learn how not to write code.

    Pros

    Sabre name recognition might land you a better position elsewhere.

    Cons

    Expect 10 hours/day, 6 days/week, and this is the norm. Week after week, after month after month.
    Don't bother complaining, it comes from the top.
    They can get away with this because of cheap body shops in India, and H1 applicants here.

    Advice to Management

    How long will you tolerate Agile = Fragile?

    Pros

    Good benefits.
    Was part of a great team that made it fun and enjoyable.
    Product team and development worked very well together before all the key resources left.
    Dedicated team members.

    Cons

    Poor executive leadership in dealing with transformation. Turned the company to a profit, but lost all the knowledge and skill set in the wake. Great ideas that are poorly executed because not staffed to succeed.
    Company does not know how to manage new and leading products. Killed Travelocity, Getthere, Meetings, and anything else consumer facing.
    Give them time and they will mismanage Tripcase.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better. Keep key resources. Staff for success with Transformation. Figure out why you have lost all your good VPs.

    Pros

    Interesting projects, comparable benefits, work from home policies. If you are lucky to have a good manager, it is comfortable. They always have busy schedules. But a good manager know how to make plans.

    Cons

    Too many politics from top to bottom. Nobody really do research or want to do technologies. Everybody wants to be PM.

    Advice to Management

    Be more organized, but not rigid. Be polite to technical people.
