    Recent layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Need less managers. Each Manager should have at least 10 reporting team members. There are lot of managers per each project, who don't have minimum 5 reporting people (Some has just 1 or 2).

    Pros

    Great collaborative environment. Very impressive team with incredible energy. New CEO has initiated much-needed upgrades across much of the senior management team, which is bringing strategic focus, operational rigor and great optimism for continued growth and success. Sabre provides mission-critical support to customers in the airline, travel and hotel industries. This creates exciting job opportunities across the board, especially in product development, marketing and sales roles, but many of the corporate function jobs are very engaged with customers as well.

    Cons

    Need more and better internal communications.

    Advice to Management

    Current changes are very welcomed.

    Management tends to be a bit stuck in the '90s. Layoffs are terrifying. things go slow.

    Advice to Management

    Be less structured. Have the ability for WFH. Offer more benefits to attract a younger employer base.

    I have been working at Sabre full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In the past couple of years since I've joined, the company has made big changes in executive leadership (new CEO and new CTO). In that time, Sabre has also made big changes to the business (going public, moving Travelocity to Expedia's platform, attempting to sell lastminute.com). Internally, we are pushing to change the culture to be "one Sabre" and to drive innovation. Common topics: creating big data products, shifting to cloud architectures, focusing on world class user experiences. As a software developer, it feels pretty positive. You are definitely rewarded for pushing your product forward.

    Cons

    Culturally, there seems to be a lot of apathy. Technology seems to be about 5-10 years behind the best tech companies. For example, we're just now starting to investigate cloud architecture. If you're into mainstream technologies from 5 years ago, you're considered leading edge rebels.

    Advice to Management

    I love the new direction the company is going. Focusing on using modern technologies and valuing premium user experiences are great strategies for creating customer value.
