    I worked at Sabre full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible workplace, had a 'human touch' to all that they did and it was a great place to work. I left to take a higher paying job but it is no where near as enjoyable.

    Cons

    Sometimes the lines of authority were blurred and poorly thought through decisions were made. Salaries were not as strong as surrounding area companies and quite an attrition rate owing to money.

    Advice to Management

    Be tougher at the top and stop the renegade decision making by various managers / directors / VP's that cost the company $000,000. Enforce policy, process, procedure and accountability.

    Pros

    Provides an opportunity for creativity and innovation, in one of the most exciting industries - Travel. Offers lots of opportunity to experience different facets of the business.

    Cons

    The larger the organization the harder it can be to deliver unique value to customers while also taking care of one's employees. Sabre really strives to do both.

    I have been working at Sabre full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Positive environment, fair compensation plan, on-site doctor's office, on-site cafeteria, on-site gym, beautiful campus, covered parking, flexible schedule, work from home regularly, room for both upward and lateral job movement to prevent burn out

    Cons

    Location is not central to most people. Upper executives are somewhat disconnected from some of the more modern groups. Employment structure inside groups is rather flat limiting promotion opportunities without changing groups.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on employee recognition and make sure that the compensation plans increase as experience is gained. This will prevent people from leaving for other companies.
