    Pros

    They try VERY hard to give you the best internship experience. Very casual attire.

    Cons

    It's such a big company that sometimes they forget that you are an intern who is available to receive work. For the first 2 weeks, I've just been shadowing one of my co-worker the entire time. I didn't get a project until the third week of this internship and even then it wasn't the project I would expect to want to do but it was something that I can work on this summer and contribute to the team. My team was very busy that they didn't have time to teach me much.

    Advice to Management

    Plan out a project for interns before they come and assign an absolute mentor if the manager is going to be very busy.

    I worked at Sabre as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are some nice people here with good intentions. A handful of leadership execs understand current trends.

    Cons

    Good intentions are lost on lack or willingness to collaborate. Ego plays a huge part of the culture of accountability with no thought into what makes a good product. The concept of has a person completed a to-do checklist outweighs product value.

    Advice to Management

    Show some respect for employees and pay for quality over quantity because in the end you will end up with a better product.

    The management needs to figure out if its a travel company or software company.

    I worked at Sabre full-time

    Pros

    Really nice campus (including a gym and onsite clinic, excellent cafeteria), great benefits, fun company events, incredibly talented and good people.

    Cons

    Compensation is almost non-existent - always has been the case. Negotiate WELL during your hire as you may never see an increase. The culture has turned to fear since former CEO Sam G's departure - he is greatly missed. Prepare to work to an "outstanding" level just to get a successful annual rating in certain business divisions. New executive team has refreshing goals but not certain I see a positive future for what was an otherwise incredible company for which I was so proud & happy to be employed. Under cost-cutting measures and prior to IPO, it was interesting watching so many experienced folks get let go two years ago while at the same time, interns walked out the door often with prizes such as flat-screen TVs and computers.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive, not reactive. Keep the valuable talent you have and realize they are worth the price-tag (which is rarely that substantial). Management, quit nodding to unfeasible goals from the top and refusing to speak up to unrealistic visions with no budget to fulfill them. We ARE NOT a "tech company" - we are a "travel company". At least for several years to come.
