    Cons

    Dont ever apply here its a sinking ship. They dont understand how to make money, Technology is unbelievable old. firing happens every other month zero stability its unbelievable.

    Just sell the company to a competitor to give some value to current shareholders. The whole application needs to be rebuilt.

    Pros

    Very little now with the new CEO's cost-cutting approach.

    Cons

    Sr. Leadership has turned over significantly and fails to understand the business elements which lead to success. The new CEO knows how manage costs, but doesn't understand what it takes to make awesome technology. Decisions are often made in silos as few internal relationships exists. It's every man for himself mentality. The best people have already left or are leaving what was once a great company.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is okay I suppose.

    Cons

    Bad politics throughout the organization and very slow decision making, too many processes and no trust in decision making ability of the people who know what needs to be done.

    Other than hospitality business the technology is a mess and outdated with no signs of real investment needed (just cuts and more cuts).

    The old saying "The left hand doesnt know what the right hand is doing" doesn't go far enough.

    People say the GDS is a dinosaur or legacy same story with much of the old staff that have held on to jobs due to alliances rather than be good at their job. Overloaded with debt and no prospects.

    I would give Sabre a 80% chance of dying a slow and painful death.

    Lack of transparency and CYA culture means information and ideas get stuck because middle management are protecting themselves.

    Advice to Management

    IPO or sell hospitality and use that money to invest and build a new GDS that future proofs against changing booking behaviors and becomes what a true travel platform. Not just air focused.

    Pros

    The facility is awesome.

    Cons

    They treat their employees like disposable resources. They layoff all the time. The upper-management does not know what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the layoffs! You can’t get the company moving in the right direction. Once AA leaves Sabre you’re screwed.
