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

    Pros

    Sabre has a great internal culture that fosters strong working relationships and teamwork. Due to Sabre's large business processes/structure and small business atmosphere, there's a genuine "family" culture. They provide external training that is deemed pertinent to your position and will benefit your career.

    Cons

    Management is difficult to communicate with and goals/objectives are not established at the onset of employment.

    Salaries are below average and informal training and mentorship is sparse.

    Advice to Management

    Defined career & growth paths and competitive salaries need to be established to help retain talent. Added responsibilities outside of the initial scope of a position should be met with comparable compensation.

    Great people to work with, good benefits

    Pros

    Leadership is very aware of their people and don't treat people like numbers. Like most companies primarily in the federal contracting arena there are cost pressures being forced by the government but the company has always been very transparent about it and has gone out of their way to make accommodations for individual employees when warranted. Quite a diverse workforce as well. Customer and employee interactions are very open and transparent and people really do have their customer's bests interest in mind. I have never felt pressure to cut any corner or sacrifice quality for the sake of the bottom line. Very accessible management that will always listen to an issue or opportunity. Not every company has the resources to take action but I've never had a problem getting my voice heard or generating interest in something new. Wish I could make a 4 1/2 star rating because the company is great but there are still a few areas for improvement.

    Cons

    Not as many opportunities to push new technologies as I'd like, but that is always a challenge due to the the nature of federal contracting. The communication channels between people working in the same disciplines is mostly left up to employees to initiate (which some people like) but they don't have forums or birds-of-a-feather type initiatives to encourage collaboration between groups.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more tools and opportunities that encourage collaboration within disciplines as well as across the workforce. Adopt new technologies faster and offer more social opportunities that are open to all employees.

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, Pleasant CEO, Nice social parties, good benefits, nice size company, funded contracts, prestigious office, supportive staff and human resources.

    Cons

    This company is fine if you are happy in the job you were hired to fill. However, if there are problems between you and the customer, the company does little to resolve them. They make no effort to relocate unsuccessful placements or enhance a person's occupational opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees happy. Move them around if they get stale.

    I worked at Sabre Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great salary, which I think is primarily due to most of their employees working onsite, so they have very low overheads at their corporate offices.

    Cons

    Since 80-90% of their employment opps are based on contracts, your job will likely be over when the contract is over.
