    Pros

    The benefits are interesting, although the compensation could be higher

    Cons

    The office is located in Zonamerica, plus a nine hour shift. You end up spending about 11 to 12 hours out working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shorter shifts
    More competitive salaries

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

    Pros

    Great products, great work atmosphere, mostly well-managed, clean and orderly work environment, salaries a bit above the average in this area (Montevideo UY), very positive and friendly workforce, good training programs, wonderful place to learn and acquire new skills. Sabre is still one of the best employers in the area, and working at Sabre is great for adding to the CV.

    Cons

    Horrible location very far from where most educated middle-class people in the city live (Pocitos, Parque Rodó, etc.), far from the Centre, far from the University. There are major errors in communication with employees at critical times, failure to understand the local culture. Failure to make simple gestures to employees, like organizing transportation on May 1 and during bus strikes when people are worried about getting home from work and there are no or few buses.

    Our culture is more friendly and polite than American culture in general and not openly critical, but this doesn't mean that people are satisfied with their situation. Many very bright and capable people left the company when a Sabre customer opened a call centre in a more central location. Many of those people were furious with Sabre for delaying an increase in salary while they negotiated with the wage council. Sabre lost many excellent employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize that the situation in the country has changed over the years, that pay levels in other companies are closer to Sabre. Recognize that it is an insult to pay new employees more than older ones, and that even though employees may not openly say what they are unhappy about, they still may be unhappy. Recognize that moving employees from one location to another and causing them to lose an extra two hours a day of personal time on a bus, or have to pay parking at the new building after buying a house near the other facility is cruel and not necessary. Recognize that hundreds of students sacrifice their university studies to work at Sabre, and that the location is so far from the university that it is almost impossible to work and study at the same time.
