    I have been working at Sabre full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Transparent management, open door culture, excellent domain experience, opportunities for job rotation. Sabre invests in its people, has a generous PTO policy and flexible working hours

    Cons

    For those who are coming from a non travel background, learning the domain can involve a fairly steep learning curve.

    Pros

    Flexible work timings & Work from home option

    Cons

    check thelayoff.com for sabre-holdings read the history of firing employees, also no ethics followed when firing employee they don't get chance to say Bye, even treated badly. (08-Jan-14) one of the mass layoff around 60 in a day.
    Manager driven culture no policies, favoritism.
    No Transparency or Openness , to many hidden parameters.
    Bangalore Center has created few custom designation and call them as desk title, and in letter they give previous title.
    every 3 years top mgmt changes and restructuring happens .....
    no even pay structure for same level.
    more manager per employee ratio

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider providing shares to all employees & not only for key people.
    allow 360 degree review for appraisal and not just accept what manager puts in the tool.
    no skip level meetings.

    I worked at Sabre full-time

    Pros

    Work on challenging business problems using some of the leading technologies in the market place.
    One of the market leaders in the space they operate; in the top 3 slots is most of the areas they compete in.
    Good work culture with work - life balance
    Open management style: leaders who have moved back from the US a big plus

    Cons

    Not as nimble in adopting change.
    Need to simplify their organization structure; not aligned with the areas they service resulting in too many unnecessary hurdles in getting work completed and delivered.
    As a a technology company, need to be more technology focussed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the organization structure on the lines of product / customer deliverables. Current structure m ore of a hurdle than a facilitator.

    Create technology evangelism in the company where employees are aware, try out and quickly adopt to new technologies.

    I worked at Sabre full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Dont know if this should be called a pro but work hours are really messed (called flexible working hours).
    One person comes at 8 AM other at 12 PM and other at 6 AM.

    Cons

    Outdated technologies, messed up work culture, unorganized work environment, absolutely no role for senior employees, layoffs (became worst from 2013 and is still going on), no future once you work in travel domain (not many companies to move to)
