Hospitality Company with bold intentions

Regional Sales Manager LAD (Current Employee)
Bogotá, Bogota (Colombia)

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

ProsCompany's background and expertise creates cutting edge products and services with constant consultative approach to sales, support and product develpment (client centric work flow)

ConsUS centric entity with little to no customization.adaptation for emerging markets such as Latin America and APAC, leaving aside a strong source of revenue income. The organization has grown too much and therefore lost the ability to react fast to market changers

its all about the sale

Contributor Business Analyst (Current Employee)
Southlake, TX (US)

I have been working at Sabre full-time for more than a year

ProsCampus is nice and in a great location, pretty flexible work environment- they let most teams work from home around once a week, or when kids school breaks are happening.

Consa lot of talk about how important the employees are, but its all talk. treatment of resources is not what I was expecting. middle management is highly over promoted and majority of them have no idea how to provide guidance to their direct reports. And whats worse is they just keep getting promoted up, instead of execs taking time to actually look outside the company for someone with the adequate skill set. Pay is decent, but raises are only possible if you make a department move! Just because you have a good year or get a title promotion doesn't mean you should expect a monetary reward...which sucks!!

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease don't take a management position unless you are committed to supporting your team! Engagement and morale are very low right now and mismanaging your teams' engagement is not going to help.

Stressful but Supportive Culture

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Sabre full-time for more than a year

ProsFlexible work from home policy, decent vacation time (3.5 weeks), managers generally support my growth in the company, coworkers support each other

Consstressful day-to-day, little training, so much to do all the time and it is expected to work late and weekends, culture of just putting your head down and working, lack of organization coming from upper level management, lack of resources, lower salary than standard

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sr. Project Manager

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
Southlake, TX (US)

I have been working at Sabre full-time for more than 10 years

Pros- Collaborative team environment
- Nice "green" campus - cafeteria, coffee shop, ATM, onsite small gym
- Many community volunteer opportunities

Cons- Negotiate salary wisely - raises are few and small
- Numerous layoffs through the years
- Deliveries are committed to customers without reviewing commitments with delivery teams, thus many long hours for the development teams, project after project

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Enjoyed customers and co-workers, but dissatisfied with upper management and disrespect for employees.

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)
Southlake, TX (US)

I worked at Sabre full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI have visited many countries on business and am grateful for the opportunities. They have good benefits.

ConsThe work-life balance is awful! Management expects you to be available to work anytime you're needed. No compensation for working weekends/evenings so traveling over multiple weekends. Management is not supportive of their employees. There is little to no positive feedback given.

Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your employees and support them in their growth in the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
