Sr. Principal Process Design Consultant (Former Employee) – Southlake, TX – July 11, 2017
Sabre allow me to be exposed and do process improvement work across many areas of the company including IT, product development and marketing. I also had many opportunities to interact with Sr. Management.
Favoritism is obvious when laying off/terminating, If you aren't social enough you'll be on the chopping block. Many Directors don't know the business, they are moved around between areas just because. There is a "layoff" every year since Management does not know what they are doing. This company is doomed once AA leaves them. There's no work for Airline after 2017 and it's dwindling. RUN AWAY to a company that appreciates their employees and can provide security.
The Management didn't have proper planning and they put all pressure on employees. They seemed to follow agile , but there no proper process in place. Even the Billing and the deadlines were not planned
I have watched Sabre go from being a division within American Airlines to becoming the company they are today. I have seen many many changes over the years. Some good and some not as good. However, they had always been really good to their employees. They provided me with the opportunity to work hard, earn a good living, and develop my career in a meaningful way. There were always opportunities for advancement and learning if you wanted to take advantage of it.

Sabre offers many benefits to employees like Skillsoft online training and 24x7 online books. In addition to online executive abstracts, workout facilities, paid volunteer days, etc. This is in addition to competitive pay and benefits (401k match), onsite health clinic, cafeteria, health rooms and onsite health screening.
This said, there is a culture change now that the company is public and there is a new CEO. I see more "bottom line" type decisions which are good for the company at the expense of benefits. (welcome to the real world).
Overall, I would recommend Sabre as a good place to work.
gym, onsite health clinic, online learning, paid volunteer days
Culture shift, recent layoffs, big company pains (not nimble)
