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

    Pros

    Great people, smart, collaborative, successful business, supportive and positive culture, strong drive to succeed, win and grow the business. I felt my work was appreciated and valued, and felt I could make a real impact on the business.

    Cons

    Some controls are over-centralized at times , which can slow things down on occasion, and pay outside of the US can be 10 -20% below the local market norms for high quality finance professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the regional teams a bit more, but otherwise a very well run, excellent business.

    Pros

    Semi-flexible working arrangements means working from home is acceptable. Lots of travel involved to some really cool places (although recent cost cutting is slowing that down). Decent bonuses each year (usually between 5-10%). 5 weeks holiday in the UK is standard. Lower level bosses and directors are usually easy-going and understanding.

    Cons

    The workloads can really stretch you. The reward for completing work is more workload. There are people in the company who don't carry their weight, creating more work for everybody else and they aren't even disciplined. They are just left to themselves. The lay-offs affect the company globally meaning everybody has to suddenly do more than one or two positions at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Marketing department is a useless, expensive and elitist waste of time. They have most of the influence over product development but know nothing about what the customers are needing because they never see them. Something has to change.

    Pros

    the people you work with make it a great environment. Company values overall are good. Internal training available and college reimbursement.

    Cons

    a lot of leadership changes in the past year. having a lot of seniority is no longer valued as experience but a burden to the company. compensation is limited.

    requirment is not clear and they said java, c++, unix and oracle.. simply they gave 15 objective questions . But answers are not clear..

    Written test answers are not clear.. better to take face to face interview for senior associates.
