    Smart and friendly coworkers. Fair compensation. Company activities. You can make a career in Sabre.

    On call duties. If you live in Uruguay, is far from Montevideo, so you have to add 1 hour in the bus to the 8:45 daily hours.

    Management tends to be a bit stuck in the '90s. Layoffs are terrifying. things go slow.

    Be less structured. Have the ability for WFH. Offer more benefits to attract a younger employer base.

    Pros

    Cool industry (travel), fun & smart colleagues. Plenty of HR and training available. Strong healthy benefits and plenty of travel opportunities if you are on the business side.

    Large organization leads to processes, complexity. Can be top-heavy at times... especially post-IPO.

    Pros

    For a long time stable place to work in. Very good work/life balance with all the benefits of remote work.

    Cons

    Currently with all changes decisions are taken a away from the places they should be taken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more responsibility to lower level of management and reduce the matrix organisation. Better utilize multiple development centers by concentrating development teams in only one location .

    Pros

    Offers a decent work/life balance and initial compensation is acceptable. Campus is aesthetic and friendly.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy and politics run amok. Overzealous processes get in the way of delivering products timely -- simple changes take too long to implement. Compensation and training is stagnant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Touting ground-up change is one thing, doing it is another.
