Former Employee - Lead Software Developer in Southlake, TX (US)

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

Pros

Great benefits and pay. Some new technology opportunities, but guarded.

Cons

They outsource IT management to places like Poland, so you may report to someone overseas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be much more progressive and open-minded with respect to technologies. Not every initiative needs to be governed by big IT processes.

    Pros

    They might let you work from home sometimes
    Lot's of events if you are in Southlake.

    Cons

    Really not the best place for technically minded people. The business side likes to use lot of buzzwords and have a general overview that developers are a commodity. There is also a lot technical people in charge from when Mainframes ruled the earth.

    This results in lots of offshoring and badly designed systems. If you really like working on systems like it still the late 80's then you will love this place.

    It actually quite shocking how little people in key positions know. One positive thing is missing release dates are the norm so you really don't have to work very hard.

    Sabre actually works like a bunch of very small businesses this results in lots of duplication and products looking like they came from two different companies.

    Also sometimes who you report too just simply do not make sense like US developers having offshore developers as managers.

    Requirements from marketing are a joke and change on a daily basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire an outside firm to go in and cut the dead weight and leave nothing sacred. Also remember you get what you pay you best developers are leaving faster then you can hire them.
