Hospitality unit in rapid growth mode. Most work groups stretched to the max with heavy workloads.

I have been working at Sabre full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Company as a whole is good place to work. Products are cutting edge. Southlake campus is nice place to work. Work from home encouraged.

Cons

Hospitality unit is in constant flux with pettiness, backbiting, and internal arrogance. Last few years have seen multiple reorgs in this unit. Several Hospitality execs bring their egos to work each day. Noticeably there is talent leaving this group, or will soon. Work/life balance is just lip service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CEO Sam G. should ensure Sabre culture is realigned for this group.

    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

    The company does some great community and environmental outreach, and the industry is moderately interesting

    Cons

    Sabre acts more like an airline than a software company and wonders why they struggle to recruit and retain talent. They claim to want new ideas, but if you come in with new ideas, you will quickly get but on the "naughty list". Managers are too afraid to say no, which means you are constantly in firedrill mode, however, when the fire is out, you are still expected to meet all of the arbitrarily set deadlines from the work you dropped in order to put out the fire. People here routinely work 60+ hours/week, and instead of thanks for the hard work, they get told they aren't working enough. This place will very quickly suck the soul out of you. On top of this, you can't trust your coworkers. They will say one thing to your face and stab you in the back to your managers. Managers do not protect their employees, they take credit for their employees' wins and blame employees for losses. Run away, do not work here if you value your sanity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the airline mentality and learn how to value your employees. Be open to new ideas, and learn how to prioritize workloads. Just because you communicated something would be done by a certain date doesn't mean you have to stick to that date if other, more important, projects come up. Employees in AS are overworked and miserable, these kinds of employees will continue to decline in productivity unless something changes. The measure of a good employee should not be that he or she is in the office from 6am-8pm, it should be in the quality of work he or she produces.
