Not for Technical Minded People

Tech Lead (Current Employee)
Southlake, TX

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

ConsReally 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 Senior ManagementHire 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
