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.

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

    I have been working at Sabre full-time for 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.

    I worked at Sabre full-time for 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.
