    Experience

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsActive software development company. Develops some leading edge products; allows employees a certain amount of freedom to be creative in the development process. Military-friendly. Took good care of me when I was mobilized and deployed.

    ConsVery political and bureaucratic. Upper Mgmt focuses on the bottom line and not the individuals associated with that bottom line. Middle mgmt seems to be in tune with the workers, but upper mgmt completely out of touch with what it takes to deliver a product.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter understanding of what is involved in delivering products to the customer would serve the company well.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Someone whos been there

    Spoc (Former Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsPerhaps change has crept in to their managemernt and perhaps they have managed to raise the level they treat those who are genuinely desiring to facilitate change. I know they have moved locations and are still in business.

    ConsA lack of insitefull leadership left over from the American Airlines era. No perspective of looking at how far more successfull compaive good service to the customernies do it. No desire to facilitate posotive change. Unable to understand the customer and thus g

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone given because none was ever followed in the past. Of the companies I have worked for, the leadership at SABRE the management was the least able to keep up with current practices and understand and cater to the needs of it's customers, with no desire to change that.

    Not a place for TPF advancement

    Senior Programmer - TPF (Current Employee) Tulsa, OK

    ProsSabre is a good place for people on the move. It can provide opportunities for 5 to 10 years of growth.

    ConsSabre is not a place for a lifetime career since it as the tendency to keep one in a niche and not provide for lateral movement between skill sets or business units.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to break out of the habit of locking in employees to specific systems for life. If you really believe that in depth system knowledge is essential for the company then provide compensation for those willing to do the work needed to maintain these systems.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice for a while but not a career

    Senior Consultant (Current Employee) Tulsa, OK

    Prosthe travel industry is undergoing major changes and IT is capable of providing much needed support during these changes. The work is fast paced and can be interesting.

    ConsThe new owner, private equity, seem to follow the PE maxim "what's min is mine and what's yours is mine" when it comes to employee benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to consider long time employees as a valued asset and treat them as such. All your recent benefit changes seem to be made at the expense of senior employees. Also, I think Sabre needs to find a way to be at the forefront of a new way of offshoring work. I think having development being done by handoff from India to the US would allow for up to 16 hours a day development and better code due to the different way these cultures would look at each others code.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
