I left Sabre because of my manager. I was not afraid of the covid impact or a lay off. I decided to show some respect to myself. US managers are ok.In KRK very poor. They have a huge talent demotivating people. What a pity i had to quit after so many years , because sabre is a great company and the work life balance is just great...
Every manager, every person has strengths, weaknesses, insight and blind spots. It’s human. S/he also deals with things that I thankfully don’t have to worry about. In the end, s/he supports me, advocates for me, and acts as a buffer for a ton of noise, so no complaints from me.
Some of my managers have been very good and some extremely bad. It is worth mentioning that there was 5 year period during which I had 6 different managers. It seems that there is very high turnover across the board.
I had a manger for about year who did not have the necessary skills and background to lead a highly technical team of architects. The manger came from a customer service focused department in the company. The manager felt challenged most of the time. If there was an issue which required escalation to be resolved, the manager's answer was just make the issue go away. He or she did not make any effort to understand the issue. My colleagues felt that as the manger did not understand what we do, the manager was not supportive. Then about a year later the manager transferred internally to another department, away from managing technical people and projects.
