    Pros

    Pros: - Great people to work with - airline industry veterans, well qualified employees - Interesting products - Sabre has a broad suite of solutions catering to the airline industry Most of the products solve hard problems and hence it's very good work for employees looking for intellectually stimulating work - Flexible work culture

    Cons

    Cons: - No visibility in terms of career progression in the bangalore office. " Why should I stay in Sabre Bangalore for 5 years?" - that question is not answered. Many people stick around for 2-3 years, gain good experience and get out - Job titles are evolving as the company grows - please negotiate your designation properly, The career progression is typically very slow here compared to other companies. So the mapping between old job title and new job title is invariably a disappointment to many new joinees - Sabre hires pretty smart people who do contribute well to the business, but when it comes to time or appraisal time, "we haven't met our results" and so you are getting squat - Poor project management practices - You can be pretty sure the first deadline is not met, mostly because an unrealistic deadline was set without thinking about resource availability - Lots of attrition, so there are a number of new managers who themselves don't know company policies too well - Lots of travel but no stipend or per diem, just expense based on actuals - While Sabre has a number of solutions, not all the solutions are "customer ready" but are still rolled out anyway, bugs and all

    Advice to Management

    - Management is more reactive than pro active. When a customer gets really angry, all resources are thrown at the customer and once that dies, focus is shifted to the next customer who is angry. No systematic approach to customer management. This could be an outcome of heavy attrition which brings me to point 2 - Sabre hires really smart people with transferable skills. Yet, bonus is practically non existent, pay hikes in line with inflation and no money when traveling. How exactly do you hope to retain and motivate talent? - Take a honest look at all your products. Ruthlessly cut out the crappy and buggy ones. Customer does not know internal divisions, so if one product from one group is buggy, customer is extremely worried about another unrelated product

    Pros

    Of all the GDS companies, Sabre was the most advanced and had the best strategy for future positioning. Sabre invested in booking companies to compliment that strategy versus just living off travel agency generated bookings.

    Cons

    Sabre sometimes would roll out products that may not have been vetted by the customers who would use them. Few cons. Large company with many egos to deal with or avoid. Not unique to Sabre.

    Advice to Management

    None.
