For so long time there was feedback that it is a bad idea to have a separate org for QAs/Testers. In some places it was even fixed - by merging devs and QAs into one org. But now - another split for the TPMs? Are the leaders deaf? Or - looking at... — read more

I'm on a dev conference now and I talk to people from different companies. And even they say that Sabre is a sh--y company driven by chaos and politics. Without any 'culture'... How come SM claims that culture is one of our greatest assets? Does it... — read more

How is the move from Windows 7 to 10 going? Windows 10 is more or less ok on my home PC but the lockdown garbage that Sabre has done to it makes it just unusable. The cloud sync to OneSlowDrive would make a new i9 5ghz on all 8 cores feel like an... — read more
June is looming. Are there indications this big June layoff is coming?
Nothing but good news in the SED and the earnings call yet it keeps diving? Are the outages that bad?
My take, unimpressive, a lot of VPs that think they are VIPs. Can we put some of their headcount into areas that need it and not into people who just want to hear themselves talk? It’s painfully embarrassing how unaware they are of the real issues.
Speaking of compensation, why are randomly picked people getting free vacations? How does that encourage anything beneficial for Sabre? Shouldn't rewards be merit-based? Shouldn't we reward something that was purposely done that should be encouraged?... — read more
Has anybody else notice Sabre has become the kind of company that new people only use as a stepping stone until they can secure a better job somewhere else? Nobody is interested in staying here longer than they have to. First chance and they're out... — read more
We SIGNIFICANTLY exceeded the EPS and revenue goals set for 2018 and should have had VCP funding over 100%. However in the end of the year, Q3, they "adjusted" the guidance, then used that as the baseline for VCP. So it was only funded at 100% even... — read more

MSM re-orgs and another VP gone today

I read a posting for developer leads in Boston as Sabre gears up to re-write legacy mainframe applications to be hosted in the cloud.
The team had 6 members all but one were laid off. This lay off represents (a tad more than) 10% of the staff at the REK office. The narrative given: centralizing Operations. India being one of those centers. "The year of the people".
Quiet layoffs in MVD. During our meeting there was instructions not to call it a layoff and to pretend it is based on performance and optimization. Well I do not want to fire anyone but if they ask me to let someone go, sure it won't be due to... — read more
It would be better to keep most of the managerial positions at DFW . This would help to operate the company better
QA/testing team decentralization is not going to help the company much .IT was not that successful in the past.Hence company had moved to centralized model . What is the point now again moving back to decentralized model
we see especially majority of the times only contribuitor and senior developers are getting axed . This is not correct . why not tech leads, principals and above .
anyone else p-ss-d right now? giving us all this "people are important" and "year of people and culture" stuff while they tip us off. we are owed way more than 100% vcp, I did the math and it should be at least 140% of usual bonus. instead they are... — read more
Great performance for company in 2018 overall. My mgr said execs have kicked around numbers up to 130% for VCP based on the profit goals we set, just need to see what board approves. Very exciting!
Glassdoor has many salaries recently posted that are far under the market midpoint Sabre rate. Many have only 1 reported salary. It looks like HR is scheming again with fake reviews and now salary postings. Look for people to be underpaid soon more... — read more
