I would like Sabre to be a truly innovative company. But, in my opinion, it is far from being so. Where has the drive for innovation gone?
I hate having to guess about layoffs and then be caught off guard when it happens. Why can't they announce in advance there'll be layoffs so that everybody can prepare for the possibility? Every time we have to hear about it a day or two in advance... — read more
Polish zloty lost its value to US dollar by 17% y/y. Polish CPI inflation: 12.3%. Any raise below 12.3% can be considered a pay cut. Polish job market is hot and competitive right now.
Sabre is heavily in debt from the pandemic. They had to borrow some money to keep them float for few years. That is coming due very soon. The easiest and fastest way to paid it off would be layoff. Unless they can get it all refinance. This is... — read more
With attrition as high as it is, you'd think that upper management would be working on finding ways to keep some of the best people around. Instead, they seem happy to be getting rid of older and most experienced employees without having to pay them... — read more
Do you expect we'll have layoffs soon??? If the answer is yes, how big and when?
I am of the opinion that an individual alone is responsible for growing his or her skillset, and that a company can in no way prevent someone from doing that. However, there are companies that have a much more stimulating environment in that sense... — read more
And it's getting worse by the day. When I started here four years ago it was not ideal but it was barrable. Fast forward to today and I'm desperately trying to find a way out. I want to work where cooperation is encouraged instead of competition. I'm... — read more
And that will help with many things, right?
I quit Sabre early this year. I have been working at Sabre for more than 15 years. I really loved working here and the people here. I even put up with several layoffs, past 2 years of pandemic, over worked , taking up additional responsibilities... — read more
Does anyone here have any rumor about layoffs?
I have been here for more than three years and I am not satisfied. I expected a lot more and that during this time I would make much more progress in my career. I plan to leave soon, but I still keep wondering whether it was just me or did others... — read more
I know for a fact that Sabre is currently hiring so I can't understand why our team is still heavily understaffed. We're desperate for help and we've made this abundantly clear. We have communicated to our manager several times that if we don't get... — read more
Source below. In the aviation sector sanctions against Russia have been varied and include restrictions on aircraft leasing and critical spare parts, although I don’t have a good idea of their impact so far. It's interesting to note that the top 5... — read more
One interesting thing I noticed (and which I believe is very telling) is that there are more comments on this website about Sabre than about its competitors. (The last entries for Amadeus and Travelport were in 2020). Is it because Sabre employees... — read more
I have noticed that we care too much about this company and I think it is completely unnecessary. I am no longer interested in the leadership moves or the future of this company. Those at the top are paid to think about it, not me. Why, for... — read more
No desperate attempts to keep them here are working. Everybody is seeing the writing on the wall and trying to separate themselves from this place before it's too late. It's kind of fun to watch the upper management panic as they're unable to slow... — read more
The HR function has no business providing reorg advice to other business units with the mess in their own house. There is no need for an SVP-level position, period! All of the Senior Directors should be demoted to Director-level and corresponding... — read more
What I resent the most about the leadership of this company is that it has allowed Sabre to stagnate over the years and that the company is not changing enough according to new customer needs. That is my personal opinion. If there were more... — read more
Clearly, someone peed in the talent pool. After 2 years of Covid, headcount reductions, people doing the work of 3-4 people, sell of AirCentre, and loss of major airline customers, some ID10T thinks it’s time for an employee survey. This will... — read more
I miss Sabre that valued employees according to their merits. Now it is quite sad to watch new employees trying to give their best only until they realize that this is no longer the most important thing here. Perhaps I idealize the past times a... — read more
I am curious, did the headcount really grow by almost 2000 people to just under 12000 and if so, where? All I have seen is attrition, not an increased headcount.
Hey. When is the headcount freeze before salary raises? 😁
OMG. Sabre is not making enough money but they have more employees then pre pandemic levels. If you can not be lean during trying times that means you don’t have scalability in built in your DNA. Wake up leadership, see if a manger have only 5 ppl... — read more
(in the last 2-3 months?) To me this seems rather worrying, as more of my colleagues have left in the past few months than in the last few years. This company is sinking very fast.
https://www.sabre.com/insights/releases/sabre-announces-leadership-changes-to-accelerate-execution-of-its-strategy/ Looks like Dave Shirk is out and a new guy from CWT, Kurt Ekert, is in. Interesting times.
I just saw some disgusting posts on LinkedIn. One of the worst PMs I have ever met in my life is boasting about her "successes" at Sabre. Her contribution was mostly chaos, miscommunications, gossiping, toxic atmosphere and now she is boasting about... — read more
Can someone honestly explain to me what's going on with this company? Where are we? Just please - no wolverine bullsh*t.
I desperately need a vacation. I don’t remember ever being as stressed and tired as I am now. The only problem is that I think I would need a vacation of a few months to be able to get some relief. I don’t know about you, but I’m overwhelmed with... — read more
Some ideas about making employees happy without spending a dime: Give us back MLK day please! MLK day is a very inconvenient day to take a holiday. It is in January, most people are just back from long break. Nowhere to go, nothing much to do... — read more
What we know is that no one has been able to change the contracts with airlines and hotels where revenue is generated per booking. Isn't this revenue model one of the main flaws? Does Sabre offer anything different than the competitors -... — read more
The future seems more than uncertain for both us and the Sabre. There’s not much optimism, is there? Perhaps it is best to start actively looking for new opportunities.
AirCentre was a profitable division with many flagship products. Why sell it off? Waiting for your comments on the pros and cons of the decision.
How is it possible that the performance of a person who has been doing sloppy work for months and who has literally done bare minimum, is rated much better than the performance of a person who is doing triple workloads? What is the message for all... — read more
CEO calls an All Hands with just 14 hours notice? What's up?
I can take a lot of things but a verbally abusive manager not being sanctioned in any way and allowed to continue being belligerent toward his direct reports is not among them. I'm planning to give in my notice within the next few weeks whether I... — read more
Isn't this usually the time for cuts? Will this year follow the same pattern?
