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

"Introducing what our core values thrive on, Sabre Next^2, Get sh-- done half the cost half the time, half the manpower" and "VCP plan is new and proved as everyone gets a $10 Walmart Gift Card Instead"
Our leadership is still a bunch of disconnected douchebags. That includes the board.
If you were granted a stock award that vests over several years as an incentive to not quit then what happens to the unvested stock if you are laid off before it's vested? Do you lose it or does it vest on schedule even though you no longer work for... read more
...of course they are being called headcount reorganizations.
Any information about that?
bye bye to those with rating below successful
Sabre execs are patting themselves on the back for 2018 turning around the perception that Sabre is a chop shop since there were no mass layoffs. The illusion is that there still are typical mass layoff practices going on. Louis Selincourt was... read more
It was officially announced today that TSPD "won" the budget and teams will be moving there. What was not said is that this was complete surprise for the affected teams both long and short term. Rumor says that around 150 popeple was moved without... read more

Anyone seeing signs of layoffs? Specifically USA. I've observed a few things that make me nervous, such as budgets getting slashed. Other minor stuff.
You may like, or not like Sean Menke, but you gotta admit that this guy has ambition and almost frightening willpower. I just read this article on Menke’s ”bold and brilliant” strategy for Sabre’s future. I admit when they put it like this, most... read more
