Is it just quiet before the storm or can I relax a bit if they aren’t on the horizon for a while longer?
SBR's stock has significantly dropped recently? What happened this time?
I did and I screwed myself over majorly. Now my boss knows and it's a very awkward and uncomfortable situation. Not to mention that now I can kiss goodbye even the possibility of getting severance. They have zero incentive to include me on the next... — read more
I am often interested if those at the top see the problems that this company has, at least in a similar way as ordinary Sabre employees do. I would never say that they are incompetent, nor that they do not notice the problems, but that they are not... — read more
Forcing people in various subtle ways to leave this company, is a much more perfidious form of layoffs. I’ve never lost so many colleagues as lately. They all left on their own, and there are many reasons. Are you also in a situation where they are... — read more
Let teams evaluate their PMs and managers and you will see how this company will improve. How much mismanagement will be eliminated. How wasting of time and resources will be reduced. There are many great PMs and managers here, but there are also... — read more
Thinking about applying to a few finance/accounting openings. Is that group eligible for WFH?
Looks like execs really have no clue what lower-level managers are doing...
Someone mentioned a very important thing and that is sacrifice: Management acknowledged sacrifice in order to make the project successful. I am sick of the mantra that employees should often sacrifice themselves, their time and their health for... — read more
Abnormal amounts of work, squeezing people to the limit, managers who can't really brag about their competencies, poor communication, etc. Too much is required of employees. It is difficult to maintain a positive attitude in all this. The only thing... — read more
This was never the perfect place to work but at least there was some semblance of job security and the work atmosphere was decent. Now we have morphed into a place with zero job security with as toxic a work environment as I have ever experienced. I... — read more
Does it even exist here?
Heard from a pretty credible source that layoffs and possibly a big strategic shift is coming for the Hospitality Team soon. Anyone else hearing this? I've heard enough rumblings that it is driving me to look for my next opportunity.
Sabre has invested heavily in technological transformation to be competitive once the travel environment rebounds. My personal opinion is that a pandemic is a bit of a weird time for such technological migration and such investments. Some others... — read more
I know at least 5 people who have left recently and thanks to their talent got much better positions in new companies. Sabre no longer seems to me to have any effective mechanisms to keep them. Besides, I'm afraid they are not even trying to keep... — read more
Has anybody received word on merit increment. Can you share your %increment range?
Anyone have opinions on the new article?
Post from TheLayoff.com
I've noticed that some people on this forum are very sensitive when someone complains about the difficult working conditions here. Immediately they start giving advice to people to quit if they don't like working here. I’m sick of these... — read more
Looking for a merit promotion or a VCP, then isn’t it time to leave Saber? The merit promotions are reserved for the boys club when the revenues drop and VCP is than 100% funded. Looking for a salary based on merit and work achievements, the look... — read more
Looks like the entire DX department in SHS has been shuttered and employees laid off. Any other teams looking at layoffs?
Thoughts on the merit cycle now that it’s open?
No nonsense, no hate, no trolling please.
Why has Sean Menke been dumping 200,000 stocks recently? I am sure he is "very confident" that Sabre will have a bright future, why else would he take his money elsewhere? I am ex Sabre - is he still feeding the same BS to the team in his town... — read more
I need to know I got keeeds
So peanuts are getting distributed as VCP. Low level workers don't get much anyways since wages are too low. This year only VPs and above for benefitted (anyways they always were) and good millions in stock options. Rest are just wasting there time... — read more
We’ve had quite a few people leave our BU in the last few months. These were people who either had knowledge/experience or showed such promise. To say it’s put a damper on morale is an understatement. I’m starting to wonder if this is the norm here... — read more
When is that VCP coming? Early mid or late Dec?
Is this bonus PTO after christmas, a prep for some end-year layoffs? Or its just a sneaky way to give 'something' to the employees without an immediate impact on the cash flow?
Paying out nearly $30M USD in bonus payouts and more than that amount for retention bonuses with revenue down 74% and net air bookings down 87%? wtf?
What does work from anywhere actually mean? Would this allow working on a cruise ship balcony or at a resort in Cancun with a decent internet connection and if not, its not work from anywhere.
The red tape machine has screwed up WFA already knew it was too good to be true.
I thought Sabre would have had another big round of layoffs by now. I have to admit, i miscalculated that obviously and I was wrong. Congrats !
Things were bad when I was cut three years ago. I was hoping stuff might have improved since then, but it doesn't seems so.
