So how will this affect our day to day?
Topics regarding layoffs at Sabre Holdings
CEO was dumb or desperate or both in hiring the current CHRO. She has a desk in the HR area but has very little interaction with anyone in HR other than her direct reports. She has said on numerous occasions that one of her pet peeves is that HR... — read more
IX is being sent off to Iceland/Poland was this not the flagship of AS last year for a game changer cloud solution? 2020, the year of the cheapest people and culture available.
Why does CEO tolerate an overpaid and incompetent HR leadership who is disrespectful and demeaning towards their staff? 3 from failing dairy company Dean Foods (CHRO, SVP and Sr Dir) - 2 from failing retailer Michaels (VP and Sr Dir) - 2 from failing... — read more

Hearing sadly from outside Sabre about talks of possibly rebadging of some sabre employees with maintenance only products to Accenture.. anyone heard of it or know which products involved?
Any news, anybody?
Most of the QA engineers in SSPD/TSPD team looking out for internal or external moment because some frameworks are unnecessarily imposed on them. The cucumber java framework designed is not adding any value . It has unnecessarily increased the... — read more
What are the chances of layoffs between now and Dec 31? DPMs are accelerating this year.
Overheard a leader say that we are hiring 300 ppl in India via an intern program.. I’m speculating, but I’m guessing 300 in DFW will be going away soon...
Hi hello. Could some one tell something about the situation in fight plan manager? I heard about big plans, rewriting using java etc. But from the other hand the people leave the project. Has the fpm any feature or it is only maintenance?

Guess Sabre should have kept those legal department assets?
What a sh–show that was. Our execs are very proud of their progress in nothing but buzzwords. Pushing the offshore agenda is their only eay of saving the company money. Board, wake up.
Has there been any mention of more future layoffs that I might have missed?
close to 80 people in our legal department.. Ridicules priorities.
I always find it interesting how Sabre spends the capital to build new things like the Boston Innovation Lab or buys another company that has the technology they want such as Intel Exchange but cannot keep our own in house products a float with the... — read more

It keeps getting deeper. Sabre sc-aping by while Amadeus is making double digit profits. Amadeus taking customers on the air side. American is next, mark my words. Travelport digging in deep for GDS/Distribution. What has happened?
Last layoff was once again majority older folks and they were not 'dead wood'. Good experienced people were once again let go. Layoff was due to a loss suffered by Sabre yet those let go had nothing to do with the loss. 'We want people lining up a... — read more
Sabre pull your head out of your a–. Short term profit for long term loss. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-28/boeing-s-737-max-software-outsourced-to-9-an-hour-engineers
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 many times have we heard the head of HR say this is a company that wants to hire great people, develop them and keep them until the day they retire? How many times did we hear this is the year of the people? How do you expect to create trust when... — read more
Layoffs are happening in the security department today. The VP has been let go, he's leaving 8/1. Staff is being clobbered today. Not a big team though. — read more

with all the earlier rumors about June headcount reductions and then nothing. Do people make this stuff up?
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
