While business is going downhill
How is it possible that there are so many bad managers who don't know (and some don't want to) bring out the best in people? I don't intend to be another brown noser and I have a feeling that this is precisely the reason for the manager's bad... — read more
Today some contractors (including me) were informed about layoff with one month period
The ideal employee
In the past, the ideal employee here was someone with competencies who adds value and is dedicated to his or her work to the maximum…… Today, however, it seems that the ideal employee in this company is someone without experience, who barely knows... — read more
EU employees status still TBD
It is 30-May and EU-based employees still do not know anything about RIFs. The big announcement was 15May and since then there has been no update from HR. Leadership talks like the RIFs are all over without even acknowledging that EU employees are... — read more
Just doesn’t seem fair
I invested many years at Sabre just to be left out in the cold like an unwanted old pet. I was potty trained and thought I was obedient. Always remember everyone is expendable so have a plan B. I did not.
Farewell and thanks
I remember a time when an employee who had given a large part of his/her life to a company was thanked sincerely for their contributions, taken out for a nice meal and given a generous gift. 20/30 year veterans are now told to eff off and threatened... — read more
Number of job levels in Sabre
I was laid off on 15 May and when I spoke with a recruiter, she asked about the job levels in Sabre to match my role with her organization. I can't remember the total number of job levels in Sabre. Can someone please let me know?
Call Center situation
Does anyone know if Sabre is planning on closing any one of the 3 call centers worldwide and then having WSOL take over all the calls???
SKY Airlines to migrate to Sabre PSS - who will deliver?
https://www.sabre.com/insights/releases/sky-airline-expands-sabre-distribution-agreement-and-adopts-sabresonic-passenger-service-system/ How do you migrate a new customer to the Sabre PSS when you have just laid off the best people to do such a... — read more
There are still many excellent employees here
I understand why those of us who cannot find a new job are still here, but I don't understand how it is possible that so many people with great skills, who are very marketable, are still here?
Where are the pet adoption people?
Usually when there is a layoff, they have a pet adoption at the same time to distract others that half of your coworkers just took it in the rear.
There's no point in staying at Sabre!
I've only been here for two years and I already hate it. The base salary ain't cutting it, there's no chance for career growth, and the job itself is boring. Having layoffs at a time when there are more and more employees who are thinking like me is... — read more
Not a Good Look
For People Team Recruiter to be posting pictures celebrating the beginning of summer internship program when 1,000+ employees have just been laid off!
Next step = Product sale???
Just wondering, now that the layoffs are done/almost done, is KE considering selling off and products for further savings?? Any thoughts what products might go??
I heard there’s another one coming. I guess the investors are not reacting as expected (this part is just me guessing or trying to justify( but I don’t really know. Anyone has more “concrete” news?
No Payout for accrued PTO?
While I'm sure that HR has done their legal homework, I have to ask...is it legal to NOT pay out for accrued PTO when laid off for financial reasons in Texas? I don't recall signing anything to agree to this changed policy.
Lost Sabre ID :-(
I WFHed out of state and haven't visited Southlake in 3.5 years. So naturally my ID has gone missing. What now, no severance pay? Or am I taking all the threats too seriously?
Is my pension safe if Sabre goes down?
Legacy employee, just sent to showers. If Sabre eventually goes down, is my pension safe, for the rest of my living days? How does that work?
What is wrong with this place?
Why can't they ever get their act together? Reorg after reorg; layoff after layoff. Every year! For decades! I was rif'd two decades ago from this company. It paved the way for finding my dream job at a much better run firm - a giant, by the way. And... — read more
Job Opportunity Thread
Does anyone know anyone who’s hiring? Comment here with links if you do!
Whomever I talk to, I notice the same thing: people are very unhappy. I wouldn't be too surprised if a mass exodus ensued?
Getting new offers
I don't want to spend any more time thinking about Sabre and trying to make sense of these layoffs. Sending resumes and looking for a new job is now my main priority. Some people are afraid that they won't be able to get a good offer for a long... — read more
Despite current executives, Sabre will be successful
I get the sentiment - they laid me off, so they s*ck, management stinks, and the company is in a downward spiral to bankruptcy. But if you've been around long enough, you know this industry is cyclical - yes, definitely in a spiral now, but most... — read more
CAE (MVD) - when are the restrictions over?
I believe active Sabre employees will be allowed to be considered by CAE from March or Aril 2023, I cannot remember the date. I don't feel comfortable here any more, does anyone know/remember the actual date?
Agreement and General Release Received?
Did anyone in the USA receive their Agreement and General Release form today, MAY-16? I did not. :-(
For some of us, this is a blessing in disguise
Of course I am very disappointed. I feel naive because I put in a lot of effort here and got "rewarded" with a layoff. I lost my job at a very difficult time for me. However, somehow, despite everything, I try to think positively that this is a... — read more
I guarantee you things will get better
Layoffs are never a walk in the park, there's no doubt about it. But hey, once the initial shock wears off and you find a better job, you might actually end up thanking them for the wake-up call. It's like a slap in the face that jolts you into... — read more
Bankruptcy is inevitable
I was let go off this Monday and I was lucky to have my as covered with a backup job. many gud and honest talent were let go off along with me while some as lickers got saved . Bankruptcy is inevitable. For those honest and hardworking folks who... — read more
This is just outright shocking
Been with this company for many years (was impacted this time) and like others saw many many layoffs throughout the years, since it is Sabres nature to do layoffs. This massacre is just outright shocking and so many of the folks let go were the glue... — read more
Future of Sabre - Bankrupcy?
Just look at the stock price. Investors will continue to pound it down. Way too much debt that may not be able to be refinanced and not enough revenue. Can't even go private again - too much debt. Cuttings costs is a temporary fix to hide low revenue... — read more
Why wasnt this process finished on May 15?
They got us all on a call on May 5 to tell us the great news that 15% of us would be kicked out. We were told this would happen on May 15 but wasnt complete on that day. There are still countries in EMEA who are waiting and the company seems tio have... — read more
Count in US
How many layoffs in US ?
If customers are complaining about support
Why was the support team heavily impacted and what are the expectations? There’s no L1 for a lot of products, L2 can sometimes hardly keep up the best thing to do is to reduce the head count there? Can anyone explain?
% by country?
Does anyone know the % of layoffs by location?
A lot of people that have decades under their belt were laid off. Of everyone I knew being laid off (DFW/USA based) I feel I was the youngest and I'm pushing 50. I recognized that people that have been with Sabre for 20+ years probably are high... — read more
