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?
I have a feeling I’m non-stop working. It's not that there is no work-life balance, I don't have a life at all. I thought I would never become a man reduced to his job, but so it happened. Because of the amount of work I have to, I was unable to... — read more
Good companies respect and treat their employees in a consistent and fair manner especially during times such as a global pandemic. Sabre has a long history of disrespecting work life balance, under compensating people, and manufacturing reasons to... — read more
I've been here for long enough to remember the time when most of the people who worked here were satisfied with their jobs and with good reason. Decent pay, decent benefits, reasonable job security, good company culture... I'm not sure any of those... — read more
There is nothing to hold up the morale when most of the remaining employees expect it can only get worse here. People seem to have lost all hope. I just hope I can get out of here as soon as possible. Sabre could at least get a little more engaged... — read more
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?
