Thread regarding Sabre Holdings layoffs

How is Sabre trying to prevent brain drain?

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 them.
Promotion is not a good enough reason for the best to stay, a lot more needs to be improved!

I'm here because I want to be and value the people I work with. The company has changed with the environment we are all in and its easy to see that the new opportunities will be in BLR. Its been a good ride over the last 15 years in Southlake but its time to look outside of Sabre for something new.

How about a job with a supportive manager? A place where I can make a difference? How about appreciation for my hard work - 12 hour days. Tired of being another brick in the wall. Yes, certain industries are heavily affected by the pandemic - travel and oil for example. Other industries are blossoming - banking. On my way out...

90% will be offshore anyway over time where they lick their chops gleefully and say "yes" to everything hungrily while attending hackathons that give free work to the executives

How about a regular workday? That would go a long way for my retention. Tired of starting calls at 6 and my sitter is tired of me changing the schedule.

The brain drain started with the layoffs last year. A very talented individual on my team was laid off. The person was smart and worked really hard. My take on the situation is that our manger did not appreciate and respect the individual. After that 3 key people left. Soon after the manger moved to another department. We have not been able to find anyone qualified yet.

Why do you think that it is so much better elsewhere? Thats not my impression and I think the company has gone a long way to protect the majority (85%) of its workforce. VCP, merit increase etc. Maybe you havent noticed but there is a pandemic going on

Agree 100% with the poster. Promotion and VCP alone are not enough to keep talented employees. How about interesting and challenging work? What about having the ability to make a difference, the ability to lead others and help teams move mountains? This seems to be past. Management has tightened its rains because the budgets are very tight. They think that having a tighter leash helps the company. In reality, it hurts the company. They want followers, order takers, not leaders. Employees are just another brick in the wall. Let's see how long this will last. Developers and architects are second class citizens. The company values business analysts and program managers more than engineers and architects. There are profitable companies out there that do not employ business analysts. The role is divided between the development team and business stakeholders. Run, run like the wind.

Bored? Trolling? Unable to move on? Clearly have time time on your hands - how about gracing us all with your wisdom instead of just bi—g. If merit, VCP, promotions, etc. according to you are all worthless (I assume you turned yours down) what do you suggest? Or do you just like to complain?
