    Sensata Technologies Response

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re glad you are enjoying working with your fellow employees and are satisfied with you compensation. As a global organization, travel is a requirement in some roles and, as business needs change, travel can sometimes become required in others. We try to provide a realistic preview of that during the interview process as we understand some candidates are more willing and able to travel than others. We will continue to focus on this as a critical part of interview discussions. - Krista Allan, Vice President, Talent

    Losing Trust in Leadership

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The people, the people and the people.

    Cons

    Basically, everything else. Leadership at the highest level says one thing and does another. Compensation is competitive for new hires, but those that have been here are seriously lacking. Culture is on a significant decline. Pushing US employees to come back to the office after 3 years as a manager is very challenging, especially when you don’t agree and can’t voice concerns.
