    Pros

    Sensata invests in its employees in the form of training. Engineers are given responsibilities immediately, involving talking to customers. There is a focus on making decisions based on facts and data.

    Cons

    You have to be your own advocate, and as such it can be easy to plateau. Advancement depends a lot on how well you can sell your accomplishments to management and to your peers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Put more focus on improving the culture. Improve benefits to attract and retain talent. Add resources instead of trying to max out current employees' workload.

    I have been working at Sensata Technologies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small company size in Malaysia, there not much level or managerial. Flexi working hours although is depend on your manager. High housing/car loan subsidies.

    Cons

    Not much beneficial on upgrading and promotion. most of promotion only come after some managerial or senior level position is vacant. Below par increment and usually company will give reason that overall other global site in not performing well therefore only small increment can be paid. In much contrast claimed 'profit' inside company annual financial statement.
    Company long term strategy & focus will be keep on changing every year (not much of long term anyway).
    Unable to breakthrough with new business or technologies in recent years.
    Employee performance result will always be evaluated in term of suiting the bell curve (even though persistently denied by manager).
    Not much synergy between other department, all pointing finger attitude.
