    I worked at Tesla Motors as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I was looking for entry level experience in supply chain and is exactly what I got in 3 months. The project was perfect for me to understand some of the basics in a great environment. Highly motivated engineers and staff, great team work, focussed leadership.

    Cons

    Long working hours, no work life balance, no second chance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I recommend that management be mindful of goals of interns and not take their career for granted.
