    I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work is very exciting, fast paced. Time to market is quicker than anywhere else. Lots of cutting edge projects and smart people to work with. The atmosphere is still leaning towards a small startup with collaboration across departments. If you want responsibility, Tesla will pile it on until you say "when".

    Cons

    Long hours, impossible deadlines and minimal job security. Almost everyone working at or above long term sustainable levels. Almost non-existent employee benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having a really great product is good motivation, but that novelty wears off. If you want to keep the top talent that you've worked so hard to recruit, you need to have solid employee comp, benefits and job security. One reason Tesla is losing some of it's veterans is that they are underpaid, new hires make more than people with years of experience bringing Tesla to success. Tesla needs to implement some kind of mid-year compensation leveling. It would also help to actually hold reviews yearly, I know we are all busy, but you can't keep overworking your people and pushing off their reviews and compensation bonus. Take the time to treat your employees right and they will give you their loyalty.
