Great name recognition and benefits, but that’s about it

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Palo Alto, CA

Pros- Tesla is a sexy company that everyone likes
- Amazing benefits
- The HQ is beautiful

Cons- They work you to death, terrible work life balance
- They don't promote from within, if they need a manager they will hire from the outside

- They will fire an employee at the drop of a hat

Advice to Senior Management- Allow your employees to take time off when needed
- Provide feedback to your employees so they know where they stand and can grow
