I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time for more than a year

Pros

-Work with good people.
-Free cereal & Soda from the tap.
-Opportunity to learn operation of machines/tools

Cons

-Management are concerned with their own appearance and how good you can make THEM look.
-Unless you kiss bootie hard ,don't plan on getting hired.
-No matter how far you excel with your work ,it is ignored for the bootie-kissers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My advice to management is for them to quit , so Tesla can hire management that
recognizes hard working people.
GO TO A MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY SCHEDULE. 8 HOURS A DAY !
If Tesla implements the Monday through Friday schedule 8 hours a day, they won't have to keep hiring people for those who quit under duress of these 12 hour shifts right into weekends.

    For a tech company that is trying to make it big, they are extremely unorganized from a process and procedures stance.

    Pros

    Good exposure to upper management

    Cons

    Created systems don't integrate very well

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to get a better understanding of what needs to get done. Sometimes it is alright to buy systems that work instead of creating your own.
