I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Tesla Motors is truly a company that you get out of what you put in. I put in an incredible amount of hard work, and I am recognized by my managers and peers. If there is a problem, I know that my managers will accept my proposals on how to solve issues and improve the company. I have been given countless opportunities to offer solutions, and I truly feel that my feedback and input has greatly shaped the organization.

- Continuous opportunities to make a difference within the company and beyond.
- Brilliant down to earth and like minded colleagues.
- Elon's company pep talks are amazing and inspiring.
- Great uniform apparel.
- Hottest companies to work for right now.
- Employee stock incentives and purchase program.
- What you learn and can contribute over 6 months at Tesla is like working 3 years at a larger company.

Cons

Tesla Motors will always be a demanding company to work for, and if you don't value perfection and always want to continue to improve, this company is not for you.

    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.
