Education experience, great resume builder

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Tesla Motors full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat learning experience. Big company that's still small enough for you to have a big impact, regardless of position.

ConsSales team is highly unmotivated and unrealistic in the long-term sense. People are satisfied with average pay, and will hire just about anyone that acts excited about the cars and company.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to hire quality, as opposed to quantity.
Less micromanaging!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Production Associate (Former Employee)
Fremont, CA

I worked at Tesla Motors as a contractor for less than a year


Pros: Some of the pros, if any, were having free cereal, free soda, and the pay was decent considering how awful our situation is still on-going.… Cons: This company ergonomically fails every day. They seem to think that everyone is built like Superman. Through out the shop I saw and where I… Advice to Senior Management: Look into hiring competent HR personnel who can get things done sooner rather than months later.
