I worked at Tesla Motors full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The people there are great, the product is amazing & there are many good minds & great collaboration. Everyone here believes in team work & it's the only way to get things done in time & get things accomplished in a timely manner...

Cons

Very demanding. Sometime their expectations of people are not realistic. They tend to keep asking for more & more...

Advice to Management

We don't mind working hard but please cut as a small break once in a while...

    I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced, growing, and fascinating place to learn and grow within your role and the company. No day is the same as the company continues to grow.

    Cons

    Constant process clashes between start-up mentality and corporate mentality clamps. Company continues to grow, but is experiencing growing pains while implementing new processes.

    Advice to Management

    Create better training programs for new hires as trial by fire may cause the company to lose some great employees that may sink/not swim.

    Advice to Management

    10 bil market cap on 2 bil borrowed (~1.5 mil invested + ~ 500 DOE) in operation for 10 years and a 10 mil in profits. Interesting how those numbers stack up. in classic silicon valley style its high risk high reward. Boom and bust. Time will tell. My opinion? If tesla can operate for another 10 years, it could be the end of ICE as we know it. Energy density in battery tech is increasing, not decreasing, historically. eek, out another 150 miles of range, that's a pretty compelling case for 5000 ft lb of torque at 0 rpm. Alternatively, the company is kind of like a runaway freight train, one costly defect recall and the whole thing could go flying off the tracks.
