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 ManagementAdvice

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 (more than a year)

    Pros

    The 'coolness' factor is very high and that is what drew me to Tesla. My job is exciting to some extent and I have a decent boss who understands my pain. Plus pay is OK

    Cons

    There is absolutely no work life balance and the upper management sucks, especially when they think anyone not with a IVY LEAGUE degree is not Tesla worthy! I have seen contractors are worked to the bone and I have first hand information that they are told to not charge overtime if they want a permanent job!!! THAT IS NOT COOOL AT ALL!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect people with experience and people who give their time away from family to make Tesla a better company. You have some people who do their job to a minimal extent but survive because of a pretty face!

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
