I worked at Tesla Motors full-time (less than an 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 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 an 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!
