Great place to learn, but be ready to keep up with the pace

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time for less than a year

ProsFast 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.

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

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