    I worked at Tesla Motors full-time

    Pros

    Sexy fast cars, allot of incredibly talented people, excellent benefits, cutting edge opportunity and free food.

    Cons

    TERRIBLE TERRIBLE QUALITY CONTROL, vehicles shipped to customer locations incomplete yes MISSING PARTS that should have been installed at the factory from doors, frunks to the screws that hold the vehicle to solid (CraZy...), salaries WAY below market, RIDICULOUS cut throat management politics, VERY disorganized throughout the company, ZERO work life balance (forget having a day off), I've seen them FIRE employees in an instant and HIDE behind the "CA. AT WILL ACT" so they don't have to deal with management or their quality issues, HR. claims to have an open door policy but what they really mean is open your mouth about anything and your FIRED (I've seen it), allot of haste with company money on travel between cities and countries rather than QC at factory level and quality staffing, "NO RECOGNITION OF TALENT & HARD WORK.”, review system is a joke this is a very frustrating environment.

    I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very public company with great brand recognition.

    Cons

    Very poor management who regularly abuses their power.
    Below average pay - Many customer facing employees are paid poorly and sometimes are in danger of a salary cut.
    The use of intimidation and fear tactics.
    Excessive work hours 65+ hours a week is expected.
    Management is primarily made up of engineers and not business oriented professionals.
    HR has a blind eye to abuse and will not take action against managers.
    Illegal work practices.
    Little to no training.
    Extreme favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold regular peer reviews, hire real industry professionals and start a management training program to educate managers on proper management techniques and practices.
