Exciting company, but work environment deteriorating

Individual Contributor (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time for more than 3 years

ProsTechnology is interesting, product is unique, and there is a ton of job satisfaction.
Some of the most intelligent people I have worked with. There is so much engineering done "in-house" that it provides tremendous opportunities to learn and grow your career.

ConsAbsolutely no work life balance. Tesla is hiring rapidly and the quality of people coming in are not the same caliber of what they used to be. There is a great deal of politics and back stabbing even at the lower levels. Too many manager types and not enough people willing to do actual work

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many inexperienced and power hungry managers. Politics are getting out of hand at all levels and making Tesla an unpleasant place to be and I am seeing too many incredible people (execs, managers, and individual contributors) leaving because of it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
