Pros

It is a lot of work, but you can definitely learn a lot as an intern at Tesla. Besides that, the SF Bay area is a great place...a lot of fun

Cons

It is not clear if there will be a full-time opportunity in the future.
Sometimes, you may not get enough resource/support.

Advice to Management

Tesla has the best engineers and interns. But sometimes, these young talents deserve more attention and opportunity. What keeps people at Tesla should be much more than a fact that Tesla make cool cars.

    Pros

    What Tesla is trying to do is challenging, interesting, and important. The company is OK, management is OK, but the economy is a challenge and it is really hard for us to get working versions of all our custom designed parts. I think it will be always good to have Tesla on my resume!

    Cons

    Who knows if we will make it. We just had a 20% layoff, leaving a lot more work for the rest of us. Who knows if there will be more layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe we should slow down the sedan project, try to avoid custom parts, try to get our suppliers to bear more costs, and try agressive licensing of our IP to others making electric vehicles.

  2. Low rewards with very high potential and also high risk
