Hard at work on fantastic projects that can make a real difference in the world.

Senior Design Engineer (Current Employee)
Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Tesla Motors

ProsHighly competent staff, lots of experts. Very high degree of trust and autonomy in doing work. Everyone works hard and no one asks them to do so. Fantastic culture. Seeing the awesome cars we are building come together with parts we design is as cool as it gets. Great people.
Free breakfast cereals, coffee, snacks, drinks. Great brand.

ConsPay does not measure up to other places I could work. So easy to work hard since the projects are so cool, it's a challenge to keep the work/life balance in a happy place. Would like to see more emphasis on workplace safety. Limited staff to handle the hyper growth that is underway.

Advice to Senior ManagementSet goals and review them in a more concrete way so performance reviews can be based on performance. Keep up the commitment to uncompromising excellence. Keep bringing on top performers and letting them do what they do best. Ask for more feedback from employees.
