    I have been working at Tesla Motors part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great. Every day you are surrounded with talented people who are working hard for Tesla and for what the company stands for. Tesla gives people the opportunity to work toward something they truly believe in

    Cons

    As a car company, Tesla attracts more male talent than female talent and this has a slight affect on company culture.

    poor management, nobody cares about you I think because there are too many personal, I think is better work in a small company, nobody knows the vision, mission and goals is just production that's the only matters.

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

    Pros

    Free cereal in cafeterias, PTO and paid holiday.

    Cons

    The feelings of meaningless drab start to feel all to real when the free cereal in the cafeteria high fades off. Coworkers will constantly remind you they couldn't get another job and that is why they came to TESLA with both their words and actions. You get to watch awesome talks about how big the company will be some day then realize the only reason GM Ford or Toyota haven't crushed this place yet is because the government subsidized purchases protect the horrible efficiency and seemingly oblivious team leads and supervisors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you ask a manager where their employees are during a shift and they couldn't tell you what they did for a month because after achieving production everyone just texts or wanders away, it means you have a problem. Stop allowing self appointed leaders from scaring out talent.

    Stressed Contractor

    I have been working at Tesla Motors

    Pros

    Company is innovative and has plenty of resources available for growth. I only had a few weeks to get involved and not enough time to really comment here.

    Cons

    No management of contract staff. Most staff seem to be under a lot of pressure to get things done with not much time to interact with new team members. In other words, my supervisor did not take time to introduce me to Tesla's methods of starting a project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to (1 to 3) days to orient new contractors to the Tesla Company way of doing things. Learning curve is complicated by no interaction with required staff.

    I have been working at Tesla Motors

    Pros

    Work with incredibly talented and bright people. Probably the brightest I've ever been associated with. Everyone truly believes in the mission of the company.

    Cons

    Very disorganized. Slow communication between departments. 24 hour work life with crazy deadlines. Get yourself ready for a ride. Promotions are few and far between.
