    I have been working at Tesla Motors full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    * A lot of room for growth
    * Great work environment
    * Free coffee/snacks/beverages

    Cons

    * Management - not enough employee/manager relation. a lot of processes are still up in the air. Too much hierarchy (too many power trips from managers). A lot of managers do NOT lead by example.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees so they will take care of you and will feel good about working there - basic management psychology. Tesla tends to sell the dream, but when it comes down to work - there is no balance.
