I worked at Tesla Motors full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The people there are great, the product is amazing & there are many good minds & great collaboration. Everyone here believes in team work & it's the only way to get things done in time & get things accomplished in a timely manner...

Cons

Very demanding. Sometime their expectations of people are not realistic. They tend to keep asking for more & more...

Advice to Management

We don't mind working hard but please cut as a small break once in a while...
