    I worked at Tesla Motors as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you're in automotive this is where you want to be
    Company is really focused on the goal of all automobiles being electric

    Cons

    Low pay for engineer interns even with several previous internship experiences ($15/hr)

    Advice to Management

    Pay interns a little more, it's difficult to afford to live in the Bay area on such a low wage or provide subsidized corporate housing and ample relocation costs.

    I have been working at Tesla Motors as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is just okay, but still cannot afford to live anywhere near my job for how much I get paid. The work environment is very casual and everyone is on the same floor with one another which creates an exciting and equal work environment. People are constantly walking around, socializing, problem solving, eating candy/donuts/cereal, and experimenting.

    Cons

    Work is very repetitive and nothing is ever certain. Processes are always changing and management isn't always the best at training/keeping people on the same page.

    Advice to Management

    Set up a training process and a way to initiate people into the company. Pushing someone head first works sometimes, but management needs to focus on what makes the workforce most efficient.
