Pros

A fairly flat hierarchy, and an emphasis on an open environment allows for most to contribute in a meaningful way.

It's Tesla.

Cons

It is easy to get consumed in your work, and lose a healthy work-life balance. The work is very difficult, and tight deadlines lead to a considerable amount of stress.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to be better at and more transparent about treating employees. Need to address the issue of work life balance otherwise it will backfire in the long term. Need to recognize employees for their hard work.
