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

Pros

- Promotions are based on performance and not time/experience so there is good potential the leap frog your career if you are smart and hard working.

Cons

- The company is extremely disorganized from the top down. The companies direction and priorities seem to change daily
- High stress environment that requires long hours and most weekends
- Good company to advance your career but it is only sustainable for short term.

Advice to Management

- Make some decisions and stick to a plan for things to operate more smoothly.
- Listen to employees and try to get extra man power when needed.
