    I worked at Tesla full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The product is amazing. Most people are great to work with. The employee stock plan is excellent and can really make you a lot of money.

    Cons

    A thick, mostly incompetent layer of middle management and program managers who want to control their own silos. I reported to 6 different people in 5 years; one manager was amazing, had my back, and cared about me as a person. The rest were empire-builders with zero industry experience.

    Don't match 401K.

    Health plan is expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Hire car people. Eliminate non-value-added layers of bureaucracy.
