    I have been working at Tesla full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tesla Motors is truly a company that you get out of what you put in. I put in an incredible amount of hard work, and I am recognized by my managers and peers. If there is a problem, I know that my managers will accept my proposals on how to solve issues and improve the company. I have been given countless opportunities to offer solutions, and I truly feel that my feedback and input has greatly shaped the organization.

    - Continuous opportunities to make a difference within the company and beyond.
    - Brilliant down to earth and like minded colleagues.
    - Elon's company pep talks are amazing and inspiring.
    - Great uniform apparel.
    - Hottest companies to work for right now.
    - Employee stock incentives and purchase program.
    - What you learn and can contribute over 6 months at Tesla is like working 3 years at a larger company.

    Cons

    Tesla Motors will always be a demanding company to work for, and if you don't value perfection and always want to continue to improve, this company is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to seek out feedback from your associates and offer opportunities for growth.

    Pros

    Good exposure to upper management

    Cons

    Created systems don't integrate very well

    Advice to Management

    Need to get a better understanding of what needs to get done. Sometimes it is alright to buy systems that work instead of creating your own.
