I have been working at Tesla full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Ability to work with cutting edge technology on great products with a team of highly talented and experienced people - changing the world.

Cons

Tesla has a lot of very opinionated and at times arrogant Stanford graduates. It is very apparent that the experience of automakers in Detroit does not really impress Tesla folks......this could be a bad thing....

Advice to Management

Start appreciating your employees more; create more free services for employees as other companies in the bay are are doing...

    Pros

    There are smart people to work with, who are eager to share their knowledge.
    Culture of open communcication.
    Meritocracy - the best and brightest do get recognized.
    The long term vision has an inspiring purpose.
    You are routinely challenged to do things nobody has done before.

    Cons

    Organizational structure is hard to decipher sometimes.
    The daily challenges make it hard to see the big picture.
    The annual review system is ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Separate reviews into two parts - raises and stock option grants based on what one has done well, and forward-looking feedback/improvements and goals.
