    I worked at Faraday Future full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Talented and motivated engineers with a common mission. Clear directions. Another important thing I want to say is that the HR department is the best I’ve worked with, always willing to help, even after you left the company.

    Cons

    Cons for being a startup

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work despite the noise

    Pros

    Freedom to work a lot of different challenges as I see fit. Free breakfast, free dinners, only pay for lunch $5 for a $10 meal. good money bonuses for performance. They are getting rid of the ones who are poor performers and hiring some great talent. Management is open to change and allowing their people to implement it quickly.

    Cons

    Long lead part procurement staffing needs to be worked for production.

    Advice to Management

    Long lead part procurement production staffing will become very important as it can easily save tens of millions of dollars with resistor, capacitor part changes for one years needs if we can staff up to implement now.

    I worked at Faraday Future full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In the beginning prospects were high, they employed some very intelligent hard working industry experts.
    Freedom to create new company code standards and utilize new technologies was nice, since we started from scratch.
    The free lunches were nice while they lasted...

    Cons

    Jia Yueting is not to be trusted.
    Everyone who was worth anything left the company.
    The pay isn't that great, and the stock options will never be worth a dime because Jia Yueting will screw you out of them.
    Bonuses go unpaid, just as their suppliers do.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Jia Yueting.

    Pros

    There seems to be a new change to the company, much different than the last couple of years since I joined. Management/Leadership has started to turn things around and become more open. Love the open "Lunch with the CEO" program where we can ask anything we want and conversations are open and honest.

    Cons

    Timing - with the new changes happening, it will take some time to see things come to fruition. Work-life balance, but do you really expect that at a startup?

    Advice to Management

    continue the new FF model and continue to be open and transparent. Really excited to see FF91 make it to production. Please don't digress from plan. Keep up the great work!
