    I worked at Tesla full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Health benefits, Dental, Vision, Life. Knowledgeable and helpful co-workers.

    Cons

    You are pretty much dropped into the position and expected to perform, no formal training, I was trained by others who had to be pulled from their positions, they understandably had 0 desire to teach. After getting up to speed on things they swamp you with a ton of extra responsibilities and expect you to do the job of 4 different roles. Management is often scarce, or slow to resolve issues. Managers have segregated teams to the point that there is hostility in the air. Questionable practices which go against personal and legal ethics. Make sure you can prove work is your own, I had managers try to pass it off as their own. The place is a crab bucket. Unnecessary risks to employees during Covid-19 Epidemic.

    I have been working at Tesla full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Energy level is high. People are great. Work is motivating. Benefits are better than the military (really).

    Cons

    Pay is on the mid-low range. Workplace politics occasionally get in the pay of productivity and fairness. If you aren't enthusiastic about Tesla or need a centerpiece for your resume, it might be worth looking elsewhere.

    I have been working at Tesla full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Experience in other departments since you have to do their jobs as well.

    Cons

    Management does not care to retain team members. They expect results of a team that has worked together for years but is quick to isolate individual team members who don’t agree with their reasoning. Consistently changing the review process for everyone. Over 18 months since my last review or any kind of compensation.

    I worked at Tesla full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Opportunities are endless. Working for a ground breaking company is very rewarding and eyeopening. You will be working with some of the smartest and genuinely good hearted people.

    Cons

    Commute from the city wears on you after a while. Not a super flexible wfh policy in my position. Having that could have added time to my tenure there. You will also be working long hours and dealing with challenging projects. Nobody said it would be easy, but not everyone is cut out for the grind.
