Push you until you break. Poor management. Ridiculous expectations.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Sparks, NV – November 5, 2018
As a core team member for PENA and supervisor of the formation department, I was was tasked with more than just managing my team and production. Because they were constructing and building the factory at the same time we were supposed to start production, I had to oversee the construction crews, engineers, leads, technicians, and Tesla engineering requests. Also our production area, which was supposed to be a "clean environment", was impossible to comply with given the ongoing construction throughout the gigafactory, thus making our end product unsafe. Little to no engineering support. Spent hours and days creating reports for management and solutions for training new hires. Seen the company go through several HR managers who just couldn't hack it or had terrible management styles. I began to crack and had several panic attacks there. I was given time off to help get myself back to normal but decided to leave. Safety first is their moto, but their safety reports show otherwise.
People don't leave companies, they leave management.
