Tesla's mission is one of the main reasons why I work for them. But coming to work and being in the work environment in autopilot seems like a college campus with weak leaders in place that doesn't care about you at all because you're just a number. The leaders in place (in this dept.) just wears a "caring mask" but as soon as you go about your business, they no longer will give you 2nd thought. There's no sense to humanity or genuine connection here for many of the new hires, and if you speak up against the current culture or lack thereof... you will be "talked with" so that it doesn't happen again. The place is just growing too fast and no strong empathetic leader is in place to help scale and promote a positive culture.Everyone mainly ignores each other and no one really know how to make eye contact. It's just an awkward college campus inside a warehouse as someone stated before.Advice to Management:Care, put people in place that could promote a positive culture that is enthusiastic about Tesla's mission statement.You're promoting a bunch individuals with a high school mentality into managing positions that is damaging the entire culture.

I worked in service as an advisor for 3 years at Tesla. At my location I had 3 managers in 3 years. The culture was extremely toxic despite all of my coworkers getting along very well. The company takes a very punitive approach when trying to get more out of their employees- management cracks the whip and randomly hands out bad reviews to motivate people often threatening your job. The upper management are most frequently finance industry goons who cannot innovate or think outside of the box. They are only interested in pushing metrics so they can show off their “achievements” to their managers even when these metrics are in direct contradiction for what is good for the customer or service center. You will be treated with zero respect and given no opportunities. Leadership is always hired from the outside unless you are willing to move to a different city for a job that probably will pay slightly more than whatever role you are currently in. Tesla doesn’t want creative problem solvers they only want robots who follow orders. Leadership often implement policies that you know will not work or cause damage to the company- you will be labeled a bad egg no matter how delicately you bring the subject up. Everyone eventually falls in line and does what their told- but guess what? When you can’t achieve your goals because of their bad policy you are still held responsible. They would do things like bring more cars than they could service into the center just so they could line up east jobs to make the numbers look higher- then they would be stuck with all of the heavy work after and yell at technicians like children for not being able to get it done. The most positive thing I can say about Tesla is it will open doors with other companies. You will learn a lot about electric vehicles which is a huge boom industry in 2021 and be able to go work for any company that makes EVs easily.
