Leader (Current Employee) – Nevada – September 17, 2018
The company sets impossible goals and meets the demand with minimal resources. A great company to learn how to be scrappy and get the task done. Many advancement opportunities. However, the leadership structure is unconventional and leads to a lot of confusion and does not often align with the company direction. The company needs a standard structure for leadership.

Being at one of the fastest growing company with the eyes of the world on you, it was an amazing experience. The sheer energy that all the employees bring to work every day is magnificent. Definitely recommended.
Quality Inspector (Current Employee) – Fremont, CA – September 17, 2018
Everything is a rush at Tesla, You will frequently see very high up people running around frantically towards the end of a quarter including the CEO because it is a must we hit the production numbers. They will call on additional production days with only a few days notice cutting in to your weekends... You need to be fast, punctual and precise. If you manage to survive, they will try to take care of you.

In the race to get electric vehicles onto the market Tesla has made a major bet in Nevada at the gigafactory employing thousands of people on a 24 /7 basis.Fast paced and exciting but long hours and long commute
HSE Manager US Operations (Former Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – September 14, 2018
Management continuously stressed education and provided time and assistance to attend courses to benefit employees. The hardest part of the job to get used to was the travel requirement, travel was 100 percent of the position.
Absolutely no work life balance unless you work in management or not working production
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Sparks, NV – September 14, 2018
They like to blame people for things instead of machines failing. Whenever they cant figure out an issue the scapegoat is the people. Working for this company is fun at first, and then the people here show their true colors.

LEAD ASSOCIATE (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – September 13, 2018
tesla is very good for a career, pay is good, hours are good, but it will tire you out. Make sure to rest your body when needed, some departments only have one day off so use your rest days accordingly. Tesla is also a revolving door, their turn over rate is very high and you are REPLACEABLE!!!!
Fast paced, dog eat dog work environment. Better be on your game.....meaning your A game. Be prepared for lots of changes on the fly. All types of interaction....from dealing directly with Elon to locally hired contractors.
Production Associate (Current Employee) – Sparks, NV – September 12, 2018
Very long hours with mandatory overtime every week, the work isnt hard but the coworkers and some of the Leads and Supervisors can make your job very difficult. There is little to no communication between Supervisors and Leads let alone between different departments and areas. Favortisim is a big thing for Supervisors and Leads as well, people who barely have any experience get promoted before those that have been there longer.
Manufacturing test engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Sparks, NV – September 11, 2018
The only con I can perceive is that Tesla is a high stress, high pace environment. People here work really hard and get things done. I wouldn’t say it is for everyone, but for a lot of people they would fit right in and feel at home. management is kinda messy since people change their mind every day due to the difficulty meet pn the line
Quality Technician III (Current Employee) – Sparks, NV – September 10, 2018
Very fast paced environment that demands much from employees, but provides every opportunity for personal and professional growth. Management is extremely flat and response times and implementation are exceedingly quick because of it.
Personal development, plenty of advancement opportunities
