Great working environment, stressful at times. Great benefits offered by Tesla. Opportunities endless for advancement. Great management and upper management

Good company, poor accountability

Working at Tesla was great, and if everyone did their job as trained, then workers wouldn't have to finish another workers job before they could begin their own task. The lack of accountability for the poor effort done by workers was my reason for leaving after a year.

Difficult and Rewarding

You have many different opportunities and have the freedom to switch teams after some time. Work hard, solve complex problems, network with people. The most difficult and most rewarding place I've ever worked.

Great People But very difficult work and job times.

Some challenges. Working outdoors in the weather or inside in attics. The physical demands. If your not fit you will never make the time deadlines for installs. You have t work fast no matter the job in the field.


Great People, good pay. Great benifits


Lack of restrooms (in the field), weather, time constraints

Great Management and Efficient Team

Great manager and mentor in the battery team. Good communication. Fulfilling works. About 50-60 hrs per week. Efficient team. Amazing product. Would recommend!

Unproductive and unprofessional, management definitely made the job less enjoyable due to their lack of technical expertise

What is the best part of working at the company?There aren’t any notable positives to working there, pretty average benefits and payWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?The lack of accountability in middle management perfectly explains teslas reputation for mass layoffs of management. What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Toxic work environment, definitely a lot of Elon bros working there. What is a typical day like for you at the company?My day was typically spent passing down information that was sent from management, management was poor at providing clear guidelines for the team and failed to officially document many of the pass downs to the team.

A good place if you're okay with manual labor as the pay is good and the benefits are too, but wouldn't recommend staying here.

What is the best part of working at the company?The schedule is convenient and the pay is goodWhat is the most stressful part about working at the company?The company doesn't care about you, even if your supervisors do.What is the work environment and culture like at the company?Team oriented, mostly relaxed What is a typical day like for you at the company?Consistently moving back and forth at an easy pace for hours at a time with small pauses in between. Not overwhelming but can feel like a lot at first.

It’s alright

You’re allowed to listen to your own music in the factory, but there’s too much favoritism going on causing people who aren’t qualified to move up and those who are, to stay stagnant.

Hard pass type of company

Politics, high school buddy buddy, brown nosing your way around to get in the crew the above is a typical day at work, no you will learn anything these guys are jack of all trades masters of none, inept management, worst workplace culture please read above, brown nosing is the hardest part of the job, Quit has been the most enjoyable part of the job

Aggressive Deadlines

Tesla will require you to constantly work overtime and weekends. No regard for wlb. With exceptions, the people here are generally great to work with and are friendly.

Loved my coworkers but the higher up makes decisions that negatively effect their workers

From laying off workers, to overworking their employees and not providing reasonable promotions. Overall though I enjoyed what the company is and the people in it.

High pressure and stressful

Cons - Fun to a certain extent but too much pressure and stress from above. Even at the bottom. Too many vacation black outs. Pros - Pays well and has great benefits.

Good place to work! Fast paced! Culture of innovation and accountability with a very strong bias for action. RSU options are generous. Vesting starts after year 1.

Nice coworkers but repetitive work.

I had a great experience working at Tesla.The work was repetitive but the coworkers are great. The only problem was the long commute to and from work.

Don’t work here

Hard work! Horrible pay!! Supervisors and team leads have no experience and don’t know how to communicate!!! All the company cares about is meeting numbers.

This job actually made me realize life is depressing at a young age

You get to build sports cars for the rich people that you'll never be able to afford. You drive up to the factory and the parking lot if full of petroleum vehicles. Everybody including their mother in production wants to be a maintenance tech or lead supervisor and there can only be one. Most of the current management "started off at the Whitney Peaks Hotel" 6 years ago and have bought their houses and plan to be there in the local area until they die, but the company has said that they are building more onto the factory which should open up more positions if you've been waiting there 10 years and you have the stomach to do it. I feel really sorry for you if you are a production associate that's legitimately a hard worker because you wont get noticed, well you'll get noticed but don't expect a promotion to a decent job. You're sitting there looking at all these rich mangers that got rich off stock options that never even had to work nearly as hard as you, its sad.


Very modern looking environment


Gets boring
