National Remarketing Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON26 June 2018
It is a great place to learn if you have problem solving characteristics. The hardest part of the job is all of the problems that you have to solve without having a concrete infrastructure in place to support you. Far from a regular car company.
Pros
Lots of Space to grow if you are a problem solver
Cons
Work life balance is terrible

Great company
Marketing Specialist (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 May 2018
Tesla is a great company to work for. They give you most of the skills you need to be successful in this business. It is a strong sales workplace, and if you do not have the aptitude for competitive sales, you may not find this role suitable for you.

Fast paced company
Sales (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON25 January 2018
A typical day at Tesla is anything but typical. You have to be ready to go at all times and help out anyone who needs a hand, in any department. A regular sales day involves talking to customers who walk in, capturing information, booking test drives, and following up with clients. Everyone is passionately motivated and loves what they do so it makes it easier.

You have to drink the Kool Aid
Technician (Current Employee) –  Montréal, QC25 October 2017
Touts “Radical Entrepreneurship” as justification for a lot of poorly thought out strategies and very bad decisions. These bad decisions impact your life as an employee and also result in a very poor quality of the product. I lost several good teammates last week to a mass layoff disguised as performance reviews. I have a year until my shares are vested, assuming I survive the next performance review. Take the job only if you are willing to drink the Kool Aid.

People don't quit companies...they quit management.
Owner Advisor (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 August 2017
Lured in by the grandeur of working for a company that is "changing the world". They are no different than any other company so don't be fooled. Elon.
