Tesla Motors Employee
in Palo Alto, CA

"If you absolutely despise micromanagement and enjoy a significant level of responsibility in your tasks, Tesla is the place for you. Tesla is still a small company, so there isn't a lot of room for waste, thus meetings are short and they do whatever it takes to get the job done. They have pretty sweet merchandise and a position comes with an immense sense of pride knowing you're helping put an awesome product on the road."

Manufacturing Project Manager
in Palo, IA

"I worked at Tesla Motors for 6 yrs. The company offers a unique start-up environment that is both rewarding and very challenging. The time commitment required can border on the extreme at times. But I believe I did some of my best work while at Tesla. And worked with some of the best and brightest.I think Tesla also offers a very collaborative environment for a Mfg. engineer. You will work very closely with design engineers and have a strong voice in the design process."
