Attitude towards older colleagues

There aren't too many Managers that are over 40 - most are in their late 20's -early 30's.

Workplace Safety

For the most part, the office is safe, however, there have been a coupe of incidents that should have never occurred. They also need to remove all of the excess office furniture before someone gets hurt.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company is moderately diverse.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Employees should be promoted based on experience and knowledge. There are too many young managers that do not know the law or how to manage effectively. They lack the necessary training to lead a team and it's the employees who suffer.

What I like about the company

Tesla is an amazing company and it is changing the world for the better.

What I dislike about the company

Leadership isn't good.

Company Culture

If you don't fit the mold you are beneath the rest of the company

Support from management

Almost never have the support you need

Teamwork

Other areas are constantly throwing you under the bus

Freedom to work independently

Our office pretty much is on its own

Internal Communication

People only communicate to throw you under the bus or last minute

Gender Equality

They are good at trying to include women and minorities where they can.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I haven't seen anything that show exclusion of older employees

Career Development

You can move up quickly but the longevity of the job can also be very short

Overall compensation for your work

They pay well

Office / Work Environment

The office is like a family

Environmental Friendliness

As far as products they are great but excessive use of paper and building materials does not represent eco-friendly ideals that they profess

Work-Life Balance

You work nonstop and it expected that you are on call basically 24/7

Company Image

They are very conscious of their image

Job Security

The job can come and go in a flash

Handicapped Accessibility

They are as much as they can be

Workplace Safety

They are very strict on safety

Challenging Work

At first learning is a challenge but after you have learned how to install the job becomes mundane

Inclusive / Diverse

If you don't think the way that the company tells you to you are treated like an idiot outcast

Suggestions for improvement

  • Focus on results and real leaders

What I like about the company

Great pay

What I dislike about the company

Back stabbing, impulsive, not dependable, incentivize people who are power hungry
