      Can confirm the same thing about Tesla. Working 60h for paltry pay. Got two offers from them, and after the second one they told me they'd "throw my resume in the trash next time they saw it".

      Some don't mind working 14hr a day 6 days a week, rarely seeing friends, family and having no hobbies outside of work. All while being berated for not getting enough done. This is normal, right?
      Almost all products bearly work. Example: never has a product left the the factory that didn't need rework, Never!
      As a tech company we joke about technology's deficiency because were to cheap to buy equipment.

      Because it’s none of your business. Op might want to work on something cool and be part of something extra ordinary.

    Funny. I’m paid pretty well, am challenged daily, love the mission, the products (not just cars), and never exceed 45 hours per week for 5 years now. Every company has naysayers and they’re always the loudest.

      It’s funny how little we know about the TC of Tesla folks — some are paid peanuts, while others seem to be paid market value. For those of us interested/curious, can tesla folks on this thread share their position, yearly refreshers and starting RSUs?

      @qbfU63 thanks for your response! Do you work on Hardware/Software teams - Can you comment if you’re on the autopilot team?

    Work here if you are passionate about the company and the mission. But what everyone else said up top is true.
