I need advice about working in Tesla. I see lot of negative stories on Twitter that Tesla going bankruptcy. Not selling enough cars. Should I be concerned about joining? @tesla

      Not true for many if not most SWE teams! Many SWEs I know work 40-50h/week, though I have heard of those in more critical teams working 60-70h/week

    Do you want your TC to be cut in half with a single tweet?

    Your offer is pretty low, I would expect 300k or higher, rest I would not listen to people who are not at Tesla much about the work culture, hours, layoffs etc.

    1. You will not get 300k base at Tesla unless you are at director level. 2. The reason you would probably want to be at Tesla is the stock / RSU. It is projected to grow to around $500. 3. It will look good on your resume.
    I agree with others - you will work long hours. My SO is part of the executive leadership at Tesla, so fortunately I am able to get plenty of insights.

      I make way more than 300k at Tesla TC and I am no where close to bring a director. If you are talking about just salary and not stocks then I understand but when at current value most people 2 levels below director make 300k and above.

      Correction: I was just talking about 300K base.

    Culture seems erratic, people getting fired and orgs being down sized very often. My friend lost his job during recent layoffs 🙁

      Run. New hires make more than that with better WLB than Tesla.

      Musk’s koolaid aint worth that much of a lowball.

    Tesla sounds like a bad idea...get all the negatives of a musk company without the upside. At least your equity is real, though. Ymmv
