    Depends on how much you're willing to sacrifice for the mission. You'll be working 60 hrs/week, for about 60% of the TC of a FAANG job, while always wondering if you'll be laid off next week.

    Is it worth 60-80 hour work weeks with less than FANG comp?

    No. Watch the Theranos documentary. The con is up for Musk.

    It's a gamble, join now at low stock and wait for it to double/triple in time for all RSU to vest or reduce to 50-60% current price.

    Worst time to join is when stock is at all time high.

    Elon is a stable genius, but remember he's not in it to be profitable

    Tesla you could say broadly has two types of software engineering roles. One is vehicle software and the other is everything else which includes software to support manufacturing crm etc.

    Folks in vehicle software are in general paid well and in a broad sense is less than fang by maybe 10-15%. Don’t agree with the guy above who said 60% of fang. Not true at all for vehicle software. Autopilot specifically pays really well and even more than fang in many cases if you’re really good.

    As for the question as to whether or not to join, it depends highly on the team. The company is really volatile and you’ll be in for a roller coaster. It will not be a stable job and you won’t have the perks of a Facebook or google. But if you pick the right team it can be satisfying.
