Anyone knows how's life work balance at Tesla and also how about the compensation and benefits. I was reading they don't match 401K and you have 3 weeks of PTO forever. Any input would be appreciated.

    I'm paid about 30% under market rates (base pay) I work a minimum of 60 hour weeks and have 90k in RSU after one year.

    If you want to sacrifice your life for nothing then Tesla is the place to be.

    Have a few friends who work at tesla. They all hate it, but won’t leave. No work life balance. Just work work.

    I heard terrible things in terms of work life balance at Tesla and SpaceX. Look at Elon, he welcomes employees to call him at 3 AM with issues... i'm sure its challenging work but once he's burnt you out, he recycles you (spacex layoffs) and fills the warm seat with a fresh body.

    No manufacturing company can pay at par with software/tech companies. Tesla/SpaceX pat is not that great for the areas (Bay Area/LA) they operate out of.

    If you can’t find anything that pays 10/7 of what you are getting, you are not probably being 30% under paid
