Tesla Sales team leaving in droves?

Apr 9, 2019 20 Comments

Heard from somebody that Tesla sales team
Is leaving in droves because they hv been given a new comp package which is unrealistic and unachievable goals. This is done to make them quit so that company doesn’t have to lay them off and pay severance.

Any inside thoughts on this? True?

    I do sales. I sell stuff. It’s what I do.

    Tesla as an employer is such a scam

      Don’t forget about margin compression. Tesla could never make a 35k car profitably. They actually stopped the SR m3 before ever sourcing the cloth interiors.

      It’s not just about demand. They don’t have the margins they’ve lead their cult like investors to believe.

      SAP, you’re so right. Elon has been lying nonstop in that AI interview and that leasing propaganda. He’s about to get a margin call and he’s desperate to pump this baby.

    This is how all companies force turnover in sales.

      But...this is exactly how companies force turnovers in sales. Ask any sales person how often their numbers change and become unattainable or their region changes but their numbers don’t change to reflect the realities of their new region.

      Tesla is currently undergoing a cash crunch from a combination of musk embezzling Tesla money to bailout his illiquid solar city investment, and his lack of manufacturing knowledge causing them to retool countless times in a tent bc he thinks he’s smarter than everyone. His engineers have to work with their own systems behind his back and hid them when he comes around to get things done.

      Tesla is also delaying registration of cars so that they can resell returned lemons as news cars.

      It’s a shadiest company in this business cycle. Theranos on wheels.

      They were, but then they reversed that after someone told Musk how leases work after he got off his latest drug trip.

      Now they’re slowing going through liquidations where they can. Reducing sales staff and closing service centers, and stopping gigafactory capex

    Where is the board of directors? Musk is delusional. Don’t forget also that he took over and pushed out the original founders

      The board is completely subservient to Musk. They all have borrowed against their shares and are on too deep. Except maybe Ellison since he’s a new arrival

      Nice to have someone from Panasonic here.

      Panasonic invested billions in $TSLA on the basis of lies and in exchange for a massive take-or-pay contract. Elon can't take and he sure as shit can't pay. Panasonic can turn out the lights on him tomorrow. Elon is begging for somebody to do it. Might as well be them.

    They also pressured doctors to change medical diagnosis so people wouldn’t get workers comp, according to a whistleblower.
