    I got much more for the same level/position in 2017 (I had offers from Apple and another small startup). This is super low balled until you can justify higher salary. What department?

      That’s a great offer. Recent stock price spike must have made you a millionaire already ;)

      How do you like working at Tesla?

      Besides my stocks are 3x (almost 2 mil) overall it’s not bad. No free food, shitty cantine, good food trucks. Atmosphere is ok when you feel the vibe and understand what everyone (including your manager) expects from you. You are always expected to do more than anyone asks from you, and this is appreciated - getting top performer and promotions is not hard if you can work hard. Also, keep in mind, working hard doesn’t matter working long (more than 7-8 hours).

    Why would you compare your current TC without stock appreciation?

      Weird. Why does that matter? Literally the only thing that matters is how much hits your bank account at the end of the day. Would you feel the same way if you joined a company and the stock dropped 50%?

      I have taken into account how much amount is hitting my bank account. Tesla offer is still a good bump.

      Is WLB bad across the company or it varies from team to team? Do you know anyone who works there? Can use more data points around WLB.

      I don't. WLB at large companies will always vary from team to team.

      Two options to learn more about WLB.

      1) Glassdoor -> Tesla page -> Reviews -> filter by your job title

      2) Post another Blind question specifically abt WLB at Tesla.

    Typical big tech onsite. I had 4 coding questions (medium level) and system design. Basically all questions were derivatives of 'Cracking the Coding Interview' questions. They care a lot about getting to optimal time complexity because for us it's actually important in practice.

      TC bump is exciting. Leaving comfort zone of Microsoft is hard.

    Stock could be worth half in 6 months ... Most Tesla salaries are less than $300k, they want you to work for sunshine dollars there ...

      Yes, good point. Tesla stock is volatile (maybe more than similar companies). But that’s potentially true for Uber, Slack, Lyft etc..

      Even then he's making more though

    Big chance of Tesla stock dropping a lot after Q1 earnings, but long term I'm bullish
