    I have been working at Tesla full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The team surrounding you are amazing, everyone works like a trooper and give their everything. Everyone’s friendly and it’s a bit of a family vibe

    Cons

    Management push you until you brake. Overtime is expected and if you don’t do it your penalised. There’s no space made for yourself it’s all about chasing the numbers. Managers will bend over backwards to help unhappy customers out (even if the customer is unreasonable, if your a Tesla owner and want anything for free just tell the management your selling it and buying a Porsche Tycan!) But will do noting to help out a struggling staff member. Progression is next to impossible and seemingly those with personal relationships get run up the ladder.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a plan and stick to it. Constant changes don’t just frustrate customers they upset staff. Don’t blame the team when it goes wrong, more often than not it’s because you’ve moved the goal posts. Listen to those bellow you’d ideas, sometimes the people on the frontline may know more than your business management course can teach you. And trust your staff. We’re not here to take you for a ride we are here to work. Constant micromanaging and badgering does not make for productive workers

    Pros

    Fast, dynamic, open, innovative, welcoming.

    Cons

    Still creating policies, making things work with limited time, resources and money

    Advice to Management

    Remember that employees are people and whilst they give their best 100% of the time, a balance is essential and the poor attrition rates back this up.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Tesla full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity to save the future of the automotive industry

    Cons

    Revolving door policy. The business currently is not mature enough to sustain itself rather than developing and spending time investing in the people it is quick to identify weakness and point it out rather than building people strengths

    Advice to Management

    Your staff are your greatest assets if you tomorrow lies your staff you will achieve nothing build your staff morale and build your stuff comes out in their positions allowing them to achieve something greater than the individual by building a team that is felt to be supportive and have a direction that remains in the same direction and not continually changing this doesn't mean we change our methods or our short-term goals but our long-term vision needs to be clear and understood by all employees

    Very few locations around the UK to work. Things don't happen as fast as they should there are managers for managers and it takes a while for anything to get actioned at the chain is too long.

    Advice to Management

    Open more service centres in the UK, not just for workers but customers would appreciate this deeply swell having spoken to many of them.
