    McKinsey & Company

    Many of us gained net worth in 2020 by having a stable job and investing in the stock market (some gained a lot by investing in Tesla, ARK etc.). In the meantime, millions of people lost jobs and could not afford rent (and these same people are unlikely to have benefited from the stock market). How do you feel about it? I’m not expecting any “correct answer” as I don’t think there is one correct answer. Just how people actually feel about it

      Pros

      The mission, the product, is all amazing. It is awesome telling people you work or worked for Tesla, they all have an opinion on it, it is such an exciting business. This is why people excuse and rationalise the poor treatment of employees because the news and people you talk to make you feel like it's the best job in the world.

      Cons

      People who want to make the company better push boundaries, top candidates either leave out of frustration or are weeded out by those feeling threatened above them. This means the European middle and upper management positions are filled with stagnant and redundant individuals who are there out of tenure, without the experience required to achieve anything meaningful, spineless to make any change from the fear they will get fired before their shares vest. This fear is partly down to Elon's historic tendency to fire the European heads every 6 months. There is no career development, the company doesn't know what its structure will look like next quarter let alone where the individuals might be. The HR department is shockingly terrible on every level, mishandling cases, ill-informed and wholly unprofessional. Tesla doesn't care about its staff, its exponential growth means it is not required to do so. That is apparent if you ask any employee, even the happy ones. The number of area managers who have been signed off work from stress this year in the UK is the tip of the iceberg. There is next to nothing positive to say about the culture, at least not that is filtered down from the top. Small teams build strong friendships, but it is not led or influenced by the company leaders.
