Constructive Feedback From Tesla Motors Employees

  • What's going wrong and how can it be improved?
    Associates don't take pride on their work for lack of appreciation.
    Review from Product DeptAnonymous ReviewPosted 20 days ago
  • What needs to change to make the company culture better?
    Lately we haven't had enough supervision so everyone is being stressed out tring to pull the extra weight around. It's a domino effect, we make it happen for a while but it never last. But the worst part is upper management barley takes responsibility for their mistakes
    Review from Product DeptAnonymous ReviewPosted 20 days ago
  • Why do you feel undervalued and what would make you feel better about your compensation?
    As a production associate I feel like we do most of the work but get paid the least. If they would focus on the associates that really work and promote more of us we would feel more valued as associates. The compensation only motivates us for so long. We need more to look forward too
