What's the worst part about the job

Ex-Tesla Employee: That was the worst part of working with Elon Musk

Like many other companies that are part of a market where there is a lot of competition, Tesla is not always an easy place to work. The job at the electric car manufacturer can demand a lot from you: from overtime to the stress of working under Managing Director Elon Musk.

Nine former employees who worked for the company between 2008 and 2019 describe what was most uncomfortable for them there. Each and every one of them has asked to be allowed to remain anonymous - for fear of Tesla's retribution.

And that's what they told us.
