Thread regarding Tesla Motors layoffs

Performance Review Based Layoffs

Disclaimer - I am not with tesla. I work for a company that frequently has layoffs and a lively board here. I am just chiming in on the recent news that Tesla has been laying off folks recently. Anyhow, the company claims that the cuts are 'performance review' based and that they are getting rid of low performers. If you are with Tesla continue reading: this is just a begining. They always start with this, they will tell you that low performers will be affected, but they will force managers to go hard on workers and to expand the group of low performers. Once they are done with this they will offer a voluntary separation program (VSP) where you get paid to leave, so if you are planning to leave it'd be good to take money and jet like ASAP.

Since 'low performers" and VSP folks will not fill the quota, they will start laying off in waves - they will plan out based on impacts and start cutting into the meat of the company. Now, you guys may be able to turn things around (what I think about the prespect to do so is irrelevant) which might prevent the last stage - we'll have to wait and see how things play ot for your guys at Tesla.

Nonetheless, hang in there and good luck.

Sometimes your name gets put on a list to be let go by a Senior VP who is cooking the books and wants to make sure there is no one that can expose them in a corporate audit or investigation if questioned. It happened to me and a few others, we were top performers too. The sad part is the company caught the sleazy SVP red handed not even a year after we had been let go. Do you think the company called us back to apologize and offer us our jobs back? Not a chance. This type of thing happens at big companies all the time.

"performance review" layoffs are an outright lie.....just like the propaganda about the amount of cars being produced, the solar roof being produced , the storage batteries being produced and sold....

After the first sentence, I already knew that OP was an Intel idiot who doesn‘t understand how Intel does performance management. And I was right.

Avoid Tesla. Such company just kick high pay employees out so they can hire new hands and pay less. The worst part, they claim you are underperformed so you can never find another job. Son of a B!
