Is Tesla Energy ever going to blossom, or is Giga 2 as defunct as some claim? Where is the Tesla solar grid? (Lower 48 grid) I almost want to call BS, but I don't want to jump the gun. At least 90% of Tesla autos surely are charged via coal and... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Tesla, Inc
Anyone want to work for free since your likely axed by the end of the year anyway? Let's just do everything for Tesla for free. That way there are no more layoffs!
Any thoughts on what department might be hit next? I think we are (sadly) at a point where not many of us can feel safe at Tesla anymore...
I read that 800+ are getting cut at Freemont; Lot of service techs and 40 supervisors. Another 100+ from hq, and a few more from some warehouse in Cali. This is important info about coming layoffs that needed to be seen by more people. i hope... read more
Remember when working at Tesla had the added benefit of job security? It really wasn't that long ago... How did we go from that point to nobody being safe so quickly? What happened? Also, am I the only one who fears things will only get worse from... read more
There has been a lot of people talking about layoffs happening on March 20. Any official news yet? Any idea about severance package offered?
Heard today that a whole bunch of folks from Tesla's global recruiting team were cut - is this true?
It used to be that innovation would keep us profitable - when did that change to layoffs? Talk about a U-turn... Tesla used to stand for something. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore. This time it's retail, it will not be long before more of us... read more

I was working for the energy side of things here at the south Phoenix office of what used to be SolarCity. I was hired with many others in mid November of last year and apparently the office itself grew 30% in size over the last 6 months of 2018 or... read more
I was laid off after 6 years in the Energy Division. I was hired on when we were SolarCity. Over the last 2 years I was give $17,000,00 in performance bonuses for the work I did. When I was laid off, those bonuses were wiped away. So, I guess you and... read more

Gigafactory is definitely impacted so far today. We have heard mostly people who are on salary. I have heard of a few people in energy. Also there have been process technicians who were suddenly given demotions. They were technicians and got demoted... read more

Share any updates you may have about Tesla Motors Layoffs in 2019 or beyond?
The 7% is not enough so Elon is planning an additional 6% lay-off This may be the end for Tesla
I don't trust that severance package document. What can I do if they don't pay the extra 2 months like it's agreed? It says nothing how to sign up for cobra. Emails to HR will take weeks to get a reply. Funny thing is, some coworkers still going into... read more
7% impacted. Please share any information on severance, or if this move impacts your equity from vesting on maturity dates.
I have worked for Tesla for almost two years, now I am unemployed (laid off). I'm extremely bummed out. I was an Instructional Designer for the global team... In short I designed a lot of training material for everyone. Now I'm heartbroken, and I... read more
This is not new for us — we have always faced significant challenges — but it is the reality we face.
You heard it hear first !
Layoffs happened this week - it's all over the media. They have a board here but not much traction though - &spacex or thelayoff.com/spacex
Getting this message means nothing - I've been waiting for 11 weeks now and you told me it'll take up to 4 weeks to deliver - now you text me with this and when I call there is nobody who can help me answer what this text by Tesla means - waiting on... read more
This isn't good folks. Elon calling a guy's boss to silence him from bad mouthing Tesla's financial performance. I thought how they went after the "sabotuer" was heavy handed. This just truly shows how thin skinned and little of a man EM is. Yes a... read more
is anybody else nervous about your future with this company? elon is acting like jerk on twitter. do we have job security?
My dad works at Tesla, and I haven't heard anything from him about these layoffs. Reading the post from Musk on Facebook I got the impression that all the people who were getting laid off were already notified, which would mean he is safe. Is this... read more
It appears that Tesla is doing far worse than we really know
this will be lousy days, weeks, or even months for us... i think it's really cruel to let us know so many people will be laid off and leave all the details out... how is that okay??? there are people with health problems who will be affected by the... read more
Between the safety issues, the 6 day weeks with little advanced notice, and now Elon's Twitter meltdown it is sure is an interesting time to be an employee. Always good to have stuff to chat about over lunch. Anyone else hear about Elon calling the... read more

Some people are already speculating that the announced 9 percent of workforce will not be enough. He still has nearly 35,000 workers. It is hard to say how many of those are “dispensable”. At most companies, the number is measured by desperation... read more
Per Musk, significant salary and stock vesting…
Does anyone from Fremont know the production status? Is the production catching up? I think this decides wheather we all need to find another jobs in one year. Could anyone share any clues?
So, Tesla laid off a bunch of experienced workers to save some money, hired a bunch of greenhorns, and is now experiencing more delays because - wait for it - the workers are too inexperienced to have it done in time. I shouldn't be enjoying this as... read more
