Why would Tesla have trouble selling vehicles? Among the most profitable companies in the auto industry are BMW and Porsche, not GM and Chrysler. They've been around for >100 years. I "beginner's" BMW cost as much as a Model 3, Porsche is as much as model S.pizza8822 wrote: ↑Tue Nov 06, 2018 2:10 pmI'm just a random person on the internet, but I would not recommend to a close friend/family member to go work for Tesla. I find the entire business model of Telsa extremely shaky. If there is a recession anytime soon, Telsa will likely have trouble selling vehicles, driving cash flow declines. This could lead to many layoffs. The company doesn't have enough money to handle a recession in my estimation. At the very least, think hard about if you are comfortable working for a company with a questionable financial position.
Tesla offers a major value proposition to the buyer. Real or not, it helps selling vehicles.
As for OP's question: you have to see an offer first. Only because a recruiter called it doesn't mean anything.

It is 5:30 as I type this. I consider it a better use of my time to hang out online than to drive home in this traffic. If I leave right now, I will be home by 6:30. I don't live all that far from work.
If the "home by 5:40" part is important to you, the Bay Area is probably not for you.
Full disclosure: I view it as likely I won't be living in California in three years' time.
I work in Fremont and commute about 15 miles. Takes me over an hour to get home and that is leaving at 4pm. Been here my entire life but I don't see us living here in 3 years time either. Cost of living and traffic being the top reasons.
That is because you come home at 4 PM. PM! It won't be the case for the OP
