    Pros

    Great culture and mission. Elon is a visionary.

    Cons

    Local management plays favorites. Hierarchy (fake bosses) from people who have lateral position from you. Bullying from coworkers. If you injure yourself, you’re as good good as trash to them. No help to transition to different roles or support in wanting to transition, even though they may say otherwise. They hire you to fire you. No opportunities unless your nose turns brown.
