Tesla’s customers are an unusually enthusiastic group, sometimes going so far as to volunteer to assist the electric-car maker’s employees in times of need.
But, as with any company, it’s difficult to understand what it’s like on the inside unless you’ve worked there yourself.
Six current and former Tesla employees told Business Insider the one thing they wish customers knew about what it’s like to work for the company. Each was granted anonymity due to a fear of reprisal from Tesla.
Here’s what the current and former employees said. (The employees pictured below are not those interviewed by Business Insider.)
Tesla did not respond to a request for comment on their responses.
