Oct 17 - Tesla fired hundreds of workers after bad performance reviews
 

 
Tesla recently fired scores of employees after annual performance reviews.

A former Tesla employee told Reuters "about 400 people" in a range of positions were shown the door. As Business Insider's Bryan Logan reported, Tesla declined to confirm how many people were fired. The dismissals happened just after Tesla CEO Elon Musk said there were "production bottlenecks" on the Model 3 car, Logan reported.

If your reaction on hearing this news is to freak out and to wonder whether your own job is at stake, don't. Business Insider spoke to experts who said the firings at Tesla are hardly indicative of a trend in the workplace.

As national workplace expert and bestselling author Lynn Taylor put it, the possibility of being fired when you work for a company like Tesla "kind of goes with the territory."

Taylor explained that because Tesla is a uniquely innovative and disruptive company, "there are going to be probably more shifts in employment levels" than at, say, a century-old company.

"The opportunities are so great there," Taylor said of Tesla. "You can choose another industry that makes lightbulbs for the automotive industry for the last 50 years, with slight tweaks, or you can be in an industry that reinvents itself every year."

Taylor also caveated that we don't yet know whether the firings were preceded by a paper trail that revealed evidence of poor performance. In other words: We shouldn't necessarily a.ssume that the employees who were let go were completely surprised.

Michael Kerr, an international business speaker and author of "The Humor Advantage," pointed out that many companies — including some Fortune 500 companies — are ditching traditional performance reviews entirely. As Business Insider has previously reported, IBM is moving toward more regular feedback and "coaching," as opposed to managing, employees.

Tesla's firings en masse after poor performance reviews are "not even close to a trend or starting a trend," Kerr said. "I don't think anybody should be worried — unless you work for Tesla."

That said, Kerr added:

"If it does make employees nervous or concerned, then I think the obvious thing to do is to make sure you sit down with your boss right away and just have an honest, candid conversation.

"Say, 'Look, I saw this story. It's a little disconcerting. Do you think that anything like that could happen in our company? Do I have anything to be worried about? What can I do to make sure I continue to be a valued a.sset in this organization?'"

Good point, but what is the alternative? Starving children? Disease riddled children? What's the point of bringing in a child u can't care for?
Birth control is def an option, but would the sterilization be forced upon their populace or do they have a choice? If so, then why stop fu*kin with him?

Just interested, never heard that til u mentioned it.

They need to fire Tesla designers for the POS cars they make. I test drove a P85D when it was new and the build quality was abysmal. Large uneven panel gaps, atge use of switch gear from a Dodge Dart, and rattles. The reason why the cars are really delayed is because the make stupid engineering design design decisions like the stupid and faulty falcon doors and floating seats that don't fold and move unnecessarily in the Model X.

Yeah you right just think its absurd that he is advocating these sort of extremes that basically dehumanize you

And nobody is being forced (that i know of) but they make it very atrractive to poor people by offering money in exchange for going thru with it but the types of conditions these procedures take place in are embarrasing and i heard of females dying months after leavin the clinic

Its like the opposite of what they doing in denmark and sweden where ur paid and encouraged to have kids

where's the proof, receipts, paper trail, interviews, articles, sources to these claims - because you're claiming a lot and I don't think your're providing the full story.

Good. People either incapable of the job and/or lazy SHOULD be let go. I can't stand workers who produce terribly, but somehow still have a job.

I think Elon promised too much

I hate when people lose jobs it effects so much the kids, the lifestyle, relationships ect.

You can be apart of a team working your a.ss off and get let go. Trying to find a rewarding career that pays as it should is hard enough.

More CEO's should be fired more than anything.

Tesla is already a heavily subsidized company. Tax payers are funding projects, whether they like it or not, to push theoretical models for an electric car future. If you add unionization on top of that, you have drastic increases in costs, which make this technology that much harder to spread, and you ultimately pass on those costs to both taxpayers and consumers.

Besides that, the article said it was based on performance reviews which showed production bottlenecks, not activism. If Tesla is going to be taking taxpayer handouts, I'd at least like to see them try to run an efficient, lean operation that doesn't tolerate losers, slackers and/or the incompetent.

The truth about "dehumanizing" is that it's just a feeling. Without humans, there is no right or wrong, but with humans, it's "what we feel" is right or wrong. The term "survival of the fittest" will stay relevant. Funny how people think they're so special just because they have a higher level of conciousness when in reality (as George Carlin put it) one day the earth will shake us off like a bad case of flees. Not saying I'm a super cold person although I do believe only the strong should survive. But if you're in a place of great power, and you're not using that power to help mankinds wellbeing, you're a POS. Look around, look at capitalism and our way of life, POS's own the world and don't care, too many people choose making money overall, even if it screws up someone else's life. Wish things were better though for us all. Not sure if you heard of Peter Joseph but the man does make some good points.

Why is this surprising if its a factory most jobs will be automated soon which human sure then switch our brains into something more productive like the fu*king antibiotic beginning to be absolute and stop fu*king working or like we still depending on fossil fuel ahh heres another us being stuck on one fu*king planet where there are billions and trillions of them. Instead of worrying about when the fu*king world going to end we need to be worried about how to expand it and making our lives better but we are too busy worried about robots taking over. That's just like god worrying about us destroying him if a god exist...........RANT OVER
