At Tesla, Returning to the Office Creates New Problems (Hint: Lack of desks and parking spaces)

The sudden influx of workers has led to issues. Many of these employees have been working from home since the start of the pandemic, but the number of Tesla staff has doubled since the pre-pandemic era, and the company wasn’t ready for everyone returning at once.

Some of the biggest problems were a lack of desks, inadequate seating, and not enough parking spaces. There have also been complaints about weak Wi-Fi connections.
