Summary List Placement

As Tesla prepares to face competition from a new generation of electric-vehicle startups preparing to roll out a host of exciting new vehicles, data Elon Musk’s company has shared with the US government provides a few hints into how it works to recruit talent away from the likes of Rivian and Lucid Motors — and keep its employees from going elsewhere.

The US Office of Foreign Labor Certification requires companies to disclose compensation for permanent and temporary employees from outside the US to ensure the firms aren’t paying them less than the average wage earned by their peers. Tesla’s filings give a sense of how much the electric-car maker pays for some positions.

The salary data Business Insider analyzed is from 2020 and represents either an average or range among employees included in Tesla’s disclosures.
