Indian engineer let go from Tesla after receiving promotion a month prior, his brother revealed "cold email" from Elon Musk

An Indian computer professional who had worked for the company for seven years was one of the victims. Her dreams were dashed, though, when she got a “cold email” from Tesla telling her that her job was being terminated because of reorganization.

Elon Musk’s electric car company, Tesla, has been under fire lately for layoffs, especially after giving workers promotions just a few weeks prior. A wave of layoffs spearheaded by Tesla began in April 2024, affecting up to 21,473 workers from 50 tech businesses. With this action, Tesla aimed to cut about 10% from its total workforce.

An Indian computer professional who had worked for the company for seven years was one of the victims. She had been promoted a month earlier and was excited about moving from New Jersey to Washington, DC. Her dreams were dashed, though, when she got a “cold email” from Tesla telling her that her job was being terminated because of reorganization.

Jatin Saini, the brother of the techie, posted the tale on LinkedIn and expressed his surprise at the lack of openness and compassion throughout the procedure. He emphasized the psychological toll on his sister, who, despite years of commitment to the business, felt alienated. Saini criticized Tesla’s layoff policy, arguing that a more forceful approach would be preferable to a string of lesser layoffs.

Saini included screenshots of the “cold email” his sister got from Tesla in his post. He claimed that his sister had worked for Elon Musk’s company for seven years, but that last Friday, she was abruptly let go. “Unfortunately, as a result, your position has been eliminated by this restructuring,” the message stated.

Saini wrote in his article that his sister had been enjoying a promotion and was eager to move from New Jersey to Washington, DC, only a month earlier. Her aspirations were crushed, though, on May 3, 2024, when she found that her workplace access card had been canceled when she arrived.

“She’s not by herself. Tesla laid off 16,000 workers on April 15. Then, fifteen days later, they let go of five hundred more workers. She received the email two days ago, along with 75% of her colleagues, according to Saini.

“She’s been with Tesla for over half a decade, and to find out like this…When you can’t enter your own office, your entire team is down and out, and your ID card is thrown away,” he stated, adding, “They made her feel like an outsider with just 1 email.”

Saini questioned the process’s lack of openness, compassion, and thoughtfulness in his piece. In his opinion, “the principle of ‘cutting once and cutting deep’ makes more sense than a series of smaller layoffs” when it comes to layoffs.

“It serves as a crystal-clear reminder of the price that business decisions carry,” Saini said.

Tesla is under pressure to keep its place in the electric vehicle market, and its layoffs coincide with difficulties in sales and competitiveness.
