    None of the above needs to be done by living and sleeping in the factory.

    You really believe it was all just for show? Those experienced hired managers can’t deliver enough model3s and left, then he takes over and how things turned out lately? If he doesn’t do any actual work in that factory, then perhaps he is the greatest showman ever!

    Anyway, besides, typical CEOs probably have no ideas what they’re doing other than just try to maximize next quarters profit by laying us suckers off.

    Considering the dumb things that Musk has done that could have seriously hurt the company recently?

    Yeah. Its all PR stunts. They always happen when the company is in the news for whatever their most recent failure is.

    Musk is definitely not mistake free, there were definitely certain PR stunts.

    The Thai rescue incident was really pointless and waste of effort, but I can understand why he was mad about that, but he shouldn’t have escalated further like that...

    As for the tweet that cost him the chairman title and $20 mil, well, it was worth it to fuck with the annoying short seller in his opinion..,

    He’s only human and can make errors and have emotions. Considering how sleep deprived he is...

    In the end, you’ll be unwise to write him off. He pretty much always failed to deliver his promises on time(according to his own optimistic target), but he always end up delivering ahead of everybody else.

    Man’s got amazing work ethics I tell you. Unfortunately his family end up suffering tremendously. So I would not want to be his wife or kids..., but working for/with him should be cool.

    He’ll probably fire me pretty quickly because I won’t be able to keep up with him...
