Red flag indeed. You do mot want to go into a job with little support from your manager. You should see if you can find someone who has worked there for insight to the culture. Are you applying for automotive designer position? There are several areas ( clay modeling, Cad drawing, etc. I worked in automotive managing concept cars. It is a awesome experience. But I am nit familiar with Tesla.

You shouldn’t want to work for someone who doesn’t want to take the time to answer your questions. How are you supposed to feel confident in taking a role when you are left with questions. There is a better situation out there for you. Skip over this one.

Any pros/cons of not having some sort of central UX team to collaborate with?

They are not lying about growth, but that growth will be extremely painful. There are some people who would prosper in the role, but most will find it difficult.

How do I know whether they are genuinely trying to promote me and can't, versus them stringing me along for as long as possible?

This is such a basic question, but what’s the best way to give my two weeks and not have things be completely awkward at work? I’m leaving to do the same type of work, but at a firm that I worked for in law school and that I know has a much better culture. My boss has a tendency to be passive aggressive towards people that are leaving and given that my office is right next to hers I’m worried my last two weeks are going to be so uncomfortable. Suggestions/advice?

Hi all, I would appreciate your thoughts - I’ve been really struggling to adjust to long-term WFH and just have been extremely unhappy with it (feelings of isolation, burnout, hopelessness). I realize I’m not spending time on commute and such, not wearing uncomfortable clothes, but I’m still really miserable.
