Bloomberg has an exclusive article titled "Want Elon Musk to Hire You at Tesla? Work for Apple" in which it's claimed that "Tesla has hired more workers from Apple than from anyplace else."

It's an article worth a full read, so we won't spoil it here.

Here are a few highlights:

  • has hired at least 150 former Apple employees, more than from any other company, even carmakers.
  • The former Apple staffers work in many areas of the 6,000-employee automaker, including engineering and law.
  • Employees who have worked at Apple say their decision to join Tesla was based on its cars and its CEO.
  • Musk says Apple has been trying to poach Tesla employees, too, offering $250,000 signing bonuses and 60 percent salary increases.
Thus far, Apple has not had much success in recruiting talent from Tesla.  According to Elon Musk:

“Apple tries very hard to recruit from Tesla.  But so far they’ve actually recruited very few people.”
