      I know, it’s because I work at NG. I’ve lost all motivation in life

      Among coworkers people generally have the nicest things to say about NG. Compared to other defense contractors.

      ^ you definitely only have older friends then. New grads, junior to mid level employees hate it

      Left a while ago, but I don’t see them growing substantially in the near future.

      Multiple lawsuits attacking the 6% commission structure.

      There is nothing new or novel about the tech. It’s just a bunch of tools that exist elsewhere rebuilt and bundled internally.

      No clear plans for exponential growth.

    Lots of irons in the fire so not much to speak of today, but Blue will be crazy busy in 3 years (BE-4, New Glenn, maybe New Shepard program, Blue Moon, whatever else they cook up). Well funded seed money and launch/engine biz will self fund after over the startup hump.

    The only possible scenario for Blue Origin to close shop is (God forbid) what happened with Paul Allen's company - the man died and the company is about to be liquidated.

    BO will definitely survive as long as Bezos is around. Can't say the same for Virgin. WLB is definitely BO then VO then SpaceX. Same goes for pay.
