    They fired them last week - a lot of them were ex Microsoft from a failed group called WPI. I think musk just had enough

      Not an insider but the Redmond factory I believe was for satellites, and based on Glenn Shotwell's recent interview sounds like that specific effort has been doomed for a little while now

    It's just all of management that got the ax so it will now be a free for all up there. Happy Hunger (Musk) Games!

    Apparently so - out of their depth is what I heard... the real skills are in SpaceX HQ.

    Well, the axed managers were deeply invested in some Microsoft's "best" practices - keeping teams in isolation, overcomplicating solutions in the name of job security, sweeping problems under the rug, etc.

    When a company is experiencing problems it's usually the employees that got laid of but SpaceX is different.

    That’s a weird thing to do surely. Normally under these circumstances, there’s just a change in leadership?

      SpaceX only hires citizens because of the domain of work.

    How’d they mess up? Is everyone in that office working on the same thing?
