Top Employees Leave Blue Origin Due to Leadership Disappointment and Escalating Conflict with NASA

More than a dozen senior executives and senior engineers have left space company Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin this summer, CNBC reports. Employees who left the company did not provide specific reasons for their decisions, but did mention that they were frustrated with Blue Origin's executive leadership and slow bureaucratic structure.

Blue Origin itself focuses on the fact that in 2020 its staff has grown by 850 people, and in 2021 by another 650. Nevertheless, the company is leaving the most valuable personnel. It is reported that some of the departed engineers were part of the team that is developing the lunar lander. New Shepard Senior Vice President Steve Bennet, Head of Space Mission Support Jeff Ashby, Senior Design Engineer Power Plant Dave Sanderson, Lead Software Engineer New Shepard Huong left Blue Origin Huong Vo, rocket engine engineer Gerry Hudak and many others.

Blue Origin, headquartered in Kent, Washington, employs about 4,000 people. It is reported that ten days after Bezos's flight into space, Blue Origin has given all of its staff members a $ 10,000 bonus. The company said the bonus was intended as a thank you for reaching a milestone in launching humans into space. Some employees interpreted the move as a desperate attempt by management to encourage talented employees to stay with the company, as many employees filed for layoffs after launch.

It is reported that 85% of Blue Origin employees are unhappy with CEO Bob Smith. In contrast, at SpaceX, according to surveys, 91% of employees are satisfied with their CEO Elon Musk.

Blue Origin has a number of challenges that are forcing employees to look for a better place to work. First, the company is in a protracted conflict with NASA, which awarded the contract to send people to the moon to Elon Musk's SpaceX. Secondly, the company faces constant delays in the implementation of its projects. New Shepard first brought a man into space only this summer, although it was originally planned that this would happen at the end of 2017. The reusable New Glenn rocket has never been launched and is still in development, although its launch was scheduled for late 2020. This despite the fact that Blue Origin received $ 255.5 million from the US Air Force in aid to develop the rocket.
