SpaceX lays off 10% of staff by email as Falcon Heavy, BFR, and Starlink ramp up

In an unusual move for a privately-held company that raised $500M-750M in the last six months alone and is the 2nd or 3rd most-valuable VC-backed entity in the United States (~$30B), SpaceX abruptly announced a decision to lay off ~10% of its workforce of 7,000+, effective immediately as of January 11th.

Although layoffs are often a necessary evil in particularly competitive industries or underperforming companies, SpaceX is not exactly a strong fit for either characteristic. The company also opted for a truly bizarre and impersonal layoff method so unfriendly that several employees described it feeling like a corporate “Hunger Games” or a “purge”.S

Over the past six or so months, a number of reports – most recently confirmed by SEC filings showing ~$270M of $500M raised – noted that SpaceX was seeking considerable investment and capital influx in the form debt (a leveraged loan) and equity sales to the tune of $250M (loan) and $500M (equity) after some back and forth with investors and banks and additional fine-tuning. The terms of SpaceX’s 2018 fundraises are unknown but Bloomberg did acquire information suggesting that the company was only profitable or break-even with after a range of very specific and dubious accounting decisions. Put more bluntly, SpaceX did not demonstrate actionable profitability to investors during their 2018 pitches.

“[SpaceX showed] positive earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization of around $270 million for the twelve months through September … But that’s because it included amounts that customers had prepaid and because it excluded costs related to non-core research and development. Without those adjustments, earnings for the period were negative.” – Bloomberg, 19 November 2018

However, the fact of the matter is that SpaceX’s profitability is and has long been nearly irrelevant as long as the company was still able to convince investors that it was wisely investing its funds in potentially revolutionary present and future projects like Falcon Heavy, reusable rockets, BFR, and Starlink. Essentially, if SpaceX could show that they could be profitable if they wanted to be, investors were willing to swallow unusual risks in return for prestige and a potentially vast payout down the road. The decision to lay off 10% of the company’s workforce immediately after raising anywhere from $500-750M could indicate that layoffs were either directly or indirectly related to the terms of its fundraising rounds.J

When you’re talking about 850 layoffs across the company, there’s no way even the best company at hiring/firing decisions is going to avoid making tons of mistakes about who they kept and who they let go.1111:06 PM – Jan 12, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacySee Jonathan A. Goff’s other Tweets

Notably, some basic back-of-the-napkin estimates would suggest that cutting 10% (say 700-800 employees) at an average salary (or equivalent hourly pay) of ~$90K/year* with an average overhead of 30% would reduce SpaceX’s operational costs by $80-100M annually, potentially enough to sway the above financial account enough to show a small annual profit or at least allow the company to break even. Put frankly, $80-100M per year is not nearly enough to plausibly fund SpaceX’s BFR and Starlink development programs at anything close to the ambitious schedules CEO Elon Musk has laid out for the company, including orbital BFR launches as early as 2020 and getting Starlink to initial operational status around the same time (2020-2021).

However, saving ~$100M annually might be enough to sway investors that are less prestige-hungry and more conservative to bet on a successful but still relatively high-risk launch company. To be even more generous, one could assume that ~800 employees were strategically cut to remove entire internal groups or departments no longer needed, perhaps doubling or tripling the annual savings to $200M-$300M, still not even close to enough money to fund more than 10-20% of expected BFR and Starlink capex.

In September 2018, CEO Elon Musk estimated the new rocket would cost ~$5B to develop (no less than $2B, no more than $10B) on its own, entirely excluding the $10B COO/President Gwynne Shotwell estimated SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet constellation would cost to complete in April 2018. Working on profits of less than $300M a year, it would take SpaceX decades of stable earnings to foot that collective $12B-20B bill.

“To continue delivering for our customers and to succeed in developing interplanetary spacecraft and a global space-based Internet, SpaceX must become a leaner company. Either of these developments, even when attempted separately, have bankrupted other organizations. This means we must part ways with some talented and hardworking members of our team. We are grateful for everything they have accomplished and their commitment to SpaceX’s mission. This action is taken only due to the extraordinarily difficult challenges ahead and would not otherwise be necessary.” – SpaceX COO & President Gwynne Shotwell

At least 1 in 10 employees seen here were likely fired on Friday, January 11th. (SpaceX)

A NEW LEVEL OF “COUNTERINTUITIVE”

Regardless of whether SpaceX had sincere and angelic motivations for these layoffs (they probably did not), the single worst aspect of the whole ordeal is how the company managed it and communicated with employees. According to comments and hints from a dozen or more employees, the process began with next to no official warning around lunchtime on Friday, January 11th. Employees attended an all-hands meeting where they were told in frank terms that a major portion of the company – those deemed to be lower performers – would be laid off within 24 hours. All 7000+ employees were told around the same time.

The catch: nobody was told who exactly would be cut – instead, SpaceX would force every single employee to leave work early on Friday and spend 12-24 hours in total uncertainty until an unspecified time on Saturday, when they were – in theory – supposed to receive an email telling them whether or not they still had a job waiting for them on Monday. In many dozens of cases, email notifications failed or workers were forced to call a number provided by SpaceX and ask the company themselves if they still had jobs, not even receiving the absolute minimum courtesy of some sort of call or notification. Whether the given employee was five months or five years senior, the process was identically debasing and insulting – ~24 hours of avoidable existential uncertainty followed by an automated email or phone call that you had to make yourself.

Nobody was offered an explanation as to why they were chosen out of all SpaceX employees. Workers who had given their heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears to SpaceX for more than half a decade were – very literally – fired by automated email without the simplest explanation and told to not return to work unless returning company property, effective immediately. Thanks to California’s WARN Act protections, all laid off employees will thankfully be paid for two additional months (until March 11, 2019) to support job searching and re-training.

It’s impossible to know who exactly within SpaceX thought this method of layoffs was in any way ethically acceptable or could not at least have been replaced by something a modicum more humane. It’s equally unclear why these layoffs are happening now, and SpaceX’s official statement appears to be an unsatisfactory half-answer at best. To the 90% that remain, one can only wish them the best and hope that those 10% cut from the company were not all as essential as some of them seem to have been. In the meantime, it appears that SpaceX will continue to push ahead in attempts to improve Falcon 9 reusability, field the next Falcon Heavy, build out and launch Starlink, and develop BFR.

Some of those at SpaceX responsible for enabling the company’s many, many extraordinary achievements hopefully still remain and will be able to ensure that the company keeps heading down the right paths in spite of major speedbumps like this. If you or anyone you know knows someone who works at SpaceX or have been inspired by the company’s mission and many successes in spite of the odds, make sure to be cognizant and appreciative of the tens or hundreds of thousands of rewarded (and unrewarded) hours of hard work that go into every single major and minor SpaceX achievement. To any employees reading, thank you for your dedication and keep fighting the hard fight.

  35. Create Energy When Talking On Your Phone. More and more people are afraid that they will have to give up some of the household appliances they have so much longed for because the energy consumption is far above their financial possibilities.Thus, after months or even years of saving money in order to purchase what they want and like the most, many individuals see the need of getting rid of them because they no longer can afford paying huge electricity bills.Most of the times giving up those electrical appliances also means giving up comfort and turning back to a lifestyle characteristic to the past years, it means frustration and sorrow and sometimes even hours wasted by doing by hand something which an electrical appliance can do in a few minutes.If your electricity bill is sucking out your last pennies, then you probably know what I am talking about.However, this situation which for many people seems hopeless can be solved in a much easier and comfortable way.All you need in order to diminish your energy bill is another source of energy, a cheap and easy to use source that will provide you with enough energy to power small appliances and significantly lower the amount of power you use from the national or local electricity provider.This power source, which can represent your salvation, is the banal phone line.Each and every day, power runs through the phone cables, power which is mainly used for keeping the phone working and sustaining the conversation.During the day, this power is used, as people are talking on the phone, but during the late hours of the night the number of people using the phone line is relatively low, so that you can gather all that energy and use it to power your appliances.This energy is included in your phone bill, so there is something you pay for, thus you have all the right to use something for which you pay.To fully take advantage of this type of power you will need a device which will gather the energy from the phone and make it ready for use.The good thing about this device is that, even though it is more efficient during the night, it can also be used during the day or even when you are speaking on the phone.You will see that in a few months you will be able to use all your appliances and still save money on your electricity bill to fulfill some of your dreams.
