“Distraction and shame”: SpaceX employees ask that the company demarcate Elon Musk

Elon Musk ‘s erratic behavior is taking its toll on SpaceX employees .


Elon Musk is one of the most recognizable figures in the tech space, leading companies like Tesla and SpaceX .

Musk ‘s profile has made many people believe in the mission of his companies, but his antics, increasingly frequent on Twitter , also take their toll on employees.

An internal letter sent by SpaceX employees to top company executives accuses Elon Musk of being a “distraction and embarrassment.”

” Elon ‘s conduct in the public sphere is a frequent source of distraction and embarrassment for us, particularly in recent weeks,” explains an excerpt from the letter published by Reuters.

“As our most prominent CEO and spokesperson, Elon is seen as the face of SpaceX . Each tweet he sends de facto becomes a public statement by the company,” the letter expands.

The demands of SpaceX employees

The letter calls for SpaceX to quickly part ways with Elon Musk ‘s personal brand .

“The leadership shares the responsibility to make SpaceX a great place to work,” the letter demands.

Employees point to SpaceX ‘s policy of not having ” assholes ” or unpleasant people, something they believe Elon Musk has become with his constant attacks on other people on Twitter and the recent accusation of workplace harassment a few years ago to a flight attendant. the company.

Most likely , Elon Musk will respond, as always, via Twitter, a company he is in the process of buying.
