Since the takeover of Twitter by Elon Musk, SpaceX employees have noticed that their working conditions have improved significantly, and they hope that this situation will continue for a long time.
It’s been a few months since Elon Musk made Twitter his priority, somewhat neglecting his other companies Tesla and SpaceX. The billionaire had to save the social network from bankruptcy, but this tense situation ultimately benefited the employees of his other companies.
Indeed, SpaceX employees said they were relieved that CEO Elon Musk is focusing on Twitter, because this led to a quieter work environment, reports Bloomberg. Former and current SpaceX workers told Bloomberg that the company’s workflow has not suffered and that workplaces show “a semblance of calm.”

SpaceX hopes Elon Musk will continue to focus on Twitter
According to anonymous sources, SpaceX employees don’t need Musk’s attention every day. Elon, for example, used to order random changes according to his preferences, whether it was an aesthetic touch-up on a rocket, whereas these can sometimes last several weeks.
The times when Musk is more directly involved with SpaceX would also often have an impact on the recruitment process, with the executive refusing to endorse potential candidates or ordering breaks when he believes the company is already overstaffed, according to the report. Now that Elon Musk no longer has time to supervise the slightest action of the employees of his aeronautical company, it seems that the environment and working conditions have drastically improved.
However, that doesn’t mean employees want to see Elon Musk go. On the contrary, they think that Musk’s role at SpaceX is essential to set company goals, like reaching Mars and helping NASA get people to the moon again. Moreover, the billionaire thinks that his giant Starship rocket will take off for the first time in March 2023.
