Musk shakes up SpaceX in race to make satellite launch window: sources | Reuters Oct 2018
"Within hours of landing [in June 2018], Musk had fired at least seven members of the program’s senior management team at the Redmond, Washington, office, the culmination of disagreements over the pace at which the team was developing and testing its Starlink satellites, according to the two SpaceX employees with direct knowledge of the situation. "

"But the program is struggling to hire and retain staff, the employees said"

"Among the managers fired from the Redmond office was SpaceX Vice President of Satellites Rajeev Badyal, an engineering and hardware veteran of Microsoft Corp and Hewlett-Packard, and top designer Mark Krebs, who worked in Google’s satellite and aircraft division, the employees said."

"The management shakeup followed in-fighting over pressure from Musk to speed up satellite testing schedules, one of the sources said."
