Blue origin is an awesome place to work. It feels like your working for a greater good and making a difference in the world. The culture is good, benefits are good, pay is above average, and PTO is 4 weeks a year right off the bat.
Everyone gets a nice laptop and desk with two monitors. Free snacks, drinks, and good coffee. Lots of catered food for meetings.
Just like most places, you will be compensated based on your experience and what you bring to the table. People who have 1-5 years of experience will often complain about being compensated lower than someone with 10-20 years of experience.
Also your raise will depend on your performance. If you perform well and do not whine and complain then you could get $2-$6 per hour raise or 7%-14% of your salary depending.
And if you are under performing don’t expect much, $0.50-$1.00 per hour or 3%.
Too often I saw certain employees asking for more money constantly but gave no rational and did not show ambition
As the company grows larger yes some perks will go away, it’s a part of growing pains.
If you are a hard worker you will be rewarded.
Just like any company anywhere, there are good managers, bad managers and good employees and bad employees.
You can work as little or as much as you like. Work hours are flexible and you can take a day off planned or unexpected without feeling guilty. Work life balance at Blue is excellent especially when compared with Space X or Boeing.
Pay is above average, lots of PTO, flexible work hours, rewarded for hard work, job satisfaction, no micro managing, lots of freedoms, work on cool hardware, advancing humanity
Healthcare is average, some bad managers, pace of development, parking is lacking
