Question about English (US)

I wonder whether there is a significant difference in meaning between these sentences below.

1. The boss wanted those employees out after they messed up the project.

2. The boss wanted those employees to be out after they messed up the project.

I think "want someone out" is the informal way of saying "want someone to be out" and there is no significant difference in meaning.

Is my thinking right?
