IT department is run by HCL

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Savannah, GA

I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time for less than a year

Prosco-workers are nice. Managers would let employee almost figure out the best approach.

ConsMost middle managers are very nice but they have no say. IT department is run by its director and controlled by HCL

Advice to Senior ManagementLet managers and employees get involved in the process of implementation. Once HCL is finished the implementation and no managers or employees master the subject, that is when the problem start.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Pomeroy engagement 2013-2014

Infrastructure Project Manager (Former Employee)
Savannah, GA

I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as a contractor for less than a year

ProsHighest standards of manufacturing and delivering high class aircraft creates professional, deliberate environment

ConsAt the tactical level i.e. day-to-day priorities change

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to improve esprit-de-corps across the nearly mutually exclusive business units i.e. design, manufacturing, IT, HR, and marketing

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Appleton site-Reasonably good experience.

Senior Aircraft Technician (Former Employee)
Appleton, WI

I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time for more than 8 years

ProsCoworkers were a good group of people. Those who actually touched an aircraft had high integrity. Decent pay, good benefits.

ConsManagers had unreasonable demands when deadlines were near. Thinly veiled demands to get it out on time regardless of safety or legality.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop requiring inspectors to oversee every single step of a technicians' operational checks. Stop adding layers of paperwork to track paperwork that is already tracked. It's not helping avoid errors. Look back to the days when things worked and do things that way again.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Gulfstream Furniture Center

Manufacturing Engineer I (Former Employee)
Savannah, GA

I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time for more than a year

ProsPaid well for level of work. Safe clean working environment. Peers and co-workers including production employees are good to work with. Production management is competent and well intentioned.

ConsManufacturing Engineering management team was inadequately trained and lacked proper credentials for leadership role which caused high employee turnover and undue stress. Unskilled abusive management only used fear as their management tool which created a hostile environment and high turnover. Staunch middle management proliferates archaic and unproductive "top down" autocratic style through organization. Decisions were made that stroked egos over the best interest of the business.

Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should discard the archaic autocratic style and hire empowered middle management with the appropriate skills and authority to administer business unit activities properly. Change the management style to utilize proven modern techniques of teamwork and reasonable accountability and peer feedback etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Its an ok place to work if your a robot

Aircraft Tech II (Former Employee)
Savannah, GA

I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time for more than a year

Prosdecent pay for middle income, decent work area, good experience and not to bad of a job

ConsManagement sucks its all about the pie chart, bar graph and the customer. You better be a robot to work here and dont talk to your coworkers because they will stab you in the back.

Advice to Senior ManagementGrow up and grow a pair, be firm on your employees but dont be an ass

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good Job, but no chance to advance your career in Appleton

Technical Specialist I (Current Employee)
Appleton, WI

I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe work/life balance is good. The pay and benefits are good.

ConsIn Engineering at the Appleton site you get stuck pretty quickly as to how far you can advance on the technical side

Advice to Senior ManagementAt the sites outside of Savannah there needs to be a way to advance as an engineer, I have seen too many of my friends leave because they had no way to advance their career unless they went to Savannah

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Awesome benefits, but the not great for the home life.

Senior Avionics Installer (Current Employee)
Savannah, GA

I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time for more than a year

ProsCompetitive and affordable health benefits. Plenty of other benefits like cheap prepaid legal, pet, and auto insurance. Starting salary is ok. Usually plenty of overtime.

ConsManagement throws their weight around too much. Contractors are treated very poorly. No work-home balance. Fire & hire a lot of contractors kind of a revolving door. Also get a sense of racism from the amount of Black contractors let go all the time. Rarely see any minorities in leadership positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to work on a better work-life balance for their employees

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
