    Pros

    Job security, great benefits and great coworkers.

    Cons

    Growing so fast. Everything changes often, and very BUSY!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on training employees you do have already. Work on retention, rather than growing. Too much knowledge is lost by moving people around continuously.

    Pros

    Great Product line
    Well kept facilities/Climate controlled facilities
    Good Pay For The Area
    Advancement is there for those willing to put the time in
    Culturally diverse workplace
    Great benefits package

    Cons

    Traffic of surrounding roads
    Better screening of incoming personnel to determine job abilit
    Better communication among STMS,Leads, and Technicians
    LISTEN to the technicians when they have a suggestion.
    Good ole' boy system still in play
    Hold EVERYONE accountable for their actions, new hire to senior hire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the techs working the planes, don't just nod your head and pretend. Most of the techs are of a new generation with technology upper management doesn't want to work with. There are alot of procedures and processes that can be streamlined, making the workplace more efficient.

    Pros

    Management really cares about employees. Continuous improvement by employees is promoted. Respect, trust, etc.. Is a key point for all personnel. The culture is always seeking better and improved methods and relationships.

    Cons

    Compensation and benefits are very good. Promotions go to the most qualified employees. The pressure of meeting schedules with limited espouses make it challenging at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in resources to make it easier on employees. Provide tools as required, not so dependent on one year payback.

    Pros

    Gulfstream really cares about it's employees by offering lots of perks. Competitive pay, benefits and interesting work. Great growth available if you work for it.

    Cons

    Old school business model, could be more progressive. Hardcore corporate culture - strict dress code, strict schedule, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow office culture with some progressive moves such as relaxing certain policies and invite new ideas like working remotely.

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to promote from within. Great health benefits. Everyone knows everyone else.

    Cons

    If you don't work at HQ it is sometimes tough to get promotions. There are a lot of work silos which brings workplace politics with it. Sometimes too conservative with employees. Technology is still lagging 10 years behind. Offices very often are crowded and don't have windows.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some more money on creating an office environment that they would actually want to spend their weeks in, not cubicles that are overflowing with people.

    Financial Reporting Intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace

    Pros

    The internship program in the financial reporting department was great. It provides exposure to many different areas. I learned a lot from all my fellow employees. Even as an intern I had the ability to pick my own work schedule within reason. I was able to work half days on Fridays which is a huge plus.

    Cons

    The only con was the commute after work. There are thousands of employees that get off work at the same time so the roads and highways get very congested after work.

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great competitive salary
    Friendly environment
    Minimal supervision

    Cons

    As an intern, I felt like I wasn't taught or challenged enough. It was a great place to get my foot in the door to the professional world, but I would've liked more work. This can be a pro though since you get good pay for little work.
