    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Very good benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Fast growing company that at times still wants to act like a small company. Growth may have come too quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for growth, and trust your employees. This is a great company to work for and has great people as well. However, I would work to eliminate the insider circle feeling from the company.

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

    Pros

    Very professional environment
    As an engineering culture practicality is unusually prevalent

    Cons

    Large corporate IT departments are reactive and tactical at best and unable to define and execute strategic vision. Gulfstream is no different in this regard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Charge IT management with developing systems in advance of demand, and supporting their efforts with the customer set.

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty good company to work for. Co-workers are great and everyone basically gets along. Management sometimes leaves something to be desired. Fairly obvious that they are looking out for themselves and their bonus.

    Cons

    Mandatory continuous improvement idea submissions, safety assessments. A little bit of looking over your shoulder to make sure you don't screw up and loose your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that you were mechanics at one point and treat us like you would have liked to be treated.

    Current Employee - Senior Technician in Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    competitive pay rates, and an overall good company. Very focused on a safe work environment. The best job security/longevity Ive experienced so far in aviation. Good benifits as far as health, vision, 401k, etc. paid vacation time/holiday pay is great as well. Upper management has a progressive view on the workplace

    Cons

    the company itself has EXCELLENT values, goals and objectives. However, the lower management (department/shop) leaves allot to be desired depending on who you are working under.

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

    Pros

    Great place to work. Company take care of all of its employees with great benifits, tons of off the job activities and excellent wages.

    Cons

    Depending on your knowlege and experience, it maybe hard to move up because some of the managers and supervisors tend to bring in friends and family off the streets opposed to hiring or promoting from within.
