    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 for 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.

    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.

    Former Employee - Senior Spare Part Sales in Savannah, GA

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, competitive salary for the positions worked. Family atmosphere, excellent product line - nice to work at the "best in the business" company.

    Cons

    I personally got trapped in a position that made me "too important" to allow my desired career path. This happened to an entire team involved in a long term loan project, we came from different business groups and ended up being assigned for 5+ years to a single project. Over the life of that project we retained our job titles and pay grades, which varied widely - led to some resentment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't trap good people in important, but ultimately dead end jobs!

    Current Employee - Technical Data Associate II  in  Savannah, GA

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

    Pros

    Fair compensation compared to other companies in the Savannah, GA area - you can actually live very comfortably and not paycheck to paycheck; paid weekly; and great training for new employees, to include more training and education options to enhance your current knowledge and improve your work performance.

    Cons

    Can be a pro and con; HR is highly selective of applicants which can be good in ensuring the company hires high-quality employees; the downfall to this is they prevent the hiring managers from being able to sort through some applicants that may be highly-desirable; at times they can be a little over the top! Let the hiring managers do some of the decision-making! Some people just look good on paper!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice yet, will post an update after my first 3-6 months!

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

    Pros

    VERY good end products. Best in the industry.

    Cons

    Difficult environment if your looking for "best in class" processes.
    Progress is slow when it comes to workplace technology.
    IT is very much like Dilberts "technology inhibitors".
    HR adds a lot of red tape to the hiring process. They somehow think that they know who you need better than you do as the hiring manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get realistic about IT budgets and the need to invest in technology.
