    Awesome for this contractor

    Service (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsI have worked at Gulfstream for 2 1/2 years and have loved every minute of it! Everyone is very patient and clearly sets expectations and rewards for your job

    ConsOnly downside is the size if the facility! But growth is revenue! Wear plenty of Comfy shoes!

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow contractors more opportunities to participate in the GAC online classes!

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

    Technical Specialist I (Current Employee)
    Appleton, WI

    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

    Summer College Internship

    College Intern (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsI basically was able to craft my own role and there really was no time pressure in getting assignments done. I think my managers understand letting an employee take the reigns on a schedule for projects and tacks so the things can naturally develop.

    ConsSlow to start and not a lot of direction in the beginning of the internship. However, I learned to appreciate the openness of opportunity.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the interns experience as many different sides of the company and business as to explore all employment opportunities.

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

    Good company, best pay of career

    Aircraft Tech II (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsPretty 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.

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

    Horrible discrimination against contractors and Asians.

    Technical Specialist I (Former Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    ProsGood compensation and clean restroom (but that's about it).

    ConsSouthern direct employees and managers distinguish and verbally abuse you for being a contractor.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Its an ok place to work if your a robot

    Aircraft Tech II (Former Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    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

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

    Senior Avionics Installer (Current Employee)
    Savannah, GA

    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

    A good, solid company to work for

    Senior Technician (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    Proscompetitive 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

    Consthe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
