    Pros

    Great benefits package; opportunities for both college grads and college students. The company's diversification of its customer base across the globe as well as a large backlog means any recession should have little to no effect on Gulfstream Engineering. Old-school politics as to be expected in a vintage aerospace company, but plenty of exposure to senior management if you are personable and perform well. No one confined to their department; flexible work shifts (standard four tens for most) plus available overtime. Great exposure to aerospace supplier companies. Strong commitment to safety. Many other great aerospace corporations recruit out of Gulfstream Engineering with very attractive offers. Great opportunities here.

    Cons

    Stiff corporate culture; lack of diversity in some working groups. Project budgets vary on a whim at times. Initiatives such as Lean Six Sigma overpromoted.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to take a risk on new technology and bringing component design in-house.

    Pros

    A work-performance oriented company with the benefits of both a large and small company. You are not yet another drop in the ocean akin to the larger aerospace defense contractors. Your individual efforts and successes are often recognized at higher levels than your immediate supervisors and peers. At the same time, Gulfstream is a company which is at the cutting edge of technology and capabilities meaning the time you spend here is easily working with or developing future technologies (not utilizing "hand-me-down" processes or toolsets from the industry).

    Cons

    Savannah is better than Wichita, KS... but it's not the largest city in the world either.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change the nature of the workplace. Gulfstream's employees are the most motivated in the industry, which is why it retains it's title as industry leader.

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

    Pros

    Gulfstream is an excellent employer providing fair salary and excellent benefits to include dental, medical and vision. Gulfstream reaches out to the community by hosing volunteer days where areas in need of assistance get it from enthusiastic employees. Gulfstream provides excellent working environments and all types of employee services. There is even a doctor on site once per week.

    Cons

    There is no company day care. The cafeteria food is lame and costs too much. There is not adequate parking within a reasonable distance from the buildings.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the average worker doing the actual work. Middle management hides too much from upper management.

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    All of the above. Emphasis on training. Seniors visit sites regularly and engage. Fringe benefits good and getting better. Feel valued, feel cared about.

    Cons

    Very US centric (website, intranet and staff magazine rarely if at all mention other sites) - don't always understand how non-US sites work or play and can seem a bit self absorbed - although seniors have recognised they are a worldwide company and are trying to fix this. There seems to be pay disparity between US and non-US employees and insofar as this matters - non US pay is not that high by comparative native employees. Limited career progression in smaller non-US sites

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! But uderstand your non-US people better!!!!!

    Pros

    The company Dept. Managers recognizes and appreciates a job well done.

    Cons

    I can't say a bad word about them.

    Advice to Management

    I think that they are so large that some of the lower Management do not have enough hands on experience in the fields they manage.
