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

    Pros

    Not only am I able to contribute to building a product that makes me proud when I see it at airports and flying overhead, I work with fellow employees who are honest and dedicated to a quality product for customers.
    --Very competitive pay
    --Good benefits
    --Upper management who listens and invests in their employees
    --Middle management who are empowered to promote from within

    Cons

    I don't see any blatant cons...
    -- Companies contracted to provide medical insurance have required employees to jump thru hoops to be reimbursed

    Office space. Office cubicles in Savannah, the BTC, are not conducive for productivity. Too many cubes are open and multiple voices overlap each other. No phone privacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I joined Gulfstream for a summer internship. I was out of state so I was offered corporate housing in a GREAT place by the company for the entire duration of the internship. The internship experience was also awesome. It started slow with practice and tutorials but once I learned some of the design tools used by the company, I started real work. I did pretty much the same work that other entry level engineers did, and so I am proud to say that my designs are actually used on the production aircraft. The work environment was super fun and super supportive. People were super laidback, and welcoming. I looked forward to work everyday. The internship was an IDEAL internship that any intern would expect to get. I would love to go back to this company at this site.

    Cons

    I couldn't find any during my 3 months working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

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

    Pros

    Great people, great atmosphere, challenging work if you earn it. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Gulfstream and would happily work for the company again. The atmosphere at the workplace was happy and open, and my managers were very supportive and good at providing challenging and rewarding tasks. This in turn helped me to develop both personally and professionally. A good work/life balance is also encouraged.

    Cons

    Corporate bureaucracy challenges. It is difficult to get much done with some of the outdated processes in place and the internal structure in the company. There are of course ways to get things done anyway, but a lot of time can easily be wasted on administrative tasks when it could easily be spent elsewhere. Communication and collaboration between the departments could be improved. In addition I didn't find Savannah the most interesting place to live
