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

    Pros

    - competitive pay (though distribution is questionable)
    - great upside growth potential for company

    Cons

    - human resources is mired in the past, unable to provide any meaningful leadership
    - selective application of company policies allows protection for nepotism hires and the "old guard"
    - no defined strategy for company
    - Savannah, home to backwards thinking

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously consider firing most of HR. They're clueless. They may have been okay for the company 10 years ago, but they're not equipped to help lead the company into the future.

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    co-workers are nice. Managers would let employee almost figure out the best approach.

    Cons

    Most middle managers are very nice but they have no say. IT department is run by its director and controlled by HCL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let managers and employees get involved in the process of implementation. Once HCL is finished the implementation and no managers or employees master the subject, that is when the problem start.

    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 an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good company benefits. They offer lots of workshops for employees to take. They have wellness programs and give back to the community. Offer fun opportunities and great benefits for interns. The name of the company really perks ears anywhere you go.

    Cons

    From the website alone, you can tell some processes seem pretty outdated. Cliquey work environment. Not much mentoring going on for interns in my department. Some departments get worked down to the bone, some make up work to keep themselves busy.

    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as a contractor for less than a 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 worked at Gulfstream Aerospace as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Highest standards of manufacturing and delivering high class aircraft creates professional, deliberate environment

    Cons

    At the tactical level i.e. day-to-day priorities change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to improve esprit-de-corps across the nearly mutually exclusive business units i.e. design, manufacturing, IT, HR, and marketing
