    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.

    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.
