    I worked at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job Website easy to apply and check your status through all of the levels of hiring process.

    Cons

    Not all HR representatives update the job status which is very important to the applicant to know where they are in the process. I have some positions applied for that were not updated at all for months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please verify with all HR personnel that the processes are foloowed through and management monitor it to ensure that the applicant is informed per what the website was set up to do for both sides of the hiring process. The company has invested a lot of money for the system and its options. If they are not used by all of the HR personnel, the company has thrown the money away and their excellent reputation is affected.

    Pros

    Located in one of the most charming locations in the US, this company has it all. With the tremendous amount of growth, there are literally countless opportunities to come in and make a significant impact. If you are willing to do the work, you will be rewarded.

    Cons

    There is nothing really bad to mention here that you would not find anywhere else. The HR team is proactive in identifying things that my disrupt the collaborative culture here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Continue to listen to the people and make opportunities available for everyone. Thanks.

    After all, it's business aviation that serves the wealthy; ordinary employees are not of their concerns

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

    Pros

    It's a big name in business aviation, it's part of General Dynamics if being an employee at a Fortune 100 company boost your self esteem. Company pays $10,000+ for you to fly business class internationally and ride in limos 10x the cost of a taxi

    Cons

    There is no paper trail nor transparency, seriously lack of honesty and integrity. If you leave the company, they will cut you off on every money they can get their hands on - such as Management Incentive Plan (MIP) and other bonuses, or even worse, your FSA (Flexible Spending Account) money, yet they won't be willing or able to show your if they have any policy to back them up; if you call or email them, they won't return/reply, essentially incommunicado. They figure you won't sue them for a few grand they owe you, because the legal fees alone will be much higher than the money owe you. After all, the company is in business aviation that serves wealthy people and corporations; ordinary employee's hard work and earned compensation are not of their concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gulfstream should implement personality tests as part of the standard management hiring/promotion procedure to weed out those who exhibit pathological lying behaviors.

    Company with great potential hampered by hapless human resources department

    Current Employee - Manager in Savannah, GA

    I have been working at Gulfstream Aerospace full-time (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.
