    Pros

    Gulfstream Aerospace is owned by General Dynamics. Big companies are not fun. Gulfstream has gone downhill since GD BOUGHT it. Not a good place anymore unless you are in Senior Management where anything goes and the pay is awesome.

    Cons

    Senior management is pathetic. One VP dated an administrative assistant. I think she is doing well now as are the others who have golfed or slept their way up. Way to Go!

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management other than, keep your resume updated. You don't deserve your jobs. Someday someone will get it. And Phoebe is alienating....not good.
