      Outdated Employee Policies and Pay

      Pros

      Largest employer in the region, great 401k matching, 4x10 work schedules

      Cons

      Pay is significantly less than similar jobs in other major cities, they require you to use earned vacation time for factory shutdowns, they require salaried employees to clock their time hourly, they are stingy with PTO and salaried employees stepping out of the office. Older employees in management positions do not quit/leave/get promoted preventing younger employees from advancing

      Cool work, but terrible leadership

      Pros

      Cool work. I enjoyed working with incredible aircraft.

      Cons

      Worst leadership you could possibly imagine. It is so bad. I could probably write a book about it. Leadership told us to take vacation before December because we would be “busy,” then furloughed us for five weeks come December… without pay, but legally, you could use vacation to cover the furlough…. There are more stories, but man, was leadership brutal.

      Pros

      Pay is high on a nationwide level. Pay is very high on a local level.

      Cons

      The leadership team at Gulfstream is “The Keystone Cops” of leadership teams. Quick to cut (deeply), disinterested in improvement, reactionary, quick to blame, oblivious to self-fault, power-hungry zealots who’ve somehow managed to drive a multi-billion dollar, industry-leading company straight into the ground. Being in management there drove me to ask my doctor to prescribe me an antidepressant, literally. The total lack of order and logic in decision making is exhausting. There are no legitimate annual goals. It’s impossible to make any sort of plan due to that absence of goals combined with the LT’s itchy trigger fingers (that get really itchy when poor quarterly results come in). There’s no rhyme or reason in who’s next to get laid off so career planning is beyond futile. It’s foolish. The systems, processes, and culture are all outdated and clumsy - at best. So yeah, if you like the idea of high pay, zero job satisfaction, a pack of self-serving (insert plural noun of choice here) at the helm, all seasoned with the spice of never knowing when you might get laid off, then this place is for you. The future for this company is dismal at best.

      Pros

      Very satisfied with pay and work environment. Colleagues as well as supervisors as well as managers are very respectful, considerate and exemplify a culture of true professionalism and community. The benefits are great and opportunities for advancement is great.

      Cons

      In my experience there are no significant cons.
