    Pros

    Very professional environment. They will train you 100% until your confident in doing your job correctly and safely.

    Cons

    Policies are good however, they are getting quite carried away.

    Advice to Management

    Training's better then anywhere iv ever been but, they need to understand every one learns differently.

    Pros

    Reasonable pay, but for the work we do everyone tells is we are underpaid.

    Cons

    Bullying and management does nothing, good ole boy mentality, people separate into groups and choose a person to harass. Best to keep your mouth shut, not ask questions, and work than to bring new and great ideas. Micromanaging at it's finest. Only offer HSA health insurance, and it's great.... Only if you don't use it... smh

    Advice to Management

    Take complaints seriously, and you won't lose good employees. Stop singling certain individuals out. Work on team work, and the meaning. Stop promoting more of the same, and expecting a change. Stop micromanaging.

    Pros

    Good Benefits, The appearance of management caring for their employees

    Cons

    The Good Ol Boy network still fully functional. Management really cares about management not the employee, even though there is a lot of noise to the contrary

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a much better accounting and over sight of all levels of management. Hiring practices need to be more fair and there needs to be an accurate and comprehensive accounting of pre and post hiring phases of new hires. If the new hire was not the best choice was not made, options and accounting need to be accomplished. If a mistake is made, (and that is often the case), the new employee needs to be replaced. Management needs to be held accountable and not cover up the issue.

    I worked at Gulfstream full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company offers great benefits - 401K matching, college course reimbursement program
    Decent pay for the area
    Respected company for resume building

    Cons

    GA location is in the middle of nowhere
    Awful traffic
    Very corporate
    Employees can be cut throat to get ahead
    Favoritism
    Terrible and expensive food options on campus

    Advice to Management

    Listen to all employees and be available. There is all this talk of "open door policy" but the doors are not open and meetings -if approved- must be scheduled far in advance. Walk the walk, don't be all talk.

    Focus on people. Not Aircraft. If you make sure your people that produce your aircraft are taken care of, the aircraft will be fine.

    Pros

    Great people and good learning environment for manufacturing in an aerospace environment.

    Cons

    No data, senior IE's, or any real mentorship. If you want to do purchasing this is the job.

    Advice to Management

    The IPT is a meat mill, hoping for someone to be a 20% and stay is a risky strategy.
