    I have been working at Gulfstream full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The best in terms of product, support and new product development. Some areas have brilliant employees and demonstrate true innovation.

    Cons

    Elite management mindset with intimidating top down approach. Absolutely no regard or respect for the company's talent. Strategic focus is on today's problems.

    Advice to Management

    Restore the Gulfstream values that made this company great.

    I worked at Gulfstream (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you have small expectations, Gulfstream is for you. They will give you a salary that will pay the bills. That is it. There is no other incentive to work for Gulfstream. The downside is they will work you to death.

    Cons

    What a backwards company. Good Ole boy mentality and behind the times. Expect stupid procedures, total lack of ingenuity and ignorant management. And expect to be worked to death.

    By the way...your boss IS sleeping with his assistant. That is the Gulfstream way.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice for management. There is no hope for them. What is the saying...about teaching a dog new tricks....just glad I got out of there.

    Pros

    Good money Paid Vacation and Personal time

    Cons

    Ive come to find the Money isnt worth it even with exemplary Employee performance reviews I chose to leave and take a pay cut as well. Imposible Timelines, Inept Management, Factions among departments, Interns chosen over Promotion from within, POOR Planing Squared!! Descretionary accountability when it comes to policy and protocol, Lots of "Traps" set for floor level employees making Morale non existant. Insurance is a joke , no job security.....Thats just off the top of my head....

    Advice to Management

    I dont know what to say its a lost cause at this point.
