    Pros

    Financially stable company. Great people work here that are trying to do their best for the company and would do anything to help one another. The HR team is very collaborative and talented.

    Cons

    Poor processes, wrong people making decisions and favoritism for developing certain people while ignoring the needs of those who really could help the business. Too much reliance on a certain group in HR which is burning them out. Not enough vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate your people, develop all of them, ask what they need not just what you want and think is best for them.

    Semi good job stability but lacks the payment or salary potential of most other companies. It's an okay place to work for.

    Lack of sick time, lack of upward potential growth, lack of strong leadership

    Promote and pay your people what they're worth

    Pros

    This company cares about putting out the highest quality product they can. Most corporations preach it but Gulfstream has the reputation of being the best for a good reason, product is impeccable. They match 401k and the pay is more then competitive.

    Cons

    The clim up the corporate ladder can be a steep one in the smaller off sites. That being said if your willing to educate yourself, work and be innovative in your thought process you can climb the ladder. I have issues with how they rate employees for performance, to give everyone a generic score gets no-one anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the down to earth and approachable attitude that is currently adopted. Management does a really good job at many locations at being in touch however places like Savannah its easy to lose touch with so many people. Its such a large corporation thats it's really hard to "advise management" as all management teams are diffrent and have diffrent strengthens and weaknesses. All in all keep it up.

    Pros

    Decent pay for the Savanah, GA area. Benefits are so/so and align with most other local companies. Savannah is kinda nice.

    Cons

    The good ole boy network is alive and well here. Unless you know someone you can forget about any upward movement. It doesn't matter how much effort you put into going above and beyond what is required, you are not rewarded in any way. Mediocrity is paramount at this company. Management is not open to change which throws innovation completely out he window. The "just keep it running" mentality brought on by leadership makes this company a bore to work for. I would recommend staying away from this company at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new talent who can change the direction of company and listen to them. Employees are an asset and without them you have nothing.

    Pros

    Builds great quality aircrafts. Potential for future growth is somewhat certain. Was once a great family oriented type of workplace

    Cons

    Process elimination of older, sickly and minorities workers. Favors younger temps cause it cuts cost and adds to cheap labor. Unfair wrongful termination of righteous workers but keeps those who don't contribute to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Leave personal prejudices at home and not let it affect your job and decision making abilities.
