    Pros

    Gulfstream sets the world standard for business aviation products and services. Heavy investment in R&D will help ensure market leadership for many years to come. Leadership understands that superior Customer service sells new aircraft and grows the ecosystem. Heavy product demand and margin provides corporate financial security. The leadership developed an internal company culture model that is reinforced through training. Salaries are competitive. Gulfstream actively supports the local community. Military veterans are welcome. The company is growing, a rare thing for a domestic based manufacturer.

    Cons

    As the company grows, agility is a challenge. Change comes slowly. Organizational silos impede opportunities for cross-functional continuous improvement. Check out the local school systems before accepting a job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find creative means to enable the company to operate more efficiently cross-functionally. Define and implement end-to-end processes that can span across organizational units to unlock increased business value.

    Pros

    Very good benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Fast growing company that at times still wants to act like a small company. Growth may have come too quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for growth, and trust your employees. This is a great company to work for and has great people as well. However, I would work to eliminate the insider circle feeling from the company.

    Pros

    Very professional environment
    As an engineering culture practicality is unusually prevalent

    Cons

    Large corporate IT departments are reactive and tactical at best and unable to define and execute strategic vision. Gulfstream is no different in this regard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Charge IT management with developing systems in advance of demand, and supporting their efforts with the customer set.
