More Pros and Cons

  1. "Good company"

    I worked at Gulfstream full-time

    Pros

    Well respected company with good opportunities for good performers - show up, do your best work, get along with everyone and ask relevant questions along the way, and you can have a great career here.

    Cons

    Time off policy is very weak; Ebbs and flows (and therefore periodic layoffs) are an industry standard -- work hard in value-add positions and you'll be fine.

    I have been working at Gulfstream (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - good pay and benefits
    - solid industry
    - backed up by General Dynamics
    - quality products
    - if you like warm weather, and historical places, it's a nice area

    Cons

    - lots of "lean six sigma" BS used in non-applicable areas with people claiming millions of dollars saving while not taking the cost in consideration.
    - some department are toxic. Some people have been working in the test labs for more than 20 years and refuse to see "new processes or ideas, because we have always done one way before and it works". Lots of backstabbing by these people. Instead of mentoring, they are destroying. Makes people insane.
    - company is now a corporate so it lost the "family feel".
    - promotion are based on time and not performance. If you are 2 months below requirement to get promotion, it will be denied by HR. So why going the extra mile ?

    Advice to Management

    Have some guts and tell the "experienced old" people to stop with their bs. Telling us to wait until they retire is passive. And probably will make the talent quit.
