There is speculation that a furlough will come Nov 28th through Jan 5th. Has anyone heard the same?

Don’t care. Putting my notice in 12hrs from now. I’ll pray for you guys while I’m looking in the rear view.
Gulfstream has lost it`s rudder.99
What can I say but enjoy your time off you worked hard for it! You got a nice severance package and I'm sure a nice nest egg. Enjoy!

I don’t know who posted the above statement but you are 100% correct!
Going to be a rude awakening for the new Engineering Leadership when things are not getting done. I hope they remember the last batch of managers and directors. History has a tendency to repeat itself. A lot of dysfunction right now. Good luck to IEF SVP- you will only hold off rest of LT for maybe 6-9 months before you are scapegoated for GAC performance. Programs and Supply Chain is waiting to eat you for lunch. We know more than you all think we do.
Gulfstream is hemorrhaging cash to build AAP planes to store until the Tulsa and Montreal debacle is fixed which is no time soon. There is vibration on G500/G600 engines also the Nacelles are a bonding nightmare. A furlough to come followed by an early 2020 RIF.
The G550 will have a furlough too.
Bad Management decisions have caused all this. More leadership heads will also cut.

Phebe stated in a Aviation International News article dated 10/28 that G-650 production will be reduced next year and the following year to to get G-650 production with current demands. GD will not produce models that are similar with regards to size and range. They have committed to the G-500, G-600 & G-700. These models have similar production processes which require less labor for the build. They also share a commonality of parts which promotes economies of scale.
It has become apparent with employees and customers, that defense contractor GD, is willing to marginalize the Gulfstream brand. They have abandoned being the leader in quality and ability to dispatch for just being an option in the large cabin field.
The saddest part is the current President of Gulfstream was once my manager. I was told by a VP at the time “he will go places” (1991). I know that he had exposure to some of the great leadership, values and philosophy that made Gulfstream a industry leader. At some point a decision was made to continue with the values of the brand or choose a another path.... sleep well Mark, I’m sure Alan is happy.
