    I worked at Georgia Tech full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge of technology, constant growth, student and staff are very engaging. Vacation and sick leave are great. There is a good state retirement program with a 10 year vest.

    Cons

    Salaries and raises are not the same as you find it the private sector. Parking on campus is expensive. Depending on the position not a lot of room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in Information Technology. Get salaries more competitive with the industry.

  6. Good School

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time

    Pros

    ositive Experience: Great school but tons and tons of work for engineering/CS. Got a B.S. in Computer Engineering and graduated in 2003. To this day, every once in a while, I have a terrifying dream that I'm back in school taking a test for a class i didn't attend that I need to graduate. All that studying messed with my sub-consciousness.

    Cons

    egative Experience: Too few (attractive) girls. Weed out classes. Some teachers are more interested in research than students (this wasn't always the case but it happens from time to time). Didn't realize that I would be graded against other students in my classes vs a standard grading scale. For example, in one class I got a 23 on an exam, which turned out to be a B, because only 7 kids out of like 35 got above 25 (think 33 was the highest score). So the professor decided that the B range for that exam was from 20-25.

    Advice to Management

    I had HOPE scholarship the whole time and it pretty much covered everything except for my books. I think you got $150 for books but that didn't buy much. Didn't bother applying for other scholarships since, at the time, this covered my tuition.
