    A great school, but a difficult place to work.

    I worked at Georgia Tech

    Pros

    Georgia Tech has a well-deserved reputation for being a great school. Working around the best and brightest students is a treat. The energy and diversity on campus are wonderful.

    Cons

    Surprisingly, GT has poor technology for staff members. Many silos on campus keep people apart, and prevent good communications. Professors have a well-defines career path, but no one else at GT does - the professional development classes are a mixed bag: some are good, but some are outdated and not a good use of time. The benefits package is complex and difficult to understand. It was difficult to get anyone in HR to answer questions - they usually refer questions to a website.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on merit, not seniority.
