    Advice to Management

    Georgia Tech is scored consistently among the top schools in the world. However, the main obstacle stopping it from becoming a great school instead of being a good school is the number of students. In this era of cutbacks, it is extremely difficult to reduce enrollments but it is the only way to become a top technology school.

    Jobs at GA Tech are stable jobs.

    Cons

    Job titles do not necessary match compensation, perhaps the educational job market is less lucrative than private job.

    Try to match private business wages for GA Tech personnel do not work any less than those employed by the private enterprises.
