    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Being a Teaching Assistant was a great experience. I got to help my fellow students learn challenging material and I reinforced my own knowledge. I also got to connect and network with the professors I worked for.

    Cons

    No real complaints. Sometimes you have to get things like tests, quizzes, homework graded by a certain dead line, but if you manage your time well, it is doable.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A wonderful place to develop intellectually; good opportunities for exploring interdisciplinary thinking. My salary increased 30% over the two years that I worked here.

    Cons

    No research library and limited archives. Materials requests had to be conducted entirely through GIL or ILL which created a lot of challenges for keeping up to date on new trends in the field and conducting research. A very limited research budget ($300).

    Pros

    GaTech is a good research university to work. They have very good facilities and dedicated staff work for it. Recommended for those who try to find a postdoc or Ph.D. candidate position.

    Cons

    It is located in downtown Atlanta, so driving is very time consuming. Parking is also costly. So suggest to use alternative way to get to school. There is Marta train and techtroley. I combine these two to come to work. It is a bit time consuming, but that is reality. Anyway, Atlanta is a big city and cannot expect like a small town/city.
