    Pros

    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.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    The secretaries, department heads and students are all extremely helpful. The research you work on is extremely interesting. The name on your resume causes companies to be interested in you if you have a well written resume.

    Cons

    The pay is too low for the city of Atlanta. I realize we are grad students but 22K/year is in the poor level. Additionally a lot of that pay goes to extra fees. You work extremely long hours (14+hours/day, did 18 at one point) as a graduate research assistant. There is no planned vacation days although technically you are allowed two weeks off which I have never seen occur. Finding / communicating with bosses can be difficult which sometimes leads to massive project slowdown.

    Advice to Management

    You need to have a well defined vacation policy for graduate research assistants. Increase pay or improve benefits.
