    Former Employee - Gradua in Atlanta, GA
    Former Employee - Gradua in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Georgia Tech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Able to participate in advanced scientific research. Nice campus. Strong reputation in undergraduate and graduate studies. Full tuition for graduate research assistants.

    Cons

    High student fees are levied every semester on GRAs, even when no classes are taken. High athletic fee that goes to support the varsity sports teams, which may not be of interest to some students. This fee was increased the year GT fired their football coach, who had 4 years and $4 million remaining on his contract.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop collecting usurious fees from graduate students who are living on small stipends.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    lot of collaboration opportunities, it is pretty competitive in all fields of academic life which keeps you motivated, many facilities for doing research, environment is supportive in few ways,

    Cons

    there is limited financial support available. No raise in most cases even after number of years of work in the same position with performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    admitting someone in research position has some form of responsibility on management as well, that they have to ensure that sufficient funds are available to support the PHD research of the student. rather not admit him at all at the first place.
