    Pros

    The university has a beautiful campus and the environment is also good. The research level of the university is high especially for engineering area.

    Cons

    The Safety around the campus is a concern. During midnight, you'd better not walking alone around the campus. But the situation looks improving now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve salary.

    Pros

    Georgia Tech is located in a very great area of an up-and-coming city. Lots of cool things are happening around here. And on top of that, Georgia Tech has a great deal of resources to help you do whatever it is you want to do!

    Cons

    The pay as a graduate student is generally is not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I can't really think of anything. My advisor is a great mentor and supervisor. Of course, it's not always sunshine and rainbows, but in comparison to the nightmare stories you sometimes here about bosses and advisors, mine is pretty exceptional.
