    I worked at Georgia State University full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I liked the academic setting and the people were very pleasant. It was interesting to work with the people who were also your teachers. I provided academic research for both class and personal research for papers or books that the professors were writing. It was a great chance to practice research methods for a different research topic than the one I was necessarily interested in for my own research.

    Cons

    No advancement within the department, as you are not offered employment beyond the length of your graduate program. This is not necessarily a con because it is stated upfront when you are offered the position, but they may consider offering more career opportunities to recent graduates who do not have their own prospects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better promotion rate, be more attentive to the work environment as some employees were not using time effectively, and make sure that employees are happy with the workload. Personally, I could have used more work as at times it was incredibly boring.

    Interview Details

    In my memory, this university did not follow a normal standard to interview people. They just interviewed a 6-10 people, and wait for their reply. Many people would decline GSU's offer. For most of the cases, people ranked low would accept the offer.
