    Pros

    Fast growing research university. Accommodates a very strong research group. Open to new ideas initiated by the faculty especially in international areas.

    Cons

    Although location is in the heart of Atlanta, Downtown, it gets to difficult to travel to campus due to traffic.

    Current Employee - Information Systems Specialist in Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Information Systems Specialist in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Georgia State University full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tuition assistance program available after six months of employment.
    Access to university facilities: library, recreation center, etc.
    Reasonable benefits.

    Cons

    Stagnant wages for staffers. No cost of living pay increase in five years. However, faculty continue to be hired and promoted. Lots of middle-management vice-presidents making $100K, while staffers get laid off or no raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    President Becker is a capable administrator, but GSU is so vast that it will take a long time, mostly via attrition, for most of the dead wood to retire.
