    Pros

    You can learn a lot from the professors and also concentrate on your own interesting problems. People are brilliant here and they can understand where your problems lie in quickly.

    Cons

    You have to work hard at Georgia Tech. It is not the place where you can relax and have good achievement. You have to really devote into what you are doing now, otherwise, your professor can tell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership at Georgia Tech is good. We have activities from time to time, and also we enjoy the freedom you have on choosing your own interesting things.

    I worked at Georgia Tech

    Pros

    Fair salary for the Atlanta area. Enough to get by. Research faculty are top notch and the facilities are competitive with anywhere other university in the country.

    Cons

    Administration are not fully appreciative of their employees. Very rigid on protocol, raise fees for graduate students every few semesters. While my immediate boss, who is my contact for all of my research, was amazing, the administration of the institute was quite rude and unpleasant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Research staff, you're doing a great job. Administrative staff, at least try to mask the fact that you want to run the institute like a business.
