  1.  

    Great place to learn many skills, but difficult to get through the politics

    Current Employee - Research Scientist I in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    It's a fairly large organization, so it's easy to find people with similar interests and knowledge base to discuss and resolve problems. It's a great place to learn new skills and diversify, however sometimes it does not match with the current industry trends.

    Cons

    As a state institution everything has to go out to bid, so our own expertise is never utilized when making decisions or implementing solutions within the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to listen through the managers. Technology changes so quickly that it is difficult for managers to keep up. The people down in the trenches know the current trends. But beware of those who say they have done something; make sure to follow up with their peers to check the facts.

    Current Employee - Research Engineer in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    There is a lot of flexibility in terms of work schedule, a wide variety of projects to work on, great benefits, and overall it's an exciting environment.

    Cons

    Pay is very much on the low end of the scale, career growth opportunities must be created by the individual (in my experience management focuses heavily on career development of teaching faculty and less on research faculty). On the flip side opportunities for taking classes to get an additional degree abound if the employee is willing to take the initiative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more emphasis on valuing and developing the research faculty.
