Former Employee - Teaching Assistant in Atlanta, GA

I worked at Georgia Tech part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very friendly atmosphere, great people, nice campus, gym, lots of walking, less stress. The management was very helpful and offered a lot of training and support.

Cons

Good for an academic career including lots of teaching and grading versus a business job solving real world problems. Not many opportunities for a permanent position.

    Current Employee - Associate Professor in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    the environment in general is friendly, and there are a lot of cross-disciplinary collaboration, the campus is big, the campus recreation center is really good, there are some nice new buildings, and Tech Square is really convenient - with shuttle to MARTA station that goes directly to airport

    Cons

    different department have different culture and politics, like every place else. atlanta traffic is insane, fortunately midtown area where the campus is located is walkable with lots of restaurants. Tech Square does not have really cheap street food

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of your new hires by giving them reduced teaching loads (or no teaching) for the first year to help them prepare grant writing and a good start-up package so they can hire graduate students to work on projects right away

    Former Employee - Facility Management in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Georgia Tech full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Given autonomy, and work scheduling flexibility

    Cons

    Poor leadership structure or control, No long term or short term strategic plan, very poor communication, no authenticity in leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop "telling" the staff you care about the work they do, and start actually showing it, In the paycheck. Staff payroll increases totaling <3% in last 5 years. Faculty and administration, double digit increases.
