Current Employee - Research Associate  in  Atlanta, GA
Current Employee - Research Associate in Atlanta, GA

Pros

It has great facilities to do research. Students are also very good in general, especially the graduate students. The student body and also the staff is quite diverse. And off course the weather is great. Snow is rare, so you do not have to clean your car every winter. The institute supports greatly student and staff travel. The reimbursement is at par with the professor level even for graduate student. That is quite generous. No need of receipts for meals etc.

Cons

Some of the support stuff are incompetent. The institute is not very student fiendly. It is more friendly to the institute employee.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Should make sure the support staff responds to people in an efficient manner. They should also make the institute more student friendly.

    Current Employee - Undergraduate Assistant in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    GT allows undergraduate students to work, you can be a TA, and the first semester you will get credit but the other semesters you'll be paid between 8 - 10 dollars per hour working. It's ok work, not that impressive really. You have to submit a weekly timesheet.

    Cons

    If you are an undergraduate researcher you only get paid about $8 - $10 hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management == Faculty who whired you.

    Current Employee - Graduate Student in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    As a graduate student you have the opportunity to obtain a world class engineering degree that will leave you with a variety of different career opportunities. The PhD program provides a challenging platform to develop your analytical and communication skills. Unlike the PhD stereotype, my experience has helped greatly develop both my written and vocal communication skills. The some programs are interdisciplinary and allow students to learn and syntesize concepts from a varitey of traditional disciplines. Georgia Tech also offers a multitude of resources, including business and language classes, which most graduate students can utilize to obtain a well rounded education.

    Cons

    Like most PhD programs, a timely and successful completion of the degree requires a substantial amount of work after regular hours and during weekends with little monetary compensation. Perspective students need to be aware of the time and financial commitment required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management need to develop a standard protocol for students to receive and give evaluations. As of now, there is no formal manner in which a student and receive feedback on his performance or provide feedback to their advisor. Such a protocol would greatly improve communication and may result in a better learning experience.
