    Current Employee - Intern in Warner Robins, GA

    I have been working at Georgia Tech Research Institute as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    -The work has the potential to be very engaging
    -fantastic variety of projects to work on
    -pay is very competitive
    -strict 40hrs/week for most contracts

    Cons

    -Government contracts are long and slow
    -Clearance required for most roles
    -promotion cycle is 3-5 years

    Defense/government work is great work if you're comfortable with the environment, but I might've pursued something more fast-paced and less security-conscious.

    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant  in  Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Graduate Research Assistant in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Georgia Tech Research Institute full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fairly willing to pay for grad school and support patent applications. If you get your grad school paid for, it is a pretty good deal even though you are making much less than you would in a job.

    Cons

    Advisers can take advantage of students. The adviser has all of the power, so if you get a bad adviser, he or she can ruin your career if they don't like you or make you miserable for 5+ years.
