Great resources, peers, and work environment

PhD Student (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

ProsHelpful approachable faculty means you can get the expertise you need. Two cleanrooms and numerous other user facilities means you have all the equipment get your work done.

ConsSome lab groups can be like fiefdoms... generally best to contact a grad student in the group and have them ask their advisor on your behalf.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the user facilities. The cleanrooms and other equipment (SEM, TEM, SIMS) are a very valuable to researchers and grad students. They make it possible for groups to do experiments that they would otherwise not be able to do.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Fantastic

Full Time Student (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time for less than a year

ProsBeautiful campus, fantastic education, in the great city of Atlanta. What more could one ask for?

ConsUnfortunately, a lot of higher ups don't listen to students, and the political situation can get kind of nasty at times. A lot of my experience has been with academic bureaucracy, which nobody likes to deal with.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your students. I've been amazed at how many actually don't. There are some fantastic members of the staff who really do care, but a surprising number who could care less.

ProsDepending on the lab, remote work is possible and autonomy is granted. Coworkers are agreeable and pleasant, and HR is fine. The work is interesting, and resources are available for the projects.
