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

    Pros

    I was working on different funded projects by Precast Concrete Institute (PCI), American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), Fiatech, Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT). I had/have the best coworkers. I gained lots of experience in different domains through working on these projects. Some of them were international projects, and multiple people were collaborate with us from different countries. This helps me to learned how to manage a project and engage other coworkers.

    Cons

    Not really anything that I'm aware of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was working under supervision of Prof. Chuck Eastman and Prof. Javier Irizarry. Both of them have the best leadership.

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

    Pros

    The grad school at Tech is top 10 within US for all engineering disciplines, so this puts you in the middle of a lot of very smart people.

    Cons

    As a PhD student, they give you a stipend but take it away in the name of 'mandatory fees.' That leaves you with peanuts to live on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please treat grad students as people too, they are the ones who will go out and make a name for GT and bring back name, fame and donations.

    Pros

    Fair salary for a full-time work. The working environment is very friendly. The best thing is the flexible working time.

    Pros

    Jobs at GA Tech are stable jobs.

    Cons

    Job titles do not necessary match compensation, perhaps the educational job market is less lucrative than private job.

    Try to match private business wages for GA Tech personnel do not work any less than those employed by the private enterprises.
