    I have been working at Georgia Tech

    Pros

    401K and retirement plans one of the best nationally, HR actually does a good job of being visible, opportunities for telecommuting in my position

    Cons

    Long term career at Georgia Tech harder for those seeking engineering roles, especially if your work is on contract, Parking permits are killer (but so is anywhere in midtown Atlanta).

    Cons

    The payment is quite low. It cannot cover your living cost in Atlanta because you have to pay for your fee which is quite a lot!

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

    Pros

    You get to work with amazing people who are the most influential people in the world in their respective fields. There is a lot of opportunity to interact with academic experts, captains of industry, and leading practitioners in your field. The research institute and the foundation add so much to the academic experience.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is getting there. Atlanta traffic is daunting if you do not live near campus. Get an apartment in midtown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be like other schools. Stay true to the Georgia Tech traditions.
