    High level of professionalism. Enjoyable to be affiliated with one of the top research and engineering universities in the world.

    Pros

    Undergraduate classes are not that hard if you are a graduate student. The job usually does not take 20h/week although it states so.

    Cons

    The salary rate is low, but it is expected since we are students. The expense at Atlanta is not as expensive as in those big cities like New York.
