    Pros

    The hiring process was easy, compensation is fair and straight forward, they do direct deposit, most of the work is done on your own

    You are at the whims of the particular professor, you have to find the assignments each semester with little help from the department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep lists of the professors needing graders.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The working time is sometimes too flexible that tasks were assigned at midnight. Also, it doesn't help personal growth a lot.

    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).

    Pros

    This job is that the university offers to all their phd students. Though it sounds less, you can never complain the school.

    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!
