    I have been working at Georgia Tech

    Pros

    The university offers several training courses on-line for staff to include software and personal development. Benefits have improved over time. Great place to grow and enhance skills.

    Cons

    Due to the location in the downtown area, walkers should be aware of their surroundings and walk with another person at all times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    They work with you on classes and research. They are extremely aware of your status as a student first.

    Cons

    It is hard to balance class, gra work, and outside school work. The coursework at tech is very challenging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue putting education first. Also work with graduate students to pair up with advisors as soon as they get on campus.

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

    Pros

    This is a good investment on your future and it worth the time and effort you put into it

    Cons

    Work/ Life balance is not met. you always have some work to do. you have to be very careful in time management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more on solving the adviser/advisee relationship. many of the graduate students change their adviser more than one time and this wastes a lot of energy, time and effort from students who are motivated and have a lot of energy to put into research.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech

    Pros

    Competitive, collaborative, and highly technical environment. Access to almost any sort of instrumentation is possible on campus or with collaborators off campus

    Cons

    The pay is not great especially when you factor in the couple of thousand in fees you have to pay every year.

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

    Pros

    Excellent institution for a STEM BS/MS/PhD degree - especially for those who are aiming to go into industry. Consistently ranked in the top both nationally and internationally. Excellent resources for research with a very diverse group of researchers. Huge career fair, and generally a lot of companies coming through campus to recruit. For in-state students the ROI is pretty astronomical (i.e. I made it through a BS and PhD with ~$20k student loans, and general PhDs leaving my department expect ~$90-100k salary).

    Cons

    The fees for graduate students are a constant source of frustration. Most grads can expect stipends in the mid $20k range, and then expect to pay $1200 for fall/spring fees and $1000 for summer fees. Tack onto that $750 parking permits, and it gets to be a bit much for those of us commuting everyday. Also, for commuters specifically, traffic in Atlanta is pretty awful sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please work on innovative ways to cover institution fees for graduate students. This would be my main concern.
