    I worked at Georgia Tech

    Pros

    I liked how they payed me 11/hour for mentoring high school students. At training they feed you well.

    Cons

    There wasn't any cons. A con could be having to pay for parking when turning in how many hours you worked biweekly.

    I worked at Georgia Tech

    Pros

    broad areas of faculty expertise, very talented professors and students, exciting environment to learn and get works done together

    Cons

    students background is quite diverse. due to the layout of students' offices, it's hard to communicate with other students directly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    probably could arrange the social events interacting with students at a more frequent regular basis. this could facilitate the ideas exchanges between departmental administrative officers and students in a effective and efficient way.
