    Pros

    Laid back work environment, excellent reputation, cutting edge technology, diverse student population. Pay is higher than most schools in the University System of Georgia. Lots of younger professionals working full-time so the environment is fun and relaxed.

    Cons

    Staff usually get lost in the shuffle.. Moving up is difficult because it's hard to get noticed. Everyone is over qualified for the jobs they are performing. Schedules are not flexible.. Flex time is available only to employees who have children.. so not fair.

    Advice to Management

    Provide flex time to all employees and give more challenging assignments/duties to staff. Staff becomes more paper pushers than members of the college community as a whole.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment, Great Benefits, Stable. This is a great job for an experienced professional because GT appreciates a self starter.

    Cons

    Hard to move up, low promotion rate, if you don't become a SME quickly you'll find yourself without a job. New grads need not apply however you are more likely to get a job but it won't last long if youre not a self starter.

    Pros

    The time goes by fast, with the help of the other cooks to keep you pumped and moving. It's fun and everyone has a great time working with each other.

    Cons

    It gets extremely hot in the kitchen, and here in the summer time its even more exhausting. The truck sometimes will not arrive when scheduled, but something you can't control. So the day must go on.

    Advice to Management

    I'm a very hard worker, a very positive person. I get along with others and love to converse with new faces. I'm a hands on kinda guy if you need a multi-tasker I'm your guy.

    Pros

    Georgia Tech is an awesome community and campus. I have greatly enjoyed being a PhD student at this cutting-edge institution. Atlanta is fun and always has something new going on, and GT is in the center of it all. The people at GT, for the most part, are very friendly and intelligent. Some of the world's most intellectual individuals work at this school.

    Cons

    The faculty advisors aren't always trained in how to be a great manager. Grad students are expected to work long hours in order to finish tasks on a tight schedule.

    Advice to Management

    The faculty advisors should be trained on how to be better lab/group managers. Not all advisors understand the issues related to how to manage people.

    Pros

    Beautiful campus in a great location. Ga Tech students are so motivated that it was a pleasure teaching there. The faculty is outstanding...world-class.

    Cons

    Parking is expensive and prices are rising every year. Some parts of campus have very few food or coffee options.

    Pros

    access to world class research and research problems

    Cons

    not guaranteed to work on research that is relevant to your research interests and thusly could end up with two jobs: your GRA and your own actual research.
