    Current Employee - ECE Undergraduate Teaching Assistant in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Challenging, as the undergraduate teaching assistant, you learn new knowledge, and debugging skill as well while helping other student debugging their homework.
    All professors I have work with are very respectful, and nice.
    The pay might not be much, but the experience is unique, especially if you are the person who like to help others.

    Cons

    The hourly pay could be better. The hourly salary for a senior student teaching assistant is only 10 dollar per hour.

    Pros

    I was working on different funded projects by Precast Concrete Institute (PCI), American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), Fiatech, Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).

    Not really anything that I'm aware of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was working under supervision of Prof. Chuck Eastman and Prof. Javier Irizarry. Both of them have the best leadership.

    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!

    Pros

    You get to work with amazing people who are the most influential people in the world in their respective fields. There is a lot of opportunity to interact with academic experts, captains of industry, and leading practitioners in your field. The research institute and the foundation add so much to the academic experience.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is getting there. Atlanta traffic is daunting if you do not live near campus. Get an apartment in midtown.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to be like other schools. Stay true to the Georgia Tech traditions.
