    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Working as a GRA, with full tuition fees waive off. I am an international student. Getting full waive is like a boon.
    - A lot to learn.

    Cons

    Nothing I can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the awesome work.

    Current Employee - EHS Student Assistant in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people are nice and the work is reasonable. Very flexible with classes schedule, and the work you do is easily comparable to working as a full time employee.

    Cons

    The office has a low male to female ratio, meaning there are more females than males. This has lead to an increase in the amount of office drama, and gossip.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The environment is very conducive to work, but the amount of chatter creates barriers in creating meaningful relationships. I would advise management has meetings about work relationships to develop a more transparent and fluid environment.

    Pros

    Excellent Faculty
    Cutting Edge Research
    A heaven for introverts

    Cons

    Student to Faculty ratio is very high
    Forget social life

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Georgia Tech is scored consistently among the top schools in the world. However, the main obstacle stopping it from becoming a great school instead of being a good school is the number of students. In this era of cutbacks, it is extremely difficult to reduce enrollments but it is the only way to become a top technology school.

    Working As A Undergraduate Lab Instructor at the Invention Studio

    Current Employee - Undergraduate Lab Instructor in Atlanta, GA
    Current Employee - Undergraduate Lab Instructor in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    24/7 Access to the invention studio, which is equiped with cutting edge manufacturing equiptment. Also, give the ability to teach others how to use these machines, and give general advice on designing.

    Cons

    If you live on the wrong side of campus, the 24/7 access is somewhat a moot point, as you are limited by your ability to make it to the studio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the studio more money. It will always be used wisely to further increase our ability to help all students on campus.
