    Pros

    Nice campus, good work environment. This is a good platform to contact many high-level researcher, build up your network.

    Cons

    Some times you feel the university treat student is very different to staff. Many sources are only open to student. Many activities (even academic) are only for student.

    Pros

    Decent pay for part-time student, learn valuable skills, regularly train in life saving and swimming, meet lots of other fun people, see/work big events (duel in the pool/winter nationals), flexible scheduling. Loved my time there obviously.

    Cons

    Early start for morning shift can be difficult. It can be a little slow when theres one person swimming laps and you're on stand but that's only 20 min at a time. there was no employee parking at CRC so I had to park in my designated area on campus which wasn't so bad for me but I can see that being an issue depending on your parking pass. I'm honestly thinking hard trying to come up with something more significant. No real cons.

    Pros

    Obviously it's a top tier school with a great and well-deserved reputation for being on the cutting edge. The academics are hard by design, and that's why the people take a Georgia Tech degree seriously.

    Cons

    The paperwork side of things is unbelievably painful here. I'll have degrees from a couple other universities and none of them made things this difficult. I've had paperwork lost and been told that I had filled out the wrong form when someone in the office had given it to me the day before. I've heard of people accidentally getting sent degrees, despite not having actually graduated. And it's not a few isolated incidents. It's a clear pattern and everyone complains about it. Some departments are probably better than others, but it seems to be an institute-wide problem.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline administrative processes, get better software than whatever you use for Buzzport, and reduce the number of administrative personnel by about half.

    Pros

    R1 institution Campus is well-landscaped Career services is a decent resource for finding a traditional engineering job and general job advice Mild name recognition

    Cons

    BME curriculum is next to useless Teachers don't really care about teaching Career services is not good at finding biotech jobs More funding for student services is needed Not a lot of connections to the surrounding area or other parts of the country

    Advice to Management

    Focus more energy in getting departments to work together Get with industry to develop curriculums that are worth teaching to students
