    I worked at Georgia Tech part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Working as a graduate teaching assistant was a very beneficial experience. Teaching entry level class improved my understanding of the basics, and it also helped me with my communication skills.

    Cons

    Can't really think of anything I'm not satisfied with. The training before the begging of the semester was very intense. I understand the benefits of "learning to teach", but most people just didn't care much about it.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time

    Pros

    Very friendly and collaborative culture which enhances learning and participation
    Exposure and contribution to very exciting research projects from multiple disciplines

    Cons

    Balancing Work with life is sometimes challenging due to the work demand, specially in graduate studies
    Work opportunities are limited for many majors in Atlanta

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to offer some lectures of classes in work-life balance, and personal growth outside classroom
    Atlanta is a great city to live and work, having more engineering companies in Atlanta will certainly help

    Former Contractor - Program Coordinator in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at Georgia Tech as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Worked remotely with grant allocations & management, coordinating travel, proofing research papers, conference coordination and compiling research references. Built multi national network amongst research professors. Contractual basis for 14 months. Great experience!

    Cons

    Part time availability on a contractual basis, so the position wasn't the most reliable on a financial point, and the school department was not willing to work with a stranger based remotely.. Made getting the invoices paid a little more difficult.
