I worked at Georgia Tech Research Institute (More than 3 years)

Pros

Intellectually challenging work; smart, motivated coworkers; relaxed research environment;

Cons

Job security can be an issue. Like all research labs, you are paid on a certain contract (usually government) which will eventually end. When that happens, you must find additional funding for a new project or look for a place on another team for the source of your salary. I don't think this is a big problem, but fear of it sometimes stressed my coworkers out.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech Research Institute as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Above-average pay, laid-back work environment, very expert workers in their field.

    Cons

    The laid-back environment can sometimes lead to very slow rates of progress on all levels.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more student assistants, who are willing to work for far less pay and at a harder rate then some of the older members.

    I worked at Georgia Tech Research Institute part-time

    Pros

    - very smart and friendly employees
    - your work is often on the cutting edge and/or has never been tried before
    - flexible schedules
    -lots of vacation time

    Cons

    -pay is good enough starting out, but forget about raises above inflation level
    -a general lack of urgency in completing work (I guess that may be a plus for some)
    -people are coasting on the all of the DOD work that comes in and there's a general lack of interest in diversifying
    -the promotion structure is extremely rigid

    Advice to Management

    Diversify your award portfolio, otherwise I do not see any growth happening soon
