    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice atmosphere, you get to work with very smart people, most professors are really good at teaching and research, which is a rare thing to find in most universities.

    Cons

    It may be hard to adapt if you lack some specific background and is assigned to a Teaching Assistant position within that area. Atlanta is expensive, so have that is mind. Lastly, I'd say: if you don't love doing research, don't start a PhD.

    Advice to Management

    Support better your First year students, I guess many of them suffer from "impostor syndrome" and sometimes the environment does not help: professors put a lot of pressure especially on GRAs. There's a lot of stress going on there.
