    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazing core facilities for cellular analysis, bio polymer characterization, imaging, bio molecular analysis and more - professors in the biomedical engineering department mostly have funding and there is collaboration between professors to support research projects.

    Georgia is not as much of a biotech area so there aren’t as many industry connections

    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time

    Pros

    Gain laboratory experience alongside course credits (its nearly impossible to get anything that's not an A, so its a GPA boost as well!)

    Cons

    Individual experiences depend heavily on the professor you work under. Smaller laboratories, where you will receive 1-on-1 attention is VERY important, especially early on.

    Advice to Management

    Give more independence to your undergraduate students after they have shown their competence in training.
