    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time

    Pros

    Able to manage your time by having part-time job besides classes

    Cons

    I work at Post Office at Georgia Tech Student Center. Management is fine, fellow workers, specifically the temporary worker, sometimes does not give you the opportunity to grow on by learning to process packages etc. Salary is so low, and most of the time, it is physical labor.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that the temporary workers, not part-time postal office assistant students, were more respectful toward the working part-time students.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, good intention middle management but they have zero influence.

    Cons

    Uncomfortable relationships between management. Very clique like. If you are not liked by one in top management you might as well pack your bags. They promote and provide raises and bonus in a unusual manner.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up top management and gain control of improper relationships. Everyone whispers about it and causes an extremely high turnover.
