    I have been working at Georgia Tech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    World class education. Accepting of students/GRA's with more diverse backgrounds than many other top programs. Research options are diverse and still growing.

    Cons

    The core training curriculum is too rigid, and inconsistent with the diversity of students being brought in. It's not a one-size-fits-all scenario, please recognize it as such and allow us to address our unique deficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    It's starting to get better, keep it going.
