    Pros

    Endless resources, extremely intelligent professors that are willing to help

    Disorganized structure of the program, must be self motivated and work hard to expand experience beyond just the department, no one follows any clear rules on work hours so can randomly become extremely busy

    Advice to Management

    continue with PhD checklist, but require advisors to audit more frequently and provide advice on timelines

    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.
