    Pros

    great pay, and retirement plan

    Cons

    The supervisors (Steam Shop) have the habit to tell everyone's else business. I think that should be something that they keep to themselves, but i was told many times about the outcome of discipline situations of my peers.

    Advice to Management

    Look more into the shadiness of the steam shop leadership.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time

    Pros

    There are great minds to work with, in a very dynamic setting.
    Comfortable and practical campus

    Cons

    The stipend offered is quite low, and is to my sense not enough to support students that have financial independence.

    Advice to Management

    You need to give more resources to students
