    I worked at Georgia Tech (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice environment to work in. There are many areas in which to work including academic, such as faculty, program manager or student advisor or non-academic, such as administration or facilities and grounds. It is a large place and there is a need for just about any area. The culture is pretty open in general but it also depends on the particular area you are in. Very good benefits and retirement plans if you stay for 10 years or more.

    Cons

    Lockstep salaries and small raises. Promotions are few and far between. Bureacratic constraints restrict job efficiency. Very hard to get rid of non performers.
