    Pros

    Lots of intelligent people who work together and really genuinely want to help you.

    Cons

    Its a public university, so getting anything reimbursed or buying anything takes about 20 pages of old fashioned paperwork- no electronic submissions. Also, the alcohol rules are draconian and will remind you you're living in the Bible Belt.

    Pros

    Georgia Tech is a world class university. The students are motivated and very smart. Atlanta is an ideal location. I highly recommend Georgia Tech as a place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes decisions take longer than in a business environment. Academics are not used as to managing people and non performing individuals may not be addressed as quickly as in a business environment.

    Pros

    Most science disciplines give competitive salaries for grad student researchers/teaching assistantships
    Good healthcare at competitive price, plus healthcare on campus

    All depends on your research advisor--as long as you get along and are doing research they are interested in, you're golden.

    Pros

    I really like working at Tech. Overall, everyone is super friendly and professors are always willing to help you or provide you with advice, even if they are not in your committees or departments. I think professors/researchers at Tech are very passionate about the work, and it shows how much they enjoy it and they want to help you.

    Cons

    Tech professors expect a lot from you. Research tends to be focused on basic science (how something works? how we make create something new that works this or this way), so it is definitely a lot tougher than other universities in which a Ph.D. simply entitles application of a product or probing different theories.
