    I worked at Georgia Tech (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, work-life balance, pleasant work atmosphere (except for a couple of co-workers), and good operational support. If you are looking for good work life balance and can afford the low pay, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    A lot of politics / red tape, which stalls innovation and performance. Something that should take a week to get done takes months. Pay is about 25 percent below industry standard. The benefits are above standard (Medical / Retirement - Pension).

    Advice to Management

    Let the workers get the job done and get middle management out of the way.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay, generally good students and good coworkers. Fun environment. I've had a good experience at Georgia Tech so far and intend to continue working for them.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. A high volume of coworkers doesn't allow for much upward movement. Other than that, not much else to say.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe organize classes a little bit better, sometimes the rules are not straightforward and students have problems coping with ambiguities.

    Pros

    The working shifts are very flexible to your school schedule. It is also a relaxed environment where micromanaging does not happen.

    Cons

    There is little interaction with persons outside of the manager and a few of the other student employees. You also do not get to speak with the appealants.
