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

    Pros

    Good academia environment. Beautiful campus. Good facilities. People are nice. Georgia Tech is ranked among the world's best universities. Based in Atlanta, the large, public university. Many clubs you can join.

    Cons

    Too much male and few girls. Payment is OK to low. Food is OK but not so good. And most of the time, campus has too much event with additional parking fee.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice to management except they can balance ratio between female and male. That is it.

    I worked at Georgia Tech (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff and attitude in the work place. There is time to complete tasks like homework or other tasks. They are trying to create more tasks and projects for this job to make it more involved.

    Cons

    Job is not very involved so there is a lot of downtime currently. It is a customer service type of job so there will be a negative phone call every now and then.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with more tasks to do with the current job. Without something to do the employees will miss use their time on the internet while there has to be some project which needs some assistance to create more efficiency in the work place.

    I have been working at Georgia Tech (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of collaborations and resources available for graduate students in the chemistry department at Georgia Tech. Overall, professors are friendly and accessible when it comes to interacting with students.

    Cons

    Due to the size, there are many inconsistencies in program requirements depending on what lab one joins. These can be very frustrating when everyone in the program receives the same degree.

    Pros

    Excellent infrastructure. Lots of employee support and resources for graduate students. Free rec center access is a big plus.

    Cons

    Insane student fees (~$1400/term, with the option to be deducted from your paycheck over 3 months.) If there is any sort of payroll error, it is a huge pain to get it fixed and can sometimes take weeks. Not ideal on a grad student salary.
