    I worked at Georgia Tech (Less than a year)

    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.
