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

    Pros

    An opportunity to develop good leadership and organizational skills.
    On the financial end, GTAs receive a full tuition waiver and a monthly stipend depending on the number of work hours.

    Cons

    The courseload can get pretty hectic sometimes, especially during exam time.
    Reduced the monthly stipend this year (2016-2017) by nearly 400$.
