    I worked at University of Georgia part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people and and the place are great. I had a lot of fun working here.

    Cons

    Hard to get hired permanently. I was a student worker while I was still at UGA and to be hired permanently full-time you need at least a masters degree (also its a small group that people don't often leave, so there aren't a lot of openings).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I worked at University of Georgia part-time

    Pros

    Great tuition waiver benefits and decent assistantship compensation.

    Cons

    The workload of the position is not relatively low. It also depends on how much work your supervisor assigned to you. You often have to check in and sit in the office to make sure you have worked for required hours.

    Advice to Management

    The nature of the assistantship is kind of benefit to graduate students rather than a full-time job.

    Pros

    calm and inexpensive city, Safe and beautiful living area. Competitive research groups and good professors that can help you in variety of fields.

    Cons

    Maybe the only thing which could be somehow not pleasant for some groups , is the size of the city which is a relatively small city. It's not a problem for me but maybe for some others it is !

    Advice to Management

    Just try to improve the facilities and tools for researchers as much as they can, in this case they would be always between top 50 of US universities.
