USC takes care of its people

Senior Research Associate (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

ProsJoin the Trojan family - this employer is one of the largest in Los Angeles. Top notch education, high quality research, money being invested in infrastructure and in hospitals. Benefits are great.

ConsSalaries can be on the low side. It is an academic institution after all.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease employee retention by rewards based on merit. current merit increase system is, in theory, a good idea, but is not implemented well.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
