    I worked at University of Southern California part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    great benefits and competitive salary for an entry level position, Trojan spirit and pride, friendly co-workers, great working condition and supportive atmosphere. my boss was pleasant to work with and was a great mentor for future career opportunities. even though I was an administrative assistant, I was able to meet many dental professors and get a hands on feel for how hospitals are administrated. I was also given the opportunity to run errands to the Keck School of Medicine of USC. I loved working here; I felt I was part of the Trojan family.

    Cons

    my office was crowded and needed some renovation - expanding the office space to accommodate the staffing, etc

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    some departments don't see as much funding as others - even within the same school - please appropriate funding to bring up all departments on par
