    Can't beat the retirement benefits. 5% is contributed by USC no matter what, then they match up to 5%, meaning you can have up to 15% contributed to retirement.

    The medical benefits package has a lot of coverage and there are several options to choose from. The best options are more expensive and some of the mid-range options have limitations in place when it comes to choosing doctors. The retirement plan is one of the best I have ever seen.

    Since I was a student worker, I did not really receive any benefit packages. They do have competitive pay and great staff!

    Health insurance is acceptable. Flexibility in work culture is the best part. Senior management oversight needs to improve.

    Student health insurance is not bad and is paid for if you are a funded PhD student, retirement accounts are not accessible to grad students though. Maternity leave is also limited for grad students as we are not guaranteed the same leave as employees

    Several options for health insurance, always with an employee contribution. They 've been starting to push the USC network option more, but they still have a couple of HMO options too. 1-day of sick time a month, and vacation days depend on time at institution - generous though. They contribute up to 10% to your 401k too, if you contribute 5%. Multitude of perks, including commuter benefits for public transit.

    USC has multiple options for health insurance (PPO, EPO, HMO). The preferred providers will always be within the USC Network. The USC Retirement Program matches your pre-tax or Roth contributions up to 5% of your eligible earnings. The university also makes a 5% non-elective contribution whether or not you contribute.
