    I have been working at University of South Carolina full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have enjoyed my time working at USC very much. I have found almost everyone I have worked with directly, including faculty, staff and students, to be friendly and easy to work with. During my time here, I moved from an administrative position to a more advanced specialized role, and I am thankful I have been given the opportunity to advance.

    Cons

    You need to remember that you are a state employee working at a state agency. Yes, it is a university, but in terms of procedures, guidelines, rules, etc., you're just a state employee. For me, this has meant it has been difficult for me to change titles as my role has changed, and it means that there are set salaries for various titles and duties. It was difficult for my manager to put through a raise she wanted to give me recently, but I was lucky that she was willing to follow the process through. There is bureaucracy, just like in any state-run agency, that sometimes makes it difficult to get things done.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see additional opportunities for masters-level employees in research.
