I have been working at University of Southern California part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

See above. All resources needed to create an excellent academic experience within which to teach and mentor students is provided.

Cons

the department in which I teach is very big and therefore it is often difficult to maintain contact with all of my colleagues. That issue is minor compared to the support available.

    I love what they do. The Physical Education Department if full of hig-energy fit emplouyees. They make my every day wonderful.

    Cons

    There is not much wrong except with the fact that there isnt more for the Equipment Manager to do. More hours at a higher salary would be wonderful.

    I have been working at University of Southern California full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice weather but that's about it.

    Cons

    The students are low calibre and largely just rich kids at university because it's what you do, not here to learn and get ahead.
    Terrible department structures and pay.
    Little to no management.
    Awful research environment as there is little equipment and the University is poorly funded for life sciences research.
    Feel like we can't make a difference and postdocs are treated like students.

    Advice to Management

    Get some better Asst. Profs. Really low impact staff. Some can't even speak English properly.
