I worked at University of Southern California full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

USC takes care of its employee. As a graduate student, you get two years of stipends where you will not be required to do any teaching. You can just focus on research and graduating.

Cons

the location. Its neighborhood is not very safe. During the time I was there, many students have gotten robbed. Some have been murdered. USC has increased its security in the neighborhood in recent years - but still didn't feel safe.

Advice to Management

None. Their are doing a great job.

    Pros

    Great chance to work with students.
    Welcoming and supportive environment.

    Pay was to low. Some of the non-usc people did not really care about the office culture that usc was trying to sustain, but they were rather working for money.
